MetroGel-Vaginal (metronidazole) for Bacterial Vaginitis: “So last year I had my very first yeast infection, and bv. Recently I started eating a bunch of of probiotic since I didn’t want to have to keep taking antibiotic that were killing my good and bad bacteria. I had sex with my boyfriend and there was an odor that shouldn’t been there. So I went to the dr. She said we found a little amount of bv and the tiniest bit of yeast and gave me the gel . But I had told her the medicine I don’t react well to because it always puts me back with a yeast infection which I had no symptoms of it was just a odor now day two of taking gel my vagina is on fire from the yeast and now I’m actually suffering from something else now !”

For Rosacea: “I tried Soolantra first for my rosacea/acne but it made by face wayyy worse. Red, bumpy, inflamed. Apparently I had some kind of reaction to it. I was switched to metronidazole gel about a month ago. Within days my face started clearing up and my skin became extremely soft for the first time ever. I don’t even need to moisturize anymore, it’s amazing! I’ve been extremely impressed with this medication and I’ll keep using it as long as they make it!”

MetroGel-Vaginal (metronidazole) for Bacterial Vaginitis: “Have BV Gardnerella and used the gel for 3 nights out of 5 day prescription. Today I am experiencing extreme breast pain on both sides. Previous nights it caused pelvic pain briefly after application. I will not complete the dosage with this much pain. It did eliminate the odor. I have not been diagnosed with BV in previous years and hope it will not cause yeast infection.”

For Rosacea: “At 63 I saw a dermatologist in November of 2017 to check for skin cancer (found a precancerous spot). My face and ears get really red at times. I was told I also have Rosacea. After doing some research, I now know that certain foods, heat, alcohol, among other things trigger the redness. I was prescribed metronidazole topical and told to use it 2x daily. I also purchased Avene gentle cleanser and other products to help my condition. I have been pretty faithful in using these. I am also trying to watch what I eat or drink. At first this cream seemed to burn. It has gotten better. I am not getting as red as often. However my cheeks are almost always pink. I went to the dermatologist for a follow up this week. I was advised to continue to use metronidazole. I am giving it more time and hoping that this works.”

For Bacterial Vaginitis: “I was diagnosed with BV and recently prescribed metronidazole gel. After just 1 application I became extremely sick! Started with extreme bloating and nausea, and dizziness during the day… by the end of the night I had started coughing and having a sore throat. Did not sleep the entire night, was coughing violently all night into the next day, all day and night again the next. The second night, (I had already stopped the medicine the night before) I had excruciating body pain, the shakes, and extreme hot and cold flashes. Took all I had not to rush myself to the hospital! Literally thought I was going to die… I had never been so extremely hot before in my life! Needless to say, I beg of anyone DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICINE!!!! SO not worth it… terrifying experience!”

For Rosacea: “Realised I had Rosacea after speaking to my dad who was recently diagnosed. I thought I had adult acne (I’m 37). I would say it is mild as it’s only on 1 of my cheeks but it didn’t look good under makeup. I have been using this for 1 week and the effect has been miraculous. My skin on my cheek is completely clear of the rosacea which is amazing. I wish I would have found this 2 years ago.”
