Common Questions and Answers about Metrogel for face

metrogel

I use Metrogel 1% on my face for acne. It works great! However, is it completely safe to use during pre and post pregnancy?
Hi there, Next week I will have been on Metrogel .075% two months, for my periocular dermatitis under my right eye. Its only under the right eye. It came from a dermatoligist 3 years ago telling me it was okay to use Hydracortisone cream on my face for dryness/redness. Well I used it just about everday for 3 years and I heard its bad to use it for prolonged amounts of time. So I stopped completely. I developed the dermatitis several months ago, about 6 months ago.
the metro gel is used for b/v bacteria vaginosis and if used internally (vaginal area) it is said not to be safe during first trimester but when used for acne on the face im not sure since its not used internally.

I've been using metrogel for a few months now for a place on my cheek. It's finally clearing up, but my entire face was scratched up today, including the area I typically treat with metrogel. Is the metrogel safe to use on fresh scratches and sores to continue treatment. If so, would it be good to also put the metrogel on my entire face to help with all the scratch marks?
My dermatologist just diagnosed Rosacea. I have Metrogel and hav seen quite an improvement in almost 2 weeks. She wants me on it for 2 months and then she'll check. Hope this helps.
Hi again, After using metrogel for 5 days my face was peeling really badly and itches so badly I can't sleep. Then It started swelling in the infranasal area on both sides and then to the left side. I went back to the dematologists PA and he said I may have steroid induced rebound as it was about 3 weeks since I had last used it and he said that was about the time you get rebound. He wasn't sure if it was a reaction from the Metrogel.
Could be Rosacea. There are various triggers for this. I also have Rosacea and Ulcerative colitis. My triggers are being over heated, caffeine, smoking and alcohol. I am on Metrogel right now and it controls it somewhat. But I have a hard time staying away from my triggers, especially my coffee!
An excellent product is Rosaliac micellar gel by La Roche-Posay which is for skin prone to redness. Metrogel is quite strong. It is normal to have an initial outbreak but if your skin does not start to improve or you feel you are having a bad reaction, speek to your doctor about changing products. I have acne and rosacea, email me on the Acne forum.
) As to treatment, as stated, Elidel is often prescribed for all three conditions. Be VERY careful if your doctor prescribed anything with cortisone in it for your face except for maybe a very short period like two weeks, and even then, only very occasionally. Some doctors will NEVER prescribe cortisone for the face, even the 1% hydrocortisone you can get at the drug store.
Anyway he prescribed me some rosex (metrogel) which i have used on the blotches for two weeks. It stings a touch while the redness still seems to be there. Doing some research on the ailment, I now question whether this is rosacea as I have never ever flushed or blushed or even had a red face, let alone rosy cheeks in my life. Not to mention not having acne when I was young. In fact, my face is flawless apart from these two small red patches under my eyes.
I have had for the past 2 years small red bumps on my face in top of my nose, cheeks, around the nose, forehead, etc...I get red but not as much like other people. I used Elidel for 11/2 years and it worked great now I had to stop because of fear that it causes cancer. I have been using metrogel for 8 days but at first it was great and now my pimples are starting to come out again is that part of the process???
The nurse I spoke with said I was having a reaction to the Metrogel and called in more Desonide for me to take. For the past week, I've used nothing on my face except my hypoallergenic products. I've been taking Benadryl too thinking it may be an allergy. Nothing seems to be helping and I am so upset! My brother is getting married in a month, I'm in the wedding and I look horrible! I'm crying right now. I don't know what to do and my Dermatologist doesn't seem to care too much. HELP!!!
daktarin(for fungal) cream for 8 weeks, no change,,,,, then metrogel(for rosceasia, bacterial infection) for 7 weeks no change,, it comes and goes and i have little spots which are filled with white pus but also the area around my mouth is red at times and flaky under my nose(seems to be when i use aloe vera there, but this helps with the healing and spots) the only thing that iv been suffering with prior to this skin issue(iv never had spots before) is that Im suffering with post natal depr
Lastly, she was on a steroid (diprolene) for years for the face (lupus). After the bad burns from the Metrogel, and it healed the dermatologist took her off of the steroid cold turkey and said to just use certain creams until the breakouts from the steroid went away. The "acne" apparently isn't due to the steroid and doesn't look like a rash it looks like acne. thanks for any information or help you can give. She has been in menopause for 10 years and is 58 years old.
She has healed from that but wonders if there are any prolonged affects of a problem like that. Lastly, she was on a steroid (diprolene) for years for the face (lupus).

face when I get angry or nervous... weird huh? lol it stinks! Oh, the meds for my face is call Metrogel one percent.. good luck!
My family practice doctor has prescribed metrogel for rosacea. After reading about rosacea, I am thinking it might not be rosacea. I do not have any rash or bumps, just little veins filled with blood. I am a male in my early 50s, I do not drink alcohol or smoke. I drink only one cup of coffee a day. There doesn't seem to be a time it is better or worse. I just seem to get more red with each subsequent year. Any idea what this could be? Do you think it is a form of rosacea?
Often I replace the Sodium Sulfacetamide with OTC Rezamid lotion. In general, the Sulfa or Rezamid is for pimples/pustules and the Metrogel for redness. If any scaling I will use Elidel Cream which also can help the redness. Occasionally I just mix up two or three on my hand and apply them together. The above seems to work for me but you may have to experiment. Very important to use a very strong and non-irritating sunscreen if the sun is a trigger which it is for many with rosacea.
I never had anything on my face but after using a few exfoliating pads, I think I did scarring of my face don't know but nothing seems to work and for the past 2 years I have been going crazy. Oh I also have them in my forehead and chin and they burn the same way. HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!
they ruined my sister's face. Ended up looking like a bad botox face job. 6 months and still not over it! I have the red blotches around neck (front and back). I had a shingles preventive shot 2 years ago so we don't think it is shingles; however, you do have a "low" percentage chance that virus will show it's ugly face anyway...without sores though. My general Dr. has me on Roshea lotion (cooling and antibotic)--MetroGel. It helps greatly the symptoms but is no cure.
On the one hand, I have read that rosacea frequently becomes progressively worse and treating it early can be very helpful in halting it, so I could spread the MetroGel all over my face as a preventative measure. Plus, I wonder if it would improve the irritation. On the other hand, I understand there can be a risk of developing anti-biotic resistance, plus I fear increasing the number of “flare ups.” (I have found emollients and topical medicines can have that effect on me.
Noriate is similar to Metrogel and Metrocream, both which have been used for rosacea for some time. I currently alternate Metrogel with some sulfur products as mentioned previously. You might try both and see what works best -- be it one or in combination. It's the Elidel that I tend to use for the flaking areas which tend to be the seb derm. Sometimes it's really hard to figure out what works for what since its quite common that seb derm is layered with rosacea.
It won't stop, it will peel off and be red and raw and flake over again and again. Do you recommend I keep using metrogel or do you believe that this could be another condition. The hard spots on my face that peel , feel like they might be scarring and are formingwhat looks like a hole in my face, are these normal effects of rosacea?
My doctor gave me a 1% metrogel for tropical area use. I applied for a month. It almost recover. But at the end of last year ,the big area of reddish papules come again. More seriously than before. It spread up beside the nose and top of eyes. I made an appointment to see my doctor but it will take one month to wait the line to see him. I really afraid that the reddish papules will cover my whole face. Sometimes I feel itchy,especially top eye area.
I need to narrow down a skin condition that has appeared within the past year to 1 to 1 1/2 years. On my right side of the face starting from the side of the nose running along the cheek bone and ending just to the corner of the eye, is a light discoloration of my skin. Let me add that I have light brown skin tone (Filipino ethnicity). This area is consistent and seems to become more pronounced as time goes on.
Ivermectin for red flaky rash on the face. Ivermectin worked for me. I went to a farm "Supply" sore and bought a tube of it used for horses and applied it topically to my face once every three days for a month. It worked for me. Other people have had good results with hand sanitizer applied topically. Worked for me but was not a permanent cure.
For pimples on nose and face. c) Hepar Sulph : For pimples having white pus. d) Aurum Ars : For pimples on face. e) Belladonna : For inflamed pustular acnes thuja and silicea are the best...my dad is very fond of them.
Before all my facial problems started, Had gotten sick and used a ZPack- antibiotic pills a month before facial problems began, had gone to get a spray tan three months before problems began and had spray tans before as well as went to tanning bed about 12 times within the last 3 years, used Bare Miinerals make-up for a couple months before problems began (which I noticed made my face itch and I had started noticing some bumps forming on the sides of my face when I was using it during the wi
Use a good cleanser for oily skin 2 or 3 times a day. If you also have acne rosacea ask your doctor for a cream called Metrogel (contains metronidozole). Eloise.
