About the Author

Rosacea is a chronic and progressive disorder of the face, characterized by some or all of the following symptoms: extremely sensitive skin, blushing, flushing, permanent redness, burning, stinging, swelling, papules, pustules, broken capillaries, blepharitis and red gritty eyes (which can lead to visual disturbances), and in more advanced cases, a disfiguring bulbous nose. Men and women of all ages can be affected, with an estimated 45 million sufferers worldwide. The Rosacea Research & Development Institute is a non-profit corporation founded and run by volunteer rosaceans, as a patient advocacy organization and to promote rosacea research. The goal of the RRDi is to contribute to the development of improved treatments for rosacea, and ideally, to help find a cure.
