Rosacea medication query

Hi
I suffer from rosacea on my cheeks and nose and am prone to small pus-filled spots. The Metrogel which I was prescribed by a doctor doesn't help at all. Is there a more natural cream/ointment that might help? I do not want to be on antibiotics for three months.
Thank you

Re: Rosacea medication query

Whilst I am unable to give individual advice, there are good treatment options for papulopustular rosacea including azelaic acid, niacinamide and topical Ivermectin. Arrange an appointment with your GP to discuss the range of topical treatment options.
