Combining Metronidazole And Retinal

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I have recently (past 6 months) found myself a new victim of rosacea. I self diagnosed and researched products on the internet and found a brand called 'osmosis'

I am currently using their cleanser, 'calm' serum which includes retinal and then moisturiser.

Today I went to the doctor who prescribed me Rozex (metronidazole) gel. It says to apply to skin morning and night. Do I keep using my osmosis serum? In which order do I apply all my products?

Many thanks

metronidazole we use in hospital and commonly called Flagyl to treat bacterial infections. I would use the metronidazole by itself for while and let it knock out the bacteria. I would not mix it with your 'osmosis' product because we don't know if it will diminish the effectiveness of your antibiotic.
