The Fall 2008 Rosacea Review is now online. This issue highlights two ongoing studies funded by the National Rosacea Society that investigate how specific substances in the body may produce the signs and symptoms of rosacea, as well as a new prevalence study that shows the disorder may be far more common than widely believed. 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.
The National Rosacea Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people with rosacea by raising awareness, providing public health information and supporting medical research on this widespread but little-known disorder. The information the Society provides should not be considered medical advice, nor is it intended to replace
consultation with a qualified physician. The Society does not evaluate, endorse or recommend any particular medications, products, equipment or treatments. Rosacea may vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must be tailored by a physician for each individual case. For more information, visit About Us.
