Also featured is a report on a presentation by a dermatologist and psychologist on the emotional impact of the condition. Results from the patient survey on rosacea flare-ups are also included.
Other features in the issue include tips for surviving holiday cuisine, Q&As on topical medication and the use of lasers, a new success story and a new patient survey on the seasonal effects of rosacea.
