Rosacea on Television: A Critical Stress Point

Posted: 02/21/2013

As part of the mission of the National Rosacea Society (NRS) to increase awareness, rosacea has been featured on television countless times over the years on local and national news programs as well as entertainment shows. We thought it would be fun and informative to share some of these historical video clips from our archives.

In June 2000, health newscaster Christi Meyers at KRTK-TV in Houston reported on rosacea as a condition that is common but little known, but "as Baby Boomers age it's expected to become widespread."

The story provides an overview of the signs and symptoms of rosacea, its progression, and notes that the condition is a major source of stress in many people's lives. However, in a more recent NRS survey, more than 67 percent of rosacea patients said they were able to reduce their flare-ups by minimizing the causes of and their reactions to stress.

The segment goes on to cover some of the most common triggers of flare-ups, as well as some of the treatments for rosacea.
