INTRODUCTION: Rosacea is a chronic condition involving inflammation leading to a diminished skin barrier function in sebaceous gland-rich facial skin. The current algorithm represents part II of a series investigating similar topics associated with preventing, treating, and maintaining rosacea, including ceramides-containing skincare.

METHODS: The consensus process consisted of a modified Delphi technique. A previously published review by the US Cutaneous Rosacea Outcomes (USCRO) group on skin barrier deficiency in rosacea and the integration of over-the-counter (OTC) products and skincare recommended for rosacea treatment and maintenance informed the development of the current algorithm. The selected information from the literature searches, coupled with the USCRO group's opinion and experience, was used to develop, discuss, and reach a consensus on an evidence-based clinical treatment and maintenance algorithm focusing on rosacea phenotypes.

RESULTS: The algorithm includes foundational measures to be taken by all patients with rosacea and rosacea-prone skin. These measures include education, behavioral modifications, avoidance of triggers and skin irritants, preventative skincare, and sun avoidance and sunscreen use. The algorithm further describes how assessment of skin condition and grading of cutaneous rosacea should take place during treatment and maintenance while the preventative measures continue.

CONCLUSIONS: Prescription medications combined with gentle cleansers, moisturizers, and sunscreen support a successful rosacea therapy. J Drugs Dermatol. 2022;21:9(Suppl 1):s3-10.
