Thank you for the question. Rosacea of is a skin condition that affects the eyelids and results in irritated eyes. Azasite is an antibiotic eye drop with anti-inflammatory properties and can be effect for rosacea limited to the eyelids. For more generalized rosacea, antibiotic pills of doxycycline works very well. These typically take a few weeks to start working.
