Rosacea Often Runs in the Family, Survey Finds
You may have gotten your eyebrows from your great uncle, your sense of humor from your grandma, and your rosacea from your parents, according to a recent National Rosacea Society (NRS) survey.
More than half (51 percent) of the 610 patients who took part in the survey said they had at least one family member with rosacea. Of those, surprisingly more said their father had rosacea (44 percent) than their mother (37 percent). Thirty-six percent said a sibling also had the disorder, and 21 percent had a child who developed the condition.
