April Highlights Rosacea Education

Published Online: Monday, April 2nd, 2018

April is Rosacea Awareness Month, and the National Rosacea Society (NRS) is using the designation to educate the public on this widespread facial disorder. Commonly characterized by centrofacial erythema, rosacea is estimated to affect more than 16 million individuals in the United States.

“The earliest signs of rosacea are often overlooked because people assume they are temporary and will go away,” said Dr. John Wolf, chairman of dermatology at Baylor College of Medicine, in a statement. “Unfortunately, without medical treatment, the effects of rosacea often persist and become increasingly severe.”

The goal of Rosacea Awareness Month, according to the NRS, is to help patients affected by rosacea to recognize its signs and symptoms so that they will seek medical help. The society also hopes to generate greater public acceptance and understanding of the condition.
