    • 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.

      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.

    • Rosacea treatments pay attention to 3 key categories: patient education, skin care, and pharmacologic interventions. 
      Photoprotection and moisturizers are important because rosacea skin has increased transepidermal water loss. Patients should avoid triggers like wind, hot and cold temperatures, exercise, spicy foods, alcohol, hot drinks, and physical or psychological stress.

      Parkinson's disease (PD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative disorders, characterized by a symptom triad comprising resting tremor, rigidity, and akinesia. In addition, non-motor symptoms of PD are well recognized and often precede the overt motor manifestations. Cutaneous manifestations as markers of PD have long been discussed, and cumulative evidence shows an increased prevalence of certain dermatological disorders in PD. Seborrheic dermatitis is considered to occur as a premotor feature of PD referable to dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system. Also, an increased risk of melanoma has been observed in PD. Light hair color is a known risk factor for melanoma, and interestingly the risk of PD is found to be significantly higher in individuals with light hair color and particularly with red hair. Furthermore, several studies have reported a high prevalence of PD in patients with bullous pemphigoid. Moreover, a 2-fold increase in risk of new-onset PD has been observed in patients with rosacea. Besides the association between PD and various dermatological disorders, the skin may be useful in the diagnosis of PD. Early PD pathology is found not only in the brain but also in extra-neuronal tissues. Thus, the protein α-synuclein, which is genetically associated with PD, is present not only in the CNS but also in the skin. Hence, higher values of α-synuclein have been observed in the skin of patients with PD. Furthermore, an increased risk of PD has been found in the Cys/Cys genotype, which is associated with red hair color. In this review, we summarize the current evidence of the association between PD and dermatological disorders, the cutaneous adverse effects of neurological medications, and describe the potential of skin protein expression and biomarkers in identification of risk and diagnosis of PD.

      The strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Dutch.), is the only vegetable belonging to the rosacea family. All strawberry species have now emerged from wild species and belong to the genus Fragaria, being that this genus presents more than 45 described species, and only 11 are considered natural species. Due to the octoploid nature of strawberry and its variability after hybridization, selecting one or more characters may result in unfavorable genotypes and even the exclusion of promising ones, because negative genetic correlations have been observed among them that cause inefficient selection. Therefore, the objective of this study was to verify the efficiency of selection indices in selecting experimental strawberry hybrids for in natura consumption and processing. Seven commercial cultivars and 103 hybrids were used, which were obtained from populations derived from their crossings. The experiment was conducted in augmented blocks, in which four agronomical traits (total mass, amount of commercial fruit, amount of noncommercial fruit, and average fruit mass) and seven physical-chemical traits (soluble solids, soluble solids:titratable acidity ratio, total sugars, total pectin, vigor, and internal and external coloration) were evaluated. For hybrid selection, the following indices were used: Mulamba and Mock (1978), Smith (1936), Hazel (1943), and genotype-ideotype, which selected 20% of the genotypes evaluated. The three indices selected about 9% of the hybrids. The selection of two experimental hybrids (89 and 495) and the use of selection indices resulted in larger estimates of selection gains. The Mulamba and Mock (1978), Smith (1936), and Hazel (1943) indices had the highest percentage of gains on selection, and are therefore recommended for the selection of strawberry clones.

      Rosacea fulminans or pyoderma faciale is a rare cutaneous disorder that usually affects women usually between the ages of 15-46. The disease is characterized by sudden onset of papules, pustules, cysts, and painful coalescing nodules with red-cyanotic centrofacial erythema. Although its etiology remains unknown, hormonal, immunological, and vascular factors have been reported. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment should minimize unsightly scars. We report a case of a 33-year-old female patient treated with traditional doses of doxycycline, with improvement of the lesions and regression of the condition in two months.

      Morbihan syndrome is a rare entity that more commonly affects women in the third or fourth decade of life. It is considered a special form of rosacea and its pathogenesis is not fully known. It is clinically characterized by the slow appearance of erythema and solid edemas on the upper portion of the face, with accentuation in the periorbital region, forehead, glabella, nose, and cheeks. We report the case of a patient presented with edema on the upper eyelid for a year. These findings suggested the diagnosis of Morbihan syndrome. We aim to report a rare, particularly refractory and chronic form of rosacea, which has received little attention in the literature.

      Growing incentives to control health care costs may cause accountable care organizations (ACOs) to reconsider how skin disease is best managed. Limited data have suggested that disease management by a primary care physician (PCP) may be less costly than seeing a specialist, though it is not clear if the same is true for the management of skin disease. This study assessed the cost of seeing a dermatologist versus a PCP for diagnosis of psoriasis and rosacea.

    • I have a naturopath and I'm currently on this exact diet. It has improved my skin tremendously. I went from a rosacea fulminans level to a slightly red patch level. I have also added other things such as supplements, CBD to promote healing and oil pulling/cleansing because I had severely dry skin. One addendum to the diet that is here is: cold pressed organic coconut oil is allowed and everything is organic (according to my naturopath).

    • First heard about the Autoimmune Protocol Diet from JennAdeleK (post no 4) and decided it is worthy of a post here. Jenn reports that using the AIP Diet has improved her rosacea by 85%. So what is the AIP Diet? Wikipedia hasn't a listing for this yet as of March 15, 2017.  Dr. Sara Gottfried says, "The Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) is a very restrictive diet that removes foods considered to be gut irritants. The AIP is a stricter version of the Paleo diet, which involves the elimination of grains, legumes, dairy, and processed foods. The AIP takes things a step (actually an entire staircase) further, and eliminates many foods which have been shown to potentially irritate and cause holes in the gut lining. The AIP is very difficult for many people to follow, but sometimes it’s temporarily necessary to fully heal a very leaky gut." So it is a very strict diet that most rosacea sufferers will never follow. Why is that? Since 1998 I have advocated the Rosacea Diet which simply explains that eating a high sugar/high carbohydrate diet triggers rosacea and very few can follow or even try this diet. The AIP Diet is even more strict, so the vast majority of rosacea sufferers will continue eating and drinking whatever they want and continue to look for a pill or topical that will control their rosacea. Changing a diet life style is extremely difficult for most rosacea sufferers.  Dr. Gottfried lists the food to avoid on her web site which is listed below for your convenience:  Foods eliminated on the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP) Diet: Grains - wheat, rice, corn, and others; and pseudograins (millet, amaranth, teff, etc.)
      Legumes – all beans including peanuts, black beans, pinto beans, hummus, etc.
      Dairy – all sources of dairy, even raw or fermented
      Nuts and seeds - all nuts and seeds including cashews, almonds, quinoa, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, seed-based spices, chocolate, coffee, etc.
      Eggs - especially the white part of the egg, which contains inflammatory proteins
      Nightshades - tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, tomatillos, eggplants, goji berries and several spices
      Industrial seed oils - pretty much all liquid oils, except for olive and avocado oils
      Processed foods - basically anything that comes out of a package
      Alcohol - it is well established that alcohol induces a leaky gut. [4]
      NSAIDs - Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen, aspirin, and naproxen, which cause holes to form in the gut and stomach linings. [5]
      Sugar, starches, fruits, yeasts, FODMAPs - Sweet, starchy, and yeast-containing foods can contribute to imbalances in the gut microflora (dysbiosis) by feeding unfavorable bacteria in the gut. They are best limited or restricted especially at first on the AIP. So give it a try if you are tough and see if this works to control your rosacea. I am confident that if you do try this for thirty days you will notice an incredible difference in your rosacea, without a doubt you will see improvement.  The latest theory on rosacea is that it is a disorder of the immune system where too many cathlecidins run amuck. There has been another theory that rosacea has something to do with the gut. You may want to be up to date about the latest theories on rosacea.  Yes, indeed, the AutoImmune Protocol Diet would probably help you if you actually can do it.   And we all know deep inside that rosacea is a result of our poor diet over a long time of abuse.

One is histamine, too much histamine in your blood that causes you to flush and blush, and it could be due to triggers, foods that contain histamines or 5-HT, which is the precursor to histamine, which comes in things like eggplant, avocado, bananas. So if you eat that every day, don’t. Once in a while is okay, but not every day.

    • Since rosacea makes skin sensitive and easily irritated, it’s important to do a small test on products to see how your skin reacts, says Dr. Wu. She suggests a patch test with new products. To do this, apply a small amount in front of your ear before bed. If there’s no redness or irritation when you wake up, apply it on the rest of your face. To seal in the most moisture, wash your face with lukewarm water (hot water can dry out your skin), then pat dry and apply your moisturizer.

    • This common skin issue is caused by dilated blood vessels and increased blood flow. The rush of blood and extra pressure underneath the surface can also make the skin feel itchy, hot, and tingly. “As you get older, the collagen that surrounds your blood vessels, which helps them be strong, starts to wear down,” says Baumann. “After a while, your blood vessels lose that ability to shrink back down, so they stay dilated." While those with fair complexions typically notice the flush more, even those with darker skin tones can get rosacea.

    • One of the physicians who serves on the RRDi Mac, Zoe Diana Draelos, MD, wrote, "Rosacea is probably a collection of many different diseases that are lumped together inappropriately." This statement is absolutely true. There are so many skin conditions that mimic rosacea that to differentiate them is quite the task for a dermatologist to accomplish. You may receive a diagnosis of rosacea but discover later you have a different skin condition/disease. Reports in RF have reflected such cases many times. The new phenotype diagnosis classification should improve diagnosis and treatment. A recent article reports the following: 

      "Facial erythema (the "red face") is a straightforward clinical finding, and it is evident even to the untrained eye; however, a red face does not represent a single cutaneous entity. It may be due to a plethora of distinct underlying conditions of varying severity, including rosacea, demodicosis, dermatomyositis, lupus erythematosus, allergic contact dermatitis, drug-induced erythema, and emotional blushing. In clinical practice, dermatologists do not encounter only one type of facial erythema but rather a number of different shades of red.

    • Related Articles Pharmacologic treatments for rosacea. Clin Dermatol. 2017 Mar - Apr;35(2):207-212 Authors: Layton AM Abstract
      Rosacea represents a common and chronic inflammatory skin disorder. Clinical features include transient and permanent erythema, inflammatory papules and pustules, phymatous changes, and ocular signs and symptoms. Rosacea is generally classified into four subtypes and one variant. Subtype 1, erythematotelangiectatic rosacea, includes clinical features of flushing and persistent central facial erythema with or without telangiectasia. Subtype 2, papulopustular rosacea, is characterized by persistent central facial erythema with transient papules or pustules or both on the central face. Subtype 3, phymatous rosacea, includes thickening of the skin with irregular surface nodularities and enlargement. Subtype 4, ocular rosacea, includes inflammation of different parts of the eye and eyelid. A variant, granulomatous rosacea, is noninflammatory and is characterized by hard, brown, yellow, or red cutaneous papules or nodules of uniform size. Patients may present with more than one subtype, and each individual characteristic may fluctuate. There is debate whether rosacea progresses from one subtype over time or subtypes represent discreet entities. Defining clinical presentation and improved understanding of pathophysiology has resulted in identification of novel treatment approaches. This contribution outlines a rationale for treatment, highlights an evidence-based approach with approved treatments, and considers novel developments and off-license therapy available.

      Patients with rosacea present a challenge to the dermatologist, as they typically possess sensitive skin, need facial Demodex and bacterial colonization control, exhibit vasomotor instability, require camouflaging of telangiectatic mats, and desire prescription treatment. Currently available pharmaceuticals are aimed at inflammation reduction, primarily with the use of topical and oral antibiotics. Recently, vasoconstrictor formulations have emerged, but these drugs have only a temporary effect and improve appearance without addressing the underlying cause, which remains largely unknown. Cosmeceuticals, including cleansers, moisturizers, cosmetics, sunscreens, and anti-inflammatory botanicals, can be used as adjuvant therapies in combination with traditional therapies. This review explores the effective use of cosmeceuticals in the treatment of rosacea to enhance pharmaceutical outcomes and meet patient expectations in a more satisfactory manner.
