Homai Baria of India felt quite alone when she was diagnosed with rosacea.
"In India, I have still not heard much about the term rosacea," Baria said. As a result, many people in her country don't understand her condition.
"My family, friends and colleagues at work would sometimes make unkind comments about what was happening to me," she said, referring to her red face and rosacea flareups. "I went to the point of avoiding going to parties and social gatherings. I would often cry when I was alone."
