What is MetroCream used for?
MetroCream is a used to treat certain inflamed skin rashes such as rosacea. Rosacea causes long-term inflammation of the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead, and/or eyelids, with increased redness or acne-like eruptions in these areas of the face. MetroCream is not a cure for this condition, but it reduces the symptoms of rosacea such as inflammation and redness of the skin.
You can buy MetroCream online at My Drug Center. We currently do not have the MetroCream generic alternative available for purchase.
