Can Children Use Metronidazole Gel?
Metronidazole gel is not approved for use in children or adolescents, as it has not been adequately studied in people younger than 18 years old. Talk with your child's healthcare provider about the benefits and risks of using this medicine in children.
What About Off-Label Uses?
On occasion, a healthcare provider may recommend this product for something other than treating rosacea. This is called an "off-label" use. Metronidazole gel is sometimes used off-label to reduce odor caused by certain types of wounds or tumors.
