Rosacea Awareness Month

Masks Matter in Fight Against Disorder Now Affecting 16 Million Americans

While protective face masks may both hide and exacerbate the signs and symptoms of rosacea, the 16 million Americans who suffer from this disorder now have access to more treatment options and sophisticated medical care than ever before. The National Rosacea Society (NRS) has designated April as Rosacea Awareness Month to educate the public on this common and potentially serious facial condition, and to urge those who suspect they may have it to see a dermatologist for diagnosis and the most up-to-date therapy.

Rosacea Awareness Month Highlights New Treatment Options

Increased medical understanding has led to significant advances in the control of rosacea, allowing many of those who suffer from this chronic red-faced disorder to live free of its conspicuous and embarrassing symptoms for the first time. April has been designated Rosacea Awareness Month by the National Rosacea Society (NRS) to educate the public on this potentially serious condition estimated to affect more than 16 million Americans, and to urge those with the warning signs to see a dermatologist for diagnosis and appropriate therapy.

Rosacea Awareness Month Highlights the Benefits of Medical Therapy

Rosacea can be a vicious cycle – the more you worry about its dreaded appearance, the likelier it may come crashing in at the worst possible time, showing up in the most conspicuous and embarrassing place – the face – as a redness that won’t go away, often with unsightly bumps and pimples. Fortunately today, rosacea sufferers have more reason than ever to be optimistic. The good news is that important advances in medical and procedural therapy have made it increasingly possible to achieve the next best thing: clear skin.

Rosacea Awareness Month Highlights Warning Signs of Increased Health Risks

Is your face trying to tell you something? Although new medical research has discovered the red-faced appearance of rosacea may serve as a potential signal for serious but less visible illnesses, only a small fraction of those suffering from this widespread, often embarrassing disorder are currently being treated. The National Rosacea Society (NRS) has designated April as Rosacea Awareness Month to alert the public to the early warning signs of this chronic and conspicuous facial condition now estimated to affect more than 16 million Americans. 

Rosacea Awareness Month Highlights Emotional Toll

Rosacea’s appearance can cover the spectrum from a perpetual rosy glow to an angry red mask, but the emotional pain it inflicts varies little from patient to patient, according to recent surveys by the National Rosacea Society (NRS). ​April was designated Rosacea Awareness Month by the NRS to alert the public to the early warning signs of this conspicuous, red-faced disorder now estimated to affect more than 16 million Americans.

Rosacea Awareness Spotlights Social Impact, Warning Signs

For many individuals with rosacea, every social occasion can feel like a minefield no matter how mild their condition, according to a new survey by the National Rosacea Society (NRS).  April was designated as Rosacea Awareness Month by the NRS to alert the public to the early warning signs of this chronic and conspicuous facial disorder now estimated to affect more than 16 million Americans.

Rosacea Awareness Month Focuses on Effects Beyond Appearance

Emotional stress and physical pain are among the invisible components of rosacea beyond its red-faced, conspicuous appearance, according to new patient surveys by the National Rosacea Society (NRS). The NRS has designated April as Rosacea Awareness Month to alert the public to the warning signs of this chronic and often progressive facial disorder now estimated to affect more than 16 million Americans.

Rosacea Awareness Month Sheds Light on 'The Great Impostor'

The many potential signs and symptoms of rosacea may so closely mimic other skin disorders that it has often been called "The Great Impostor." The National Rosacea Society (NRS) has designated April as Rosacea Awareness Month to alert the public to the warning signs of this chronic and conspicuous condition and to emphasize the importance of seeking medical help.
