Finacea is a topical aqueous gel comprising of a saturated dicarboxylic acid referred to as azelaic acid. The acid aids in the renewal of the skin, therefore reducing blackhead and pimple formation as well as killing bacteria that results in rosacea and acne. Finacea is used for a treatment of rosacea of mild to moderate nature.
Finacea may be used in the form of a gel, aerosol, cream or powder. It should be used precisely as directed and normally applied twice a day. The infected area should be cleaned first before application of the medicine. In a case of an overdose, contact a doctor immediately to avoid serious side effects.
You should discuss with your doctor before starting or stopping the use of another drug to avoid any drug interactions with Finacea.
