Noritate cream is a topical medication consisting of metronidazole, an antibiotic known as nitroimidazoles. We carry the brand choice of this medication in 1% bottles!

Noritate cream is used to treat “adult acne” called rosacea. This is a long-term condition affecting the skin, typically of the face. Symptoms include redness, pimples, swelling, and small and superficial dilated blood vessels, commonly located on the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. Those who are female, light-skinned (and sun damaged), over the age of 30, smokers, or have a family history of rosacea are more likely to develop this condition.

Noritate cream is effective in the treatment of rosacea because of its ability to decrease inflammation in the face which reduces redness, swelling, and the amount of pimples in rosacea patients.

This medication should only be used on the skin for external use only. Do not digest this medication or get it in your mouth, ears, nose, or eyes. If it comes into contact with these places, rinse thoroughly with water. Follow only the directions given to you by your doctor. Use this medication often to get the most benefit out of it
