Treatment - Eye involvement

A close cooperation between the dermatologist and the ophthalmologist is required if ophthalmic rosacea is present.

Topical

The application of warm compresses and topical antibiotics such as metronidazole gel are commonly used therapeutic measures.


Systemic

Oral antibiotics may also be used, such as tetracycline hydrochloride and doxycycline.

Patients with ophthalmic rosacea should not take isotretinoin as it worsens eye symptoms.
