Is There Already Metronidazole In Indonesia In Gel Form?
Hello Widodobudi, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Metronidazole in Indonesia is only available in the form of oral medication (tablets or suspensions / syrups), intravenous drugs (infusions), and drugs in the form of ovules (capsules inserted into the vagina). Metronidazole in the form of cream or gel is not yet available, so you really can't buy it in Indonesia.
Basically the main therapy for rosacea is to avoid things that can trigger redness on the face, for example:
spicy food or hot drinks
extreme room temperature
direct sun exposure
the weather is too hot, too cold and dry
You are also advised to use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every time you leave the house, and do facial treatments properly. Wash your face with a mild soap, avoid rubbing your face too strong / too rough, including when you dry your face.
You can also discuss further with your dermatologist about alternative therapies if indeed you feel uncomfortable using the medication currently given.
