I have rosacea on my cheeks that is inflammed. My doctor prescribed Metrolgel topical as well as Doxicycline in past and it didn't work. He now is switching me to clindamycin. Wondered how this is different as it doesn't appear to specifically be for rosacea vs. yeast infections?

Both clindamycin cream and metrogel are topical antibiotics used in the treatment of rosacea.
Topical Clindamycin has been shown to be a safe and effective alternative to more typical treatments.
It reduces the inflammation and lesions in much the same way as the Metrogel.
Clindamyin, like Metrogel, is not effective against yeast infections.
