Suggest Rosiver or Finacea for Rosacea When Metronidazole Isn't Enough
Rosiver (ROE-sih-ver, ivermectin 1% cream) will be a new topical option for rosacea in adults.
It'll be an alternative to other topicals for inflammation, papules, and pustules...but not for flushing and dilated blood vessels.
Ivermectin has anti-inflammatory effects. It also kills skin mites that might contribute to rosacea's inflammation and bumps.
