General Information

What is Finacea?

Finacea is a topical gel or cream containing 15% azelaic acid. It's primarily used to treat rosacea, a common skin condition causing redness, visible blood vessels, and small red, pus-filled bumps on the face.

How does Finacea work?

Azelaic acid, the active ingredient in Finacea, helps the skin to renew itself more quickly and therefore reduces pimple and blackhead formation. It helps to kill the bacteria that cause acne and rosacea.

How effective is Finacea?

Finacea has been found to be effective in reducing the inflammation and redness associated with rosacea. However, the response to the treatment varies from person to person. It's important to note that rosacea is a chronic condition, and while Finacea helps manage symptoms, it does not cure the condition.

Dosage & Usage

How to use Finacea?

Clean the skin thoroughly before applying Finacea. Then apply a thin layer of the medication to the affected area, usually twice daily (morning and evening) or as directed by a doctor. Rub it in gently. Avoid getting the medication in the eyes or inside the nose or mouth.

Availability & Pricing

Where can I buy Finacea?

Finacea is a prescription medication, so it needs to be prescribed by a healthcare provider. It is often available at local pharmacies and is available for purchase from reputable online pharmacies.

Is azelaic acid 15% prescription only?

Yes, Finacea (azelaic acid 15%) is a prescription medication. In the UK, it requires a prescription from a healthcare provider.

Side Effects & Considerations

Finacea warnings

As with any medication, there are warnings associated with Finacea. It potentially causes burning, stinging, tingling, or itching at the application site. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell a doctor promptly.

Finacea must not be used if the individual is allergic to azelaic acid or any ingredients in the product. It is important to always discuss one's medical history with a doctor before starting any new medication.

Alternatives & Related Treatments

Finacea alternatives

If Finacea is not effective or suitable, other treatments for rosacea include metronidazole cream or gel, and oral antibiotics such as tetracycline, doxycycline, and minocycline. Additionally, other forms of azelaic acid might be considered, or treatments like ivermectin cream. It's always important to discuss alternative treatments with a healthcare provider.


Can Finacea be purchased online?

Yes, prescription drugs are available for purchase online through reputable and regulated pharmacies. However, a valid prescription from a healthcare provider is necessary.

Does Finacea get rid of redness?

Yes, Finacea is known to help reduce the redness associated with rosacea by decreasing inflammation in the skin.

How long does it take for Finacea to work on rosacea?

Results vary from person to person, but a user might see improvement in their rosacea symptoms after 4 weeks of using Finacea. However, it might take longer for some people, so one must use the medication as directed by a doctor.

Additional Considerations

What should you expect: Finacea before and after

When using Finacea, it's important to remember that results might take time. As noted, many people start to see a decrease in rosacea symptoms after about 4 weeks, but it might take longer for some individuals. Before and after comparisons must, therefore, be made over several weeks or months, rather than expecting immediate changes.

Finacea Gel Reviews

Reviews for Finacea gel are generally positive, with many users reporting a significant reduction in redness and inflammation associated with rosacea. However, some users have reported side effects such as skin irritation or dryness. As always, experiences vary widely between individuals, and what works well for one person might not work as well for another.

Finacea Gel Amazon and Other Online Retailers

While coming across listings for Finacea or other azelaic acid products on sites like Amazon, it's crucial to remember that Finacea is a prescription medication in the UK. Any reputable online pharmacy must require a prescription from a healthcare provider before selling the medication. Always be sure to buy from a legitimate and regulated source to protect health and safety.

Other Rosacea Treatments

How do you use azelaic acid for rosacea?

Using azelaic acid for rosacea typically involves applying a thin layer of the medication (in the form of a gel, foam, or cream) to clean, dry skin. Azelaic Acid is usually done twice a day — in the morning and evening — or as directed by a healthcare provider.

What are some other rosacea treatment options?

Besides Finacea (azelaic acid), other treatments for rosacea include oral and topical antibiotics, brimonidine, and laser and light therapies. Skincare routines that involve gentle, non-irritating products help manage rosacea symptoms. Always consult a healthcare provider for a treatment plan tailored to each individual's needs.

Remember, it's essential to use medications like Finacea as directed by a healthcare provider and to discuss any concerns or side effects one experiences. While rosacea is a chronic condition, with the right treatment, symptoms are able to be effectively managed and controlled.

Trimethoprim is commonly prescribed to treat urinary tract infections, a prevalent health issue affecting the urinary system. This medication is effective against a range of bacterial infections, notably those affecting the urinary and respiratory tracts. Trimethoprim works by targeting and inhibiting a substance called folic acid, which is crucial for the growth and reproduction of bacteria. By disrupting the production of folic acid, Trimethoprim hinders the development of bacteria, thereby helping to clear infections.

While it's primarily known for its effectiveness in treating urinary tract infections, it's also used for certain types of respiratory tract infections. However, like any medication, the safety of Trimethoprim for an individual depends on various factors including their overall health, other medications they may be taking, and their specific medical history. It's important to consult a healthcare professional to determine if Trimethoprim is a safe and appropriate treatment option.

Are there any foods that should be avoided when taking Finacea Gel?

We recommend you read the patient information leaflet for this product thoroughly before taking the treatment. This is essential to understanding any interactions that can occur and to take the medication safely.

The time it takes for a Finacea Gel 200mg to work can vary greatly depending on several factors, such as the strength, the individual's age, weight, and overall health, as well as any potential interactions with other medications or substances. Generally, the effects of Finacea Gel may be noticeable within the time frame outlined by the prescribing pharmacist. It is important to follow the prescribed dosage and instructions provided by your healthcare professional, and to consult them if you have any concerns or questions about the medication's efficacy or possible side effects.

Additional Information on Trimethoprim 200mg

Trimethoprim 200mg, the usual dose, is a potent antibiotic primarily used to treat bacterial infections, particularly those related to urinary infections such as cystitis. This medication operates by inhibiting the bacterial production of a vital substance, folic acid, thereby preventing the growth and spread of the infection.

While it is highly effective in managing urinary tract infections, it's essential to be aware of certain precautions. Individuals with severe liver problems, or blood disorders, should consult their healthcare provider before using Trimethoprim, as it may not be the safest option for them. Additionally, it's a common misconception that cranberry juice can treat urine infections; however, while it may help alleviate cystitis symptoms by preventing bacteria from adhering to the bladder walls, it should not replace medical treatment with antibiotics like Trimethoprim.

As with any antibiotic, it's crucial to complete the full course as prescribed, even if symptoms improve, to effectively treat bacterial infections and prevent antibiotic resistance.
