Rosacea might be fairly common — it’s thought to affect as many as 1 in 10 people in the UK — but it’s still a relatively poorly understood condition. In fact, the root cause of rosacea still stumps medical professionals (it’s suggested genetics or environmental factors may play a part), and there’s also no known cure.

What we do know about rosacea is that it’s a long-term skin condition characterised by the appearance of redness and visible blood vessels on the skin of the face — most commonly affecting the cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin. Cases fluctuate from mild to severe and often involve temporary flare-ups where symptoms worsen for a period before subsiding.

Fortunately, while there’s no cure for rosacea, there are a number of effective treatment options for this curious condition. These include lifestyle changes — such as limiting exposure to known triggers and reducing stress — and prescription and over-the-counter medications.

One such prescription medication is Rozex, a gel-based antibiotic that can effectively reduce skin redness and inflammation caused by rosacea. Available on prescription or via an online consultation at The Independent Pharmacy, Rozex Gel is one of the most popular topical treatment options for rosacea sufferers.

But just how effective is Rozex? To find out, let’s turn to the people who really ought to know — those who have actually used it.
