Rosacea Makes Socializing More Challenging, Survey Finds
In a recent NRS survey of 604 rosacea patients on the impact of rosacea on their social life, more than 88 percent said that the effect of rosacea on their appearance had attracted unwanted attention.
About two-thirds of the respondents said they avoided social situations because of their rosacea. Parties and social events were the most common venues for awkward incidents, with 70 percent of patients pointing to them. “Social activities like dancing get too painful when I have a flare-up, so my dance partners notice I feel pain,” one respondent commented.
