OBJECTIVE: To retrospectively analyze the factors influencing the treatment of rosacea patients with regular follow-up by self-management support in the new media chronic disease management model, to explore the effect of self-management support and to provide an objective basis for clinical application.

METHODS: Female patients with rosacea who were regularly followed up for more than 6 months at the rosacea follow-up clinic of the Department of Dermatology, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, from March 2022 to June 2023, with erythema and capillary dilation as the main clinical phenotype, met the rosacea diagnostic criteria of the American Rosacea Expert Committee 2017 edition, and received medications recommended by the Chinese Rosacea Treatment Guidelines (2021 edition). A total of 125 patients were treated with combined photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT), and the patients were divided into a standardized group (CEA<1, IGA<1) and a non-standardized group (CEA≥1, IGA≥1) based on significant rosacea efficacy (CEA<1, IGA<1) within 6 months. The age, gender, education level, duration of rosacea, treatment regimen, education intensity, CEA, and IGA baseline data were compared between the two groups, and logistic regression analysis was performed to analyze the factors influencing the significant efficacy of rosacea.

RESULTS: There was a significant difference in the mean length of education between the two groups (P<0.05), and the differences between the rest of the baseline information of the two groups were not statistically significant (P>0.05). Logistic regression analysis showed that the variable that significantly influenced the efficacy of treatment was the mean length of education (≥130.5 min/month), and the intensity of education was significantly associated with the efficacy of treatment.

CONCLUSION: Self-management support in the new media chronic disease management model has a positive impact on the treatment of rosacea patients.
