The NRS has designated April as Rosacea Awareness Month to educate the public on the current understanding of this often life-disruptive condition.
A recent study in twins found a significant correlation between severity of rosacea and facial bacteria, potentially providing a basis for future research into what causes rosacea and how to treat it.

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.
