Suggest Soolantra for Rosacea if Metronidazole Isn't Enough
Soolantra (soo-LAN-trah, ivermectin 1% cream) will be a new topical option for rosacea.
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.
