    The inaugural edition of the Journal of the Rosacea Research & Development Institute is still available at iUniverse and Amazon. We will continue to publish more editions of the journal with volunteers and print on demand publications if we receive donations or we receive enough volunteer articles to publish. You can become part of this if you have the volunteer spirit or if you donate. One of our goals is to offer $1,000 to the author of each published article in our journal, including any professionals, who submit articles to us, but also any rosacea sufferer could receive the $1,000 if an article written by one of our members is published in our journal. So, if enough volunteers write rosacea articles for us to publish we will continue to publish using volunteers as we did with our first publication of the Journal of the RRDi. All you need to do is to post an article in our member forum. We have the ability to upgrade the post to an article for consideration to be published later.

    If you would like to help us reach our goals and continue to publish rosacea articles and keep this web site going, or write an article for our journal please join and post your article in the member forum. We would be happy to consider your article for publication. Members may submit articles in our forum. There are a number of posts on rosacea for your consideration in our member forum to browse through.

    RRDi Members may write reviews of the journal by clicking here.

    Please donate if you would like to help us continue to publish our journal.

    • After a couple of pool visits, I noticed a rash forming on my arms and blotchy, red patches on my face. Like a responsible adult woman, I decided to see my family doctor who told me that the condition of my skin was “concerning” and “may have been caused by chlorine.” The doctor diagnosed it as “probably rosacea” and prescribed me an antibiotic compound cream which I have to slather on my face three times a day.

      Mascarenhas et al. report that TRPV4 expression is upregulated in mast cells in response to the proteolytic cathelicidin fragment LL37 in a murine rosacea model and that TRPV4 loss of function attenuates mast cell degranulation. These findings render TRPV4 a translational-medical target in rosacea. However, signaling mechanisms causing increased expression of TRPV4 await elucidation. Moreover, we ask whether TRPV4-mediated Ca(++)-influx evokes mast cell degranulation.

    • Related Articles Giant Rhinophyma: A Rare Case of Total Nasal Obstruction and Restitutio Ad Integrum. Aesthetic Plast Surg. 2017 Mar 24;: Authors: Wolter A, Scholz T, Liebau J Abstract
      Rhinophyma is considered the end stage in the development of rosacea, accompanied by hypertrophy of the sebaceous glands, which causes an enlargement of the nose. It is an uncommon condition that often results in both functional and cosmetic impairment. A large variety of surgical and nonsurgical treatments have been published to treat it. Closure is usually obtained by wound granulating in by secondary intention, skin grafting or local flaps. Rarely these lesions can attain a giant size and pose a challenge in surgical treatment. We present a 63-year-old male with the necessity for tracheostomy at the ICU due to total nasal obstruction and recurrent episodes of pneumonia caused by a huge giant rhinophyma, which had undergone extreme growth in the last five years. The tumor was removed under general anesthesia by decortication with an electrosurgical wire loop to recreate the aesthetic units of the nose preserving the alar cartilage as well as the pilosebaceous appendages. The wounds healed in by secondary intention with a very pleasant cosmetic and improved functional result. The relevant literature is discussed.
