Dermatol Clin. 2018 Apr;36(2):103-113

Authors: Oussedik E, Bourcier M, Tan J

Rosacea is a common and chronic skin disorder with substantial impact on a patients' quality of life. Its varying phenotypic features and facial localization can adversely affect the mental health and socialization of those affected. Although there are no curative interventions, certain therapies have greater effect in improving patient quality of life. This article summarizes the associated psychosocial implications of rosacea. Several skin disease and rosacea-specific quality-of-life measures and their application in clinical care and research studies are also summarized. The recognition and management of the psychosocial impact of rosacea is critical to improving patient outcomes.
