    If you would like to volunteer by simply joining our cause adding you name to our list and do nothing more that is the easiest way to volunteer. At the very least join the RRDi to increase our membership and if that is all you can do we understand and appreciate whatever you can do.

    Another way is to purchase our Journal of the RRDi from Amazon or iUniverse which will help us continue its publication and lead to some novel rosacea research. If you care to donate that would be appreciated.

    We would like to offer each author reimbursement if we publish the article in the next Journal of the RRDi. Please donate if you would like to help us reach this goal. If you want to volunteer to be on the Journal of the RRDi publication team as an editor, author, proofreader, or any other job please join our cause and state in the comment box you want to join the Journal Publication Team.

    Volunteers are needed to recruit more members, for fund raising, writers for the newsletter or other publications, accounting and bookeeping, webmasters, lawyers and just about anything you can come up with to help make the charter of this institute a reality. Why not suggest what you might volunteer to do when you join the RRDi, and in the application to become a corporate member there is a place to add a comment what your volunteer skills are.

    Volunteers are needed for the public relations committee or to write requests for donations to major corporations in our Funding Committee. Please join and mention you would like to help on the Funding Committee or for Public Relations. Or you can personally write a fund raiser letter using this sample letter.

    To Volunteer as a Writer please join. Check our announcements for special needs. Writers, editors, graphic artists and proof readers are needed! We have the ability to turn your post into an article. Why not post your article?

    • 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.
