Rosacea: You can use the metrogel on your scalp and face. It's important to keep you stress levels in check as this will make both conditions worse. You can take biotin supplements to help with the hair loss, however, if you are prone to male pattern baldness there's really nothing you can do about it. Make sure you f/u with your dermatologist. Feel better soon
