Metrogel Gel With Pump is applied to the skin to address rosacea, a specific skin disorder characterized as a type of adult acne. It is designed to alleviate symptoms such as redness, swelling, and the occurrence of pimples associated with rosacea.

Metrogel Gel With Pump contains metronidazole, an antibiotic that is believed to operate by reducing inflammation and swelling in the treatment of rosacea. This anti-inflammatory action is crucial in managing the symptoms of the condition.
