Azelaic Acid 15% Foam (AAF) vs Metronidazole Cream (MC) and Metronidazole Gel (MG)

"MG- and MC-treated patients more frequently reported treatment concerns and side effects than AAF-treated patients, and tolerability of those side effects was higher for patients treated with AAF. While treatment cost is a more frequent concern in patients treated with AAF, these patients less frequently reported concerns with treatment efficacy and reported similar or greater tolerance to side effects than patients treated with either MC or MG."

So according to the above paper you probably should consider AAF over MC/MG and refer this paper to your dermatologist who is prescribing metronidazole instead of azelaic acid
