Save Rhofade or Mirvaso for Rosacea Patients With Persistent Facial Redness
Rhofade (ROH-fayd) cream will be a new topical Rx option for reducing facial redness due to rosacea.
It contains 1% oxymetazoline...the same active ingredient in many OTC 0.05% nasal decongestant sprays (Afrin, etc).
Think of Rhofade as similar to brimonidine gel (Mirvaso). Both are vasoconstrictors that shrink dilated blood vessels to decrease redness.
