Azelex cream is a topical medication used to treat pimples caused by rosacea.

Azelaic Acid is a natural dicarboxylic acid that offers antimicrobial activity against acne and skin conditions caused by rosacea. This and the acid’s anticomedonal effects allow Azelex cream to clear pimples. When applied topically, the cream helps reduce the number and size of pimples and facial blemishes caused by rosacea.

Dosage and Administration

The administration schedule and the amount of Azelex cream that is prescribed will vary depending on the individual and the acne condition being treated.
