What is Soolantra cream?

Soolantra cream is a topical treatment for rosacea.

The cream contains ivermectin which helps to reduce the redness and inflammation.

What can trigger rosacea?

There are a number of triggers which can cause a flare-up of rosacea, including:

  • the weather
  • diet
  • skin care products
  • exercise
  • stress.

While these can be managed, there are other triggers which cannot. One such trigger of rosacea which is more difficult to manage is a micro-organism which resides in the pores of the facial skin.

These organisms are called Demodex. Research has indicated that these mites - or bacteria which live on the mites themselves - could be the culprit.

The anti-parasitic properties of Soolantra reduce the number of these mites on the skin which, in turn, reduces the inflammation of the skin.

How to use Soolantra cream?

Soolantra is applied once daily.

It is recommended to apply a pea-sized amount of the cream to the chin, forehead, bridge of the nose and each cheek on your face.

Massage the cream gently into these 5 areas to apply a thin layer which covers the areas most prone to flare-ups.

Always wash your hands after applying the cream.

Avoid areas of the skin which have mucous membranes, such as the eyes, mouth and inside of your nose. If you get the cream in any of these areas, promptly wash the area with warm water.

Do not apply cosmetics, such as make-up or other facial creams, before applying Soolantra. However, you can use other facial cosmetic products after applying the cream.
