Abstract

ABSTRACT: Medications are chemical substances utilized in clinical practice to create an identified physiological outcome in patients. In the field of dermatology, medications can be given via specified routes (topical, oral, intravenous, intramuscular, etc.) or as various vehicles (creams, gels, ointments, patches, etc.) to treat conditions that manifest in the skin. This column highlights the use of topical ivermectin as a viable treatment option for the inflammatory lesions associated with papulopustular rosacea. We will discuss its mechanism of action, administration and dosing, adverse effects, and viable alternatives to both newer and more commonly employed medications.
