Latest Rosacea Review Newsletter Available Online

Posted: 05/09/2016

Spring 2016 Rosacea ReviewThe latest issue of Rosacea Review is now online, featuring a new study that finds genetics and environmental factors may equally contribute to rosacea. In other research news, medical scientists have identified a family of molecules that may play an important role in the development of rosacea; computers may someday be used to assess facial redness; and a new theory suggests that rosacea may be the result of a genetic adaptation that originated in people who lived in the colder climates of northern Europe.

Though it may come as no surprise, an NRS survey found that rosacea patients pay close attention to ingredient labels when it comes to skin-care products. We advise rosacea sufferers to be similarly attentive to the ingredients in their food and beverages in our tips section, and check out the Q&A column for answers to questions about skin sensitivity and the use of ice cubes. 

Read the full online issue here. If you haven’t already, take our newest survey on comorbidity – the occurrence of other diseases with rosacea. Results will appear in a future Rosacea Review.

The National Rosacea Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people with rosacea by raising awareness, providing public health information and supporting medical research on this widespread but little-known disorder. The information the Society provides should not be considered medical advice, nor is it intended to replace

consultation with a qualified physician. The Society does not evaluate, endorse or recommend any particular medications, products, equipment or treatments. Rosacea may vary substantially from one patient to another, and treatment must be tailored by a physician for each individual case. For more information, visit About Us.
