NOTE: After selecting this product, you will need to complete a short assessment, so we can make sure this medication is suitable for you.

What is Rozex and what is it used for?

Rozex is available in two forms: Gel and Cream. Apply directly to the affected areas to eliminate factors (pimples, pustules (spots), and redness causing rosacea. Rosacea is a long-term skin condition (affects the face), and Rozex manages symptoms but does not cure it.

Rozex Gel and Cream both contain the same active ingredient, metronidazole (a powerful antibiotic), at a concentration of 0.75%.

Metronidazole is classified as an antiprotozoal or antibacterial agent (nitroimidazole antibiotic). It’s very easy to use; just apply it twice daily or as directed. Rozex can effectively clear up your skin condition in a matter of weeks or months.

You can buy Rozex gel or cream online at Ashcroft Pharmacy UK at a competitive price by filling out a quick online consultation form with our pharmacy team.

Rozex treatment course and results timeline:

Recommended Treatment Duration:

  • Full course: Typically, 3-4 months in most cases.
  • Individual variations: Result may vary.

Onset Duration:

  • Effective: Within 4-6 weeks of starting Rozex, particularly redness and inflammation.
  • Gradual Improvement: In general, it may take 2-3 months.

⚠️ If rosacea has not improved after 3 months, stop using the medicine.

⚠️ If needed, you can use it for a long time, but take a break of at least six months and switch to another treatment after a year. Rosacea often comes back, so you may need to repeat treatments.

⚠️ Always consult with your dermatologist to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your case of rosacea. They can provide personalized advice and monitor your progress throughout the treatment course.


How to apply Rozex?

Before application:

  • First, wash and dry the face before applying Rozex
  • Use a mild soap or cleanser to clean your hands and face
  • Then dry your face thoroughly

Applying Rozex:

  • Take a small amount of cream onto your fingertip
  • Apply cream or gel evenly in a thin layer to the affected areas
  • Gently rub it in until absorbed
  • Use twice a day (morning and evening)
  • Avoid contact with eyes and mouth
  • Wash your hands after use
  • Keep using it as prescribed, even if you feel better
  • If applied too close to the eyes, it may cause watering

If you're also using Mirvaso gel, apply it first. Once it's dried, apply the Rozex gel/cream. You can use other cosmetic products after Rozex has dried.

If you forget to use Rozex?

If you forget to use Rozex, it's okay. Just start using it again when you remember. Keep using it regularly for the best results as directed.

If you stop taking Rozex?

Continue using Rozex until you've finished the course, even if your symptoms improve within a few days or weeks. Stopping the medication too early or midway could lead to a recurrence of the infection, as Rosacea tends to respond slowly to antibiotics.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

Rozex is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
