In brief: Yes sometimes
Metronidazole is often prescribed.
Although not a traditional antibiotic, it is thought that "dust mites" in bedding and on the skin may have an association wth rosacea and that this medication may be useful.The red flushing is nearly always eliminated or greatly reduced by using a topical skin care product, theraderm opc reparative gel.
