Acne occurs when the oil glands become blocked with excess bacteria and oil. This is typically the result of hormone fluctuations, heredity and certain medicines. The prescription medication MetroGel can be used to treat skin conditions, such as acne. MetroGel contains the antibiotic metronidazole. It comes in a water-based topical gel or lotion format that can be easily added to a daily skin care routine. According to MetroGel.com, patients who used this medication for 10 consecutive weeks noticed a 71 percent improvement in pimples.

Step 1

Wash the acne-affected skin with a gentle cleanser.

Step 2

Wait approximately 20 minutes before applying the MetroGel.

Step 3

Spread a pea sized amount of MetroGel onto acne-prone areas, rubbing it into the skin. Apply once a day.

Step 4

Wait five minutes for MetroGel to dry, then apply cosmetics as usual.

Step 5

Continue using MetroGel as long as your doctor recommends. It may take up to three weeks before you see an improvement.
