Answer

H pylori plays an as yet undetermined role in rosacea, and some have advocated H pylori eradication in the treatment of rosacea. Thus, in some cases of rosacea, antiulcer combination regimens, such as amoxicillin or clarithromycin, metronidazole, bismuth, and an H2 antagonist, have been used with varying efficacy.
