About Rozex

Rozex is a topical treatment, available as a cream or gel, for the skin condition known as rosacea. The skin condition is characterised by redness, inflammation, spots and pustules.

The active ingredient in Rozex - metronidazole - belongs to the anti-protozoal and antibacterial class of medications. It works by fighting the bacteria which causes rosacea to clear up the symptoms of the skin condition.

You can buy Rozex online from Prescription Doctor's GPhC registered pharmacy following a quick online medical consultation. If our doctor approves your order before 3pm, our pharmacy will dispense and dispatch your item straight to your door via a discreet, next-day delivery.

How long will it take before I notice a difference?

Rosacea responds slowly to antibiotics so it can take several months of treatment for the effects to become noticeable.

What is rosacea?

Rosacea is a skin condition which causes redness and inflammation on various areas of the face, such as the cheeks and nose. The rash may cause irritation such as a stinging or burning sensation.

It can be difficult to determine what triggers rosacea to flare up in some people, as any number of factors could be to blame. Once a trigger is known, it can be avoided to prevent a flare up from happening in the future.

There are 4 main types of rosacea.

Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea is characterised by flushing, redness of the skin and blood vessels becoming visible.

Papulopustular rosacea causes breakouts similar to acne. Skin often appears red and swollen.

Phymatous rosacea thickens the skin and causes it to have a bumpy texture.

Ocular rosacea affects the skin around the eyes. Eyelids appear swollen and may cause a sty-like lump. Eyes can also be red and irritated.

Is there a cure for rosacea?

There is currently no cure for the condition, but there are a number of treatments you can buy online, such as Rozex, which have been proven to reduce the signs and symptoms of rosacea.

How to use Rozex

Rozex should be applied twice a day - once in the morning and once in the evening - on the areas affected by rosacea. Always follow the instructions of the doctor.

Before applying Rozex, wash the affected area with warm water and a mild soap. Pat dry before applying the treatment.

Gently massage a small amount of the ointment into the affected area, covering the area with a thin layer of the treatment.

Wash your hands after every application.

Rozex side effects and cautions

All medicines carry a risk of side effects. Educating yourself on the medication you take and the possible side effects it may cause is imperative to your safety while undergoing treatment.

It is important to speak to your doctor before you buy Rozex online from Prescription Doctor.

Common side effects (affecting 1 in 10 people) include:

  • Dry skin
  • Redness of the skin
  • Skin discomfort
  • Skin irritation
  • Worsening of rosacea

Uncommon side effects include:

  • Numbness or tingling in the fingers or toes
  • Metallic taste
  • Nausea

If you experience irritation or stinging at the site of application, reduce the amount of the treatment you use or stop the treatment for a few days. If the irritation persists after stopping treatment, seek immediate medical advice.

Rozex is for external use on the face only. Do not ingest (swallow) the treatment.

Avoid getting treatment in your eyes as this will result in significant irritation. If you get any of the treatment in your eyes, rinse your eyes with warm water.

Frequently asked questions
