The latest issue of Rosacea Review is now online, featuring information on how to better navigate the complex system of prescription insurance coverage, as well as new research into the accuracy of standard diagnostic tests currently being used to differentiate lupus and rosacea, two disorders that can share similar symptoms but require different treatment.

And if you’re heading to a special occasion, tips for preparing for social events may help you take appropriate precautions.
