April has been designated as Rosacea Awareness Month to educate the public on this often life-disruptive condition now affecting more than 16 million Americans – and most of them don’t know it.
While rosacea may make some patients want to tear their proverbial hair out, a recent small study discovered a potential association between the disorder and a form of progressive hair loss in women.
A new study suggests a further understanding of the disease process of rosacea in which both the innate immune system and the acquired immune system may play a role in the development of inflammation.
