Effect Decrease
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 25
Sex Both Genders
Age Range 18-29, 30-44, 45-64
Notes for this study:
Three months of therapy with 100mg zinc sulfate thrice daily (300mg daily) was associated with a greater reduction in symptoms of rosacea than was placebo treatment.

While a crossover design was used, the washout period was inadequate to prevent a carryover effect.
