Abstract:This article reports that two hundred fifty-one patients with papulopustular rosacea with persistent erythema and telangiectasia were randomly assigned to receive, in double-blind fashion, a 15% azeiaic acid gel or 0.75% metronidazole gel. The respective treatments were applied topically twice a day for 15 weeks. Azelaic acid gel was more effective than metronidazole gel, as demonstrated by a greater reduction in the mean number of lesions and by a greater mean percent decrease in inflammatory lesions.
