- Suitable for Daily Use:
Metrogel helps calm down the redness and bumps caused by rosacea, a common skin condition. It works to gently reduce the signs of rosacea by tackling bacteria and inflammation on your skin.
Metrogel, with its active ingredient metronidazole, not only clears up those unwanted spots and redness but also works to keep them at bay with regular use.
What is Metrogel used for?
Metrogel is primarily used to treat skin redness and inflammatory lesions (bumps) caused by rosacea, a common skin condition. It works by reducing inflammation and targeting bacteria on the skin.
How do I apply Metrogel?
Apply a thin layer of MetroGel to the affected areas of your face once or twice daily, or as directed by your healthcare professional. Ensure your face is clean and dry before application, and avoid contact with your eyes and mouth.
Can I use Metrogel with other skincare products?
Generally, yes. However, always apply MetroGel first and wait for it to dry before using other skincare products. It’s advisable to discuss your skincare routine with a healthcare professional to avoid any potential interactions or irritations.
Does Metrogel have any side effects?
While many people use Metrogel without noticeable side effects, some may experience skin irritation, dryness, or mild stinging. If you experience persistent or severe side effects, stop using the treatment and contact your healthcare provider.
Can I use makeup when using Metrogel?
Yes, you can apply makeup after Metrogel has been applied and fully absorbed. However, ensure to use non-comedogenic products to avoid further skin irritation or worsening of rosacea.
Is Metrogel safe to use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?
Consult your healthcare provider before using Metrogel during pregnancy or while breastfeeding to discuss any potential risks and ensure safe use.
How should I store Metrogel?
Store Metrogel at room temperature, away from heat and direct sunlight. Make sure it's kept out of reach of children and pets.
What should I do if I miss a dose?
If you miss a dose of Metrogel, apply it as soon as you remember. If it’s almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose—do not apply extra Metrogel to make up for the missed dose.
