The logo of the RRDi includes a butterfly because rosacea typically manifests itself in a facial butterfly formation. "Half a century ago, Edward Lorenz, SM ‘43, ScD ‘48, overthrew the idea of the clockwork universe with his ground-breaking research on chaos."  Lorenz created an analogy with the flapping wings of a butterfly what beautifully describes how the initial conditions may create an effect not imagined. What are the initial conditions with the result in rosacea chaos?

Victor Gabriel's Butterfly Effect in Acne and Rosacea
A paper written in 2018 by Victor Gabriel, et al., discusses the '
