Noritate is a topical cream usually prescribed for rosacea, a disease of the skin commonly associated with adult acne and most notably frequent to constant flushing of the face around the cheeks and chin area. more...
Noritate contains 10% anti-inflammatory drug metronidazole designed to reduce redness in inflammed areas. However, it is prescribed to dilate the blood vessels under the facial skin to reduce redness commonly associated with rosacea.
While noritate may get rid of some postules and reduce redness around a whitehead or blackhead, it also causes some acne. While the drug information pamphlet claims only 1% of users see ill effects, a random search on google shows otherwise. In many cases, users see no reduction in general redness associated with rosacea and sometimes even a worsening effect. Similar results are reported for Metrogel, which contains the same 10% metronidazole.
