PubMed RSS Feed - -Topical Ivermectin Is Associated With Improved Erythematotelangiectatic, Papulopustular, and Phymatous Rosacea in a Secondary Analysis

J Drugs Dermatol. 2023 Oct 1;22(10):1063-1064.


Rosacea has variable clinical presentation consisting of four overlapping phenotypes: erythematotelangiectatic, papulopustular, phymatous, and ocular.1 Rosacea's pathogenesis involves increased cutaneous density of Demodex folliculorum mites, which drive inflammation through activation of Toll-like receptor-2.1,2 Thus, topical ivermectin (IVM) 1.0% cream's anti-inflammatory and acaricidal activity provides an effective and targeted treatment for moderate-to-severe rosacea. However, literature assessing IVM is limited to efficacy in treating the papulopustular presentation, limiting generalizability.1,3,4 Although our primary endpoint was to assess patient adherence, the objective of this secondary analysis was to assess IVM efficacy in rosacea, regardless of clinical presentation.
