Sufferer Finds Help on Rosacea Society Web Site

Lori Appling felt completely in the dark. For some unknown reason, her complexion was acting up. She developed welt-like pimples on her cheeks. Her first thought was that it must be acne, but none of the acne products she used improved her symptoms. In fact, her face got worse.

"It really worried me," Appling said. "I never had any problems with my complexion. I knew I had to do something."

Rosacea Help Now Available Through Web Site on Internet

Dermatologists report that the incidence of rosacea, which currently affects an estimated 13 million Americans, appears to be rapidly increasing now that the 77 million members of the baby boom generation have entered the most susceptible age. To encourage wider knowledge of this disorder, the National Rosacea Society has joined the "information highway" to add yet another way for rosacea sufferers to obtain information on their condition.
