Rosacea and acne: topical or systemic treatment?

Dtsch Med Wochenschr. 2010 Jul;135(28/29):1435-1439

Authors: Lehmann P

Acne and Rosacea belong to the most common dermatoses of adolescents and adults. A good understanding of these diseases and its particularities is necessary for the differential diagnoses of the many clinical subtypes and in order to enable a stage and phase specific treatment approach. Topical treatments that are widely accepted in rosacea are metronidazole and azelaic acid; investigational agents that may have good therapeutic outcomes are Permethrin and Calcineurin-inhibitors. In acne topical retinoids, benzoylperoxide, antibiotics, and azelaic acid are applied to control the disease. Systemically, antibiotics such as tetracycline and macrolide antibiotics and in severe cases, isotretinoin, can be used in both diseases.
