The Summer 2008 Rosacea Review is now online at rosacea.org. This issue highlights two new studies that trace the effect of rosacea triggers in the search for the cause or causes of this chronic disorder, as well as information on how rosacea patients can track their own triggers in an effort to better manage their condition. Also featured are results from a recent survey on rosacea research, which showed that rosacea patients are most interested in supporting research into potential causes, and two brief articles recapping new scientific reports pertaining to rosacea, one about the possibility of ocular rosacea in children and the second about cinnamon as a potential rosacea trigger.
Other features in the issue include tips for applying topical medication, Q&As on sunscreen and the prevalence of rosacea among those with dark skin, a new success story and a new patient survey on rosacea and flare-ups.

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.
