The Summer Rosacea Review is now online at rosacea.org. This issue celebrates the 20th anniversary of the National Rosacea Society and its ongoing commitment to improving the lives of people with rosacea through awareness, education and support of medical research. The newsletter also recaps a research analysis that attempts to answer a question that has long vexed the scientific community: Which comes first – rosacea or Demodex mites? Also highlighted are results of a patient survey showing that physical discomfort often accompanies the visible signs of rosacea, as well as a summary of a presentation at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology that pointed out that rosacea and seborrhea often occur together. Other features include tips for skillfully applying cosmetics, a Q&A on salicylic acid, a new success story and a new patient survey on the rosacea and other skin disorders.
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.
