My watch list  


Noritate is a topical cream usually prescribed for rosacea, a disease of the skin commonly associated with adult acne and most notably frequent to constant flushing of the face around the cheeks and chin area.

Noritate contains 1% anti-inflammatory drug metronidazole designed to reduce redness in inflamed areas.

While noritate may get rid of some pustules and reduce redness , it has been shown to result in acne in an exceptionally small number of users. The drug information pamphlet claims only 1% of users see ill effects. In many cases, users see no reduction in general redness associated with rosacea and sometimes even a worsening effect. Similar results are reported for Metrogel, which contains the same 1% metronidazole.
