    Transparency

    A fundamental principle in our charter states, "Sources of funding to the institute will be publicized including the name of the donor unless the donor requests anonymity. Expenses of the institute will be publicized down to the last cent, showing where all the spending went and for what purpose." So transparency (behavior) is at the core of our charter. 

    All funding expenses and donations will be reported on this page including exactly what was spent on each item, line by line. The names of all donors and the amount donated will be included, unless the donor requests anonymity. To make a donation click here.

    The RRDi reports all financial statements so that you can see where the money is coming from and where it is going. What other non profit organization for rosacea does this? Can you find all the financial reports for a non profit organization for rosacea from the time of its inception to the most recent report? We believe in transparency. From 2004 thru 2013 we went the extra mile and filed Form 990 Schedule A and Form EZ. However, since we receive donations less than $50,000 we are only required to fill out Form 990N. So from 2014 we file only Form 990N and include a Google Doc Spreadsheet of our financial report which you can review below.

      BACKGROUND: The epidemiologic association between alcohol and rosacea is unclear and inconsistent based on the previous cross-sectional or case-control studies.
      OBJECTIVE: We conducted a cohort study to determine the association between alcohol intake and the risk of rosacea in women.
      METHODS: A total of 82,737 women were included from the Nurses' Health Study II (1991-2005). Information on alcohol intake was collected every 4 years during follow-up. Information on history of clinician-diagnosed rosacea and year of diagnosis was collected in 2005.
      RESULTS: Over 14 years of follow-up, we identified 4945 cases of rosacea. Compared with never drinkers, increased alcohol intake was associated with a significantly increased risk of rosacea (Ptrend <.0001). The multivariate-adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) and confidence intervals (CIs) were 1.12 (95% CI 1.05-1.20) for alcohol intake of 1-4 g/day and 1.53 (1.26-1.84) for ≥30 g/day. The associations remained consistent across categories of smoking status. Further examination of types of alcoholic beverage consumed revealed that white wine (Ptrend <.0001) and liquor intake (Ptrend = .0006) were significantly associated with a higher risk of rosacea.
      LIMITATIONS: This was an epidemiologic study without examination into etiologic mechanisms.
      CONCLUSIONS: Alcohol intake was significantly associated with an increased risk of rosacea in women.

    • Related Articles Disseminated extrafacial rosacea with papulonecrotic lesions. J Dermatol Case Rep. 2016 Dec 31;10(4):68-72 Authors: Demitsu T, Tsukahara R, Umemoto N, Nakamura S, Nagashima K, Yamada T, Kakurai M, Tanaka Y, Kakehashi A, Miyata T Abstract
      BACKGROUND: Rosacea is a common skin disease and predominantly affects on the face of middle-aged women. It exceptionally occurs on the extrafacial areas such as ear, neck, axilla, and upper extremities, and has been reported as disseminated rosacea.
      MAIN OBSERVATION: A 40-year-old Japanese female presented with one-month history of erythematous skin eruption with burning sensation on the face, neck, and upper limbs. Physical examination showed rosacea-like eruption on the face as well as multiple papules disseminated on the neck, forearms, and hands. These extrafacial lesions demonstrated papulonecrotic appearance. Bilateral conjunctiva showed marked hyperemic which was consistent with ocular rosacea. Corneal opacity was also seen. Histology of the umbilicated papule on the neck revealed necrobiotic granulomas around the hair follicle with transepidermal elimination. Another tiny solid papule on the forearm suggesting early lesion also demonstrated necrobiosis with palisading granuloma but no transepidermal elimination. Systemic administration of minocycline and topical tacrolimus therapy promptly improved the skin lesions. Topical application of fluorometholone in temporary addition with levofloxacin improved ocular involvement 12 weeks after her 1st visit. The clinical course of the skin lesion and ocular symptoms mostly correlated. Then, the skin lesion and ocular symptoms often relapsed. Rosacea uncommonly associates with the extrafacial involvement as disseminated rosacea. The present case is characterized by the disseminated papulonecrotic lesions of the extrafacial areas histologically showing transepidermal elimination of necrobiotic granulomas.
      CONCLUSIONS: Dermatologists should recognize that papulonecrotic lesions of the neck and upper extremities might be extrafacial rosacea when the patient has rosacea on the face.

    • "I have one other suggestion. One of my patients finds that when she follows a strict sugar-free diet, her facial redness fades almost completely. But if she has so much as a chocolate biscuit, the redness flares up again the next day. There’s no evidence to back this up, but I’ve seen that it works for her. Why not try it?" How CAN I banish my embarrassing rosacea? DR MARTIN SCURR answers questions from readers, Martin Scurr, Daily Mail 
       
    • "Dermatologist Mara Weinstein says, "Rose hip oil is packed full of vitamins (vitamin A, vitamin C) and antioxidants. It has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce the redness associated with rosacea and acne-prone skin, which is sensitive skin. Just make sure that whatever formulation you pick up is noncomedogenic (doesn't clog pores)." Red in the face: What to do about rosacea, Ellen Warren, Chicago Tribune
