Rosacea is a common disease affecting about 3% of world population, most of all women aged between 30 and 50 years. The most frequent cutaneous features are erythema, teleangectasia, papular and pustular lesions. Eyes are frequently involved, displaying lacrimation, photophobia, burning and foreign body sensation. Currently the treatment of rosacea is based on different pharmacological schemes with single or associated drugs, administered topically or systemically. In this paper we evaluated the efficacy of two different drugs usually used in the treatment of rosacea (topical metronidazole and systemic doxycycline), associated with a topical ophthalmic antibiotic to treat the ocular symptoms of rosacea. Both therapeutical schemes were safe and effective, without any statistical differences.
