Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
For rosacea I usually recommend my patients to take capsule doxycycline 100 mg once daily at bedtime and apply metronidazole gel on the affected areas twice daily for 8-10 weeks.
These are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.
Besides this avoid direct sunexposure, use of cosmetics and avoid intake of hot foods and fluids.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
