Metro Cream is indicated for the topical treatment of inflammatory papules and pustules associated with rosacea, a skin condition characterized by redness, swelling, and the appearance of small, pus-filled bumps on the face. It is a topical cream that contains the active ingredient metronidazole, an antibiotic that helps reduce inflammation and swelling in the skin.


  • Wash and dry your hands before applying the medication.
  • Clean and dry the affected area of the skin. Wait for 15 minutes before applying a thin layer of Metro Cream as directed by your healthcare provider, usually once or twice daily.
  • Wait for 5 minutes before applying cosmetics, if desired.
  • If the medication comes into contact with your eyes, rinse them with large amounts of cool water.
  • Use Metro Cream regularly at the same times each day to get the most benefit from it.
  • It may take about three weeks for your condition to improve and up to nine weeks to see the full benefit of the medication. If your condition does not improve or worsens, inform your healthcare provider.
