Treatments and drugs

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Ocular rosacea can usually be controlled with medication and home eye care. But these steps don't cure the condition, which often remains chronic or recurs after an apparent remission.

Your doctor may prescribe temporary use of oral antibiotics, such as tetracycline, doxycycline, erythromycin and minocycline. For severe disease, you may need to take an antibiotic for a longer time.
