J Drugs Dermatol. 2022 Oct 1;21(10):1111-1118. doi: 10.36849/JDD.7010.


BACKGROUND: Rosacea is an inflammatory dermatosis with at least a ten percent prevalence reported among white adults. Rosacea occurs in nonwhite populations, but prevalence data is limited.

METHODS: Five dermatologists from Latin America (the panel) met virtually after completing a survey of their prescription and adjunctive therapy practices when managing Latin American patients with rosacea. Panel members were chosen based on their dermatology expertise in treating a range of skin phototypes. Survey results were reviewed and discussed, along with a review of published guidelines for rosacea treatment.

RESULTS: The panel addressed diagnostic challenges in richly pigmented skin individuals. Pathophysiology and treatment of rosacea were reviewed, with a primary focus on how to treat the skin barrier dysfunction in those affected, using prescription and over-the-counter measures.

CONCLUSIONS: Appropriate skincare is crucial for effective rosacea management. Cleansers and moisturizers with ingredients such as ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and niacinamide promote a healthy skin barrier, improving rosacea control. J Drugs Dermatol. 2022;21(10):1111-1118.  doi:10.36849/JDD.7010.
