I've been using it for about 2 weeks. After the first few days I noticed a considerable difference in the size of my pores. I tend to have oily skin and as a bonus this medication seems to decrease oil production. I will keep using it.

MetroGel (metronidazole): I had flushing rosacea for years before it was diagnosed. Then I spent years trying one medication after another to control it but due to side effects could not take them. About 2 years ago I was prescribed MetroGel. It has changed my life. The persistent flushing and burning are almost completely gone. I still wear sunscreen and a hat when outside but now I can read at night and watch TV with the lights on.

MetroCream (metronidazole): I have found Metrocream to be very effective in combating symptoms of rosacea, especially the pimple like lesions I get around my nose & chin area. I use only when needed and notice after just a couple of applications a dramatic improvement.

MetroGel (metronidazole): Very good results. My skin has not looked this good in a very long time.

MetroGel (metronidazole): Many people don't seem to like Metrogel, but for me its really made a difference in my Rosacea. One thing rosacea sufferers have to realize is that this treatment takes time. I would have to say that it took a good 2.5 months to start seeing noticeable improvement with continued improvement the longer I use it. On a side note I would like to add that my ears would flush when triggered by heat or stress and so I started to use Metrogel on them and it has helped reduce the flushing. Overall pretty happy with results only negative aspect is the amount of time it takes for it to work.

MetroGel (metronidazole): I used this in conjunction with Clenia. It worked great for about a year and now doesn't seem to do anything.

MetroCream (metronidazole): Have used this medication for months and found it to be ineffective in controlling the rosacea. I continued to use it only at the urging of my physician, applying it three times daily with NO symptomatic relief.

MetroCream (metronidazole): This medication has been very effective in controlling my rosacea symptoms. Since it has a cream base, it helps with my dry skin as well.

MetroGel (metronidazole): At first, this medication seemed great. After a month or so I started breaking out more than ever. I went back to using Metrocream and haven't had a serious breakout in years.

MetroCream (metronidazole): Useful for rosacea that is not extremely out of control. If you have just a few pustules it can be helpful when used regularly.

MetroGel (metronidazole): I have found that MetroGel clears up the pustule like eruptions within 72 hours.
