Is Metranidazole a safe cream to use on face and chest? I've heard & researched many bad effects of this medicine. My doc prescribed it for my allergy

In brief: No harm, but...

Metronidazole is usually harmless on the skin; follow your doctor's advice.
However, there may be some miscommunication: metronidazole is an antibiotic that can help treat acne, rosacea, and skin infections, but is not a treatment for allergy. Check back with your doctor if anything remains unclear.
