Skinoren is a medicine that helps treat lesions, bumps and swelling caused due to rosacea. Rosacea is a skin disease that causes pimples, flushing and redness on the face. The active ingredient of this medicine is azelaic acid, which belongs to the class of drugs called dicarboxylic acids.
Skinoren (Azelaic acid) is useful in reducing the redness and inflammation/swelling of the skin caused due to rosacea.
Skinoren (Azelaic acid) works by killing the bacteria which cause acne or rosacea and infect the pores. It also reduces the production of keratin, which is a natural substance that is responsible for the development of acne.
