  2. Related ArticlesUse of proton pump inhibitors and risk of rosacea: A nationwide population-based study. J Dermatol. 2020 Jul 01;: Authors: Dai YX, Tai YH, Chen CC, Chang YT, Chen TJ, Chen MH Abstract Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) are commonly used drugs. However, little is known about the association between PPI use and rosacea. This study aimed to investigate the association between PPI use and rosacea risk. Patients with prior PPI therapy, including 1067 rosacea cases and 4268 matched controls, were identified from the National Health Insurance Research Database in Taiwan. The cumulative defined daily dose (cDDD) was used to quantify the PPI use. Logistic regression was used for the analyses. After adjustment for potential confounders, PPI use with cDDD of more than 365 was significantly associated with an increased risk of rosacea (odds ratio [OR], 1.54; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.10-2.15). Rosacea risk was significantly associated with PPI use of cDDD of more than 365 in women (OR, 1.62; 95% CI, 1.08-2.46) but not in men. Stratified by PPI indications, risk of rosacea was significantly associated with PPI use of cDDD of more than 365 for peptic ulcer (OR, 1.58; 95% CI, 1.12-2.21). In conclusion, prolonged PPI use was associated with an increased risk of rosacea, particularly in women and patients with peptic ulcers.

  3. Related ArticlesExcessive cleansing: an underestimating risk factor of rosacea in Chinese population. Arch Dermatol Res. 2020 Jun 27;: Authors: Li G, Wang B, Zhao Z, Shi W, Jian D, Xie H, Huang Y, Li J Abstract Appropriate skincare is essential in the prevention and management of rosacea. We sought to investigate whether cleansing habits, the initial step of skin care, would influence the onset and progression of rosacea and their associations with clinical features of rosacea in the Chinese population. We analyzed the daily cleansing habits data collected from 999 rosacea cases and 1010 skin-healthy controls from China. Overall, the high frequency of cleansing (more than once daily) (OR = 1.450) and the large amount of cleansers (> 5 pieces/year) (OR = 1.612) presented a positive correlation with rosacea occurring. The cleansing duration and types of cleansers appeared not to be correlated with the onset of rosacea in this study. Significant risk factors also included the deep cleansing habits, such as the overuse of cleansing tool (more than four times/week) (OR 2.179) and oil control and exfoliating behaviors via daily used products (OR 2.435), facial mask (OR 1.459) or projects in beauty salons (OR 2.688). The analysis of the clinical features of rosacea showed that patients who prefer deep cleansing were more prone to present an initial symptom of papule and pustule (OR 1.63-3.15). What is more, using daily exfoliating products presented a positive correlation with the progression of the symptoms from flushing to erythema (OR = 2.01), papule and pustule (OR = 2.28) and telangiectasis (OR = 2.14), and the affected areas from a single area to pan facial (OR = 1.650). In conclusion, excessive cleansing habits were substantial risk factors for the incidence and progression of rosacea in the Chinese population.

  4. Related ArticlesUpdate on the pathogenesis and management of ocular rosacea: an interdisciplinary review. Eur J Ophthalmol. 2020 Jun 25;:1120672120937252 Authors: Jabbehdari S, Memar OM, Caughlin B, Djalilian AR Abstract PURPOSE: Rosacea is one of the most common conditions affecting the ocular surface. The purpose of this review is to provide an update on the pathogenesis and treatment of rosacea based on the dermatology and ophthalmology literatures. METHODS: Literature searches were conducted for rosacea and ocular rosacea. Preference was given to systematic reviews, meta-analysis, case-controlled studies, and documented case reports while excluding poorly documented case studies and commentaries. The data were examined and independently analyzed by more than two of the authors. RESULTS: Rosacea is a complex inflammatory condition involving the pilosebaceous unit. Its underlying mechanism involves an interplay of the microbiome, innate immunity, adaptive immunity, environmental triggers, and neurovascular sensitivity. The latest classification of rosacea includes three dermatologic subgroups and a fourth subgroup, ocular rosacea. Ocular rosacea clinically displays many features that are analogous to the cutaneous disease, such as lid margin telangiectasia and phlyctenulosis. The role of environmental triggers in the exacerbation of ocular rosacea appears to be understudied. While lid hygiene and systemic treatment with tetracycline drugs remain the mainstay of treatment for ocular rosacea, newer dermatologic targets and therapies may have potential application for the eye disease. CONCLUSIONS: Ocular rosacea appears to embody many of the manifestation of the dermatologic disease. Hence, the basic pathophysiologic mechanisms of the ocular and cutaneous disease are likely to be shared. Better understanding of the ocular surface microbiome and the immunologic mechanisms, may lead to novel approaches in the management of ocular rosacea.

  8. Related Articles Value of GPSkin for the measurement of skin barrier impairment and for monitoring of rosacea treatment in daily practice. Skin Res Technol. 2020 Jun 23;: Authors: Logger JGM, Driessen RJB, de Jong EMGJ, van Erp PEJ Abstract BACKGROUND: Stratum corneum hydration (SCH) and transepidermal water loss (TEWL) provide useful information about skin barrier function. This study aimed to determine the value of GPSkin Pro, a new handheld device determining both SCH and TEWL, to measure skin barrier impairment and to monitor barrier function in rosacea in daily practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two pilots were performed. Pilot 1: in 27 healthy participants, GPSkin SCH and TEWL were compared to Aquaflux® and Epsilon® values at the forearm before and after skin barrier perturbation via tapestripping. Moreover, GPSkin values were measured at both cheeks without intervention. Pilot 2: in 16 rosacea patients, GPSkin measurements were performed at the forearm, and at both cheeks before and during anti-inflammatory treatment. They were compared to clinical symptoms and to GPSkin values from pilot 1. RESULTS: Pilot 1: after merging data from before and after tapestripping, a strong correlation was observed between GPSkin TEWL and Aquaflux® (Rs = 0.9256), and GPSkin SCH and Epsilon® (Rs = 0.8798). Pilot 2: SCH was significantly lower at the cheeks of rosacea patients compared to controls, with a normalizing trend during successful treatment. TEWL was comparable among patients and controls and did not change during treatment at all locations. CONCLUSION: The GPSkin determines TEWL and SCH accurately in healthy and impaired skin barrier state and can monitor skin barrier function in rosacea during treatment. The GPSkin device is much more practical compared to previous skin barrier tools when used in clinical practice. Its further validation in other inflammatory skin diseases is recommended.

  10. Related ArticlesTreating Inflammation in Rosacea: Current Options and Unmet Needs. J Drugs Dermatol. 2020 Jun 01;19(6):585-591 Authors: Tan J, Jackson JM Abstract Rosacea is a disease resulting from dysregulation of innate, adaptive, and neurovascular immune systems. Inflammatory pathways activated in rosacea can explain many of its signs and symptoms. Current treatments address some of these inflammatory processes, alleviating erythema and decreasing papules and pustules. However, for the majority of patients, complete clearance of these features is not currently achievable even with combination therapy. There is a need to address the spectrum of inflammatory processes involved in rosacea and for more efficacious agents with the goal of providing complete clearance for patients.

  11. Related ArticlesUnited States Stock Market Response to FDA Approval of New Dermatologic Drugs. J Drugs Dermatol. 2020 Jun 01;19(6):639-645 Authors: Mazmudar RS, Tripathi RT, Ezaldein HH, Scott JF Abstract BACKGROUND: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved several new dermatologic drugs in the last decade. The public response to their approval has not yet been evaluated. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the United States stock market response surrounding FDA approval of new dermatologic drugs between 2008 and 2018. METHODS: A list of 34 FDA approved dermatologic drugs for publicly traded companies was compiled from the CenterWatch New Dermatology Drugs List and the FDA Annual Reports on New Drugs. Company and stock market data was acquired from the Center for Research in Security Prices (CRSP) United States Stock database. Cumulative abnormal returns (CAR) were calculated as the difference between raw returns and expected value-weighted returns. Data analyses were performed using SAS 9.4 (Cary, NC). RESULTS: The average CAR for the 21-day window period surrounding FDA approval of new dermatologic drugs was +1.71%. Drugs approved for the treatment of hyperhidrosis (+17.7%), bacterial skin infections (+7.18%), and rosacea (+6.83%) added the most market value. LIMITATIONS: The market value added to private or internationally traded companies could not be assessed. CONCLUSION: FDA approval of dermatologic drugs generally has a positive market response. Information on market reaction may provide important insights for investors, pharmaceutical companies, and researchers. J Drugs Dermatol. 2020;19(6): doi:10.36849/JDD.2020.5033.

  13. Related ArticlesThe role of kallikreins in inflammatory skin disorders and their potential as therapeutic targets. Crit Rev Clin Lab Sci. 2020 Jun 22;:1-16 Authors: Di Paolo CT, Diamandis EP, Prassas I Abstract The skin is a vital organ of the human body, serving numerous protective and functional roles that are essential for survival. Residing in the epidermis are various epidermal proteases responsible for the establishment and regulation of barrier function. The human tissue kallikrein-related peptidase family conserves homeostasis of the skin barrier through their roles in desquamation, antimicrobial defense, innate immune response, and barrier maintenance. The activity of kallikreins is tightly regulated and dysregulation of kallikrein activity is seen to contribute to the formation of several inflammatory skin disorders. This review highlights the roles of kallikreins in skin homeostasis and pathologies. Due to their part in these skin disorders, inhibitors of the skin kallikreins have become attractive therapeutics. Over the past few years, both natural and synthetic inhibitors of several kallikreins have been identified and are undergoing further development as treatments to restore compromised barrier function. This review summarizes the kallikrein inhibitors under development for this purpose. These inhibitors remain promising therapeutics in cases of severe skin inflammation not well managed by current therapies. PMID: 32568598 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] {url} = URL to article
  14. Related ArticlesRosacea Treatment Satisfaction: Matching Adjusted Indirect Treatment Comparison Analysis of Metronidazole Gel or Cream vs Azelaic Acid Foam. J Drugs Dermatol. 2020 Mar 01;19(3):295-304 Authors: Williamson T, LaRose A, Cameron J, Lott J, Eaddy M, Hopson S, Shih HC, Tennant LT Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess differences in patient-reported treatment side effects and concerns associated with azelaic acid 15% foam (AAF) vs metronidazole cream (MC) and metronidazole gel (MG). METHODS: This study used matching-adjusted indirect comparison (MAIC) to compare patient-reported outcomes from survey data evaluating rosacea treatments. Outcomes of interest included percentages of patients reporting concerns and side effects and measures of importance of the concerns and tolerability of the side effects. Patients in each analysis (MG vs AAF and MC vs AAF) were matched using stabilized inverse propensity scores. RESULTS: When compared to AAF, MG-treated patients more frequently reported concerns with treatment efficacy (54% vs 4%), application (7% vs 3%), and treatment side effects. MC-treated patients more frequently reported concerns with treatment efficacy (61% vs 5%) and dryness (8% vs 5%). AAF-treated patients more frequently reported concerns with cost of treatment compared with MG (7% vs 1%) and MC (9% vs 4%). Among patients reporting concerns, level of importance associated with these concerns was similar for AAF-treated patients compared with MG- and MC-treated patients. When compared to AAF-treated patients, MG-treated patients more frequently reported side effects of dryness (26% vs 15%) and uneven skin tone (3% vs 0%), and MC-treated patients more frequently reported side effects of burning (7% vs 3%), itching (7% vs 5%), and redness (7% vs 5%). MG- and MC-treated patients indicated greater intolerance for reported side effects than AAF-treated patients. CONCLUSIONS: MG- and MC-treated patients more frequently reported treatment concerns and side effects than AAF-treated patients, and tolerability of those side effects was higher for patients treated with AAF. While treatment cost is a more frequent concern in patients treated with AAF, these patients less frequently reported concerns with treatment efficacy and reported similar or greater tolerance to side effects than patients treated with either MC or MG.

  15. Related ArticlesEvaluation of a simple image-based tool to quantify facial erythema in rosacea during treatment. Skin Res Technol. 2020 Jun 14;: Authors: Logger JGM, de Jong EMGJ, Driessen RJB, van Erp PEJ Abstract BACKGROUND: Facial erythema is a common symptom in rosacea. To overcome subjectivity in scoring erythema severity, objective redness quantification is desirable. This study evaluated an image-based erythema quantification tool to monitor facial erythema in rosacea patients during treatment and compared these values to clinical scores. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-one rosacea patients were treated with topical ivermectin for 16 weeks. Clinical erythema scores and clinical photographs were taken at week 0, 6, 16 and 28. Using ImageJ, RGB images were split into red, green and blue channels to measure the green/red ratio of lesional skin compared with a green sticker. With CIELAB colour space, a* (indicating colour from green to red) of a lesional and non-lesional facial site was measured, calculating ∆a*. Interobserver concordance and correlation between quantitative and clinical erythema values were determined. RESULTS: Treatment resulted in reduction of clinical erythema scores. No significant changes in red/green ratios were measured. Lesional a* and ∆a* significantly decreased from baseline to week 16 and 28 (P < .05). A weak correlation existed between clinical scores and lesional a* (Rs = 0.37), and between clinical scores and ∆a* (Rs = 0.30), with a clear trend towards higher a* and ∆a* for higher clinical scores. Interobserver correlation was high (R2 = 0.82). CONCLUSION: ImageJ is a simple, rapid, objective and reproducible tool to monitor erythema in rosacea patients during treatment. The photographs allow retrospective analysis, evaluation of large and small lesions, and discrimination of subtle redness differences. We recommend using lesional a* to monitor erythema of inflammatory dermatoses in clinical practice. PMID: 32537843 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] {url} = URL to article

Br J Dermatol. 2020 Jun 13;: Authors: Wang R, Farhat M, Na J, Li R, Wu Y Abstract Rosacea is a common inflammatory skin disease, but its pathophysiology is still unclear. Several microorganisms, including Cutibacterium acnes, Demodex spp. and Staphylococcus epidermidis, have been suggested to play roles in its pathogenesis. However, it is suspected that the community of microorganisms in and on the skin, rather than a single species, plays a more causative role in the disease. Our study aims to characterize and compare the skin bacterial and fungal microbiome in rosacea patients and healthy controls. PMID: 32533846 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] {url} = URL to article

Dermatol Ther. 2020 Jun 12;:e13824 Authors: Bonamonte D, De Marco A, Giuffrida R, Conforti C, Barlusconi C, Foti C, Romita P Abstract Topical antibiotic therapy is a central component of patient management for several skin conditions, including acne, hidradenitis suppurativa, rosacea, impetigo or other superinfected dermatitis, prevention of wound infections. Moreover, particular situations, such as skin diseases of bacterial origin in pregnancy and infants often warrant topical therapy. However, the occurrence of local delayed hypersensitivity reactions and the rising rate of antibiotic resistance are becoming great challenges faced by many dermatologists today. This narrative review provides an overview of the main topical antibiotics used in dermatology, focusing on their clinical role in the most common dermatological indications.

  19. Related ArticlesRed scrotum syndrome: An update on clinicopathological features, pathogenesis, diagnosis and management. J Am Acad Dermatol. 2020 Jun 01;: Authors: Khalil S, Kurban M, Abbas O Abstract The genital skin may be affected by a variety of dermatoses, be it inflammatory, infectious, malignant, idiopathic or others. The Red Scrotum Syndrome is characterized by persistent erythema of the scrotum associated with a burning sensation, hyperalgesia, and itching. Its cause is unknown but proposed mechanisms include rebound vasodilation following prolonged topical corticosteroid use and localized erythromelalgia. It is a chronic condition and treatment is often difficult. In this paper, we review the etiology, the physical and histopathological findings, and the management of this condition. We also describe related conditions such as Red Scalp Syndrome, Red Ear Syndrome, and Red Vulva Syndrome. Finally, we summarize the different cases reported in the literature and discuss the features that help in the differentiation of red scrotum syndrome from its mimickers.

  20. Related ArticlesStatPearls Book. 2020 01 Authors: Abstract Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory disease that presents with recurrent flushing, erythema, telangiectasia, papules, or pustules on nose, chin, cheeks, and forehead. There are four clinical subtypes of rosacea based on the predominant signs and symptoms: erythematotelangiectatic, papulopustular, phymatous, and ocular. The subtypes are not mutually exclusive. Patients can present with features of multiple subtypes, and the predominant features and areas of involvement can change over time. Fifty to seventy-five percent of patients with rosacea have eye involvement with symptoms including dryness, redness, tearing, tingling/burning sensation, foreign-body sensation, light sensitivity, and blurred vision. In addition to the skin and eye symptoms, rosacea can cause anxiety, embarrassment, and depression and can have a significant impact on the quality of life. Although usually limited to the skin, an association of rosacea with systemic comorbidities such as neurologic diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, and cardiovascular diseases has been reported.[1][2][3][4] PMID: 32491506 {url} = URL to article

  22. Related ArticlesStudy of Clinical Profile of Patients Presenting with Topical Steroid-Induced Facial Dermatosis to a Tertiary Care Hospital. Indian Dermatol Online J. 2020 Mar-Apr;11(2):208-211 Authors: Jain S, Mohapatra L, Mohanty P, Jena S, Behera B Abstract Background: Topical corticosteroids (TCs) are widely used for various indications in dermatology. However, these can cause a plethora of symptoms if overused or abused. Topical steroid damaged face is a relatively new entity which was described in 2008. TC abuse cause a myriad of side effects viz, erythema, telangiectasia, acne, acneiform eruption, hyper/hypopigmentation, rosacea, and photosensitivity when used inappropriately. Aim: The aim of the study was to ascertain the prevalence, demographics, and clinical presentations of TC abuse on faceamong our population. Materials and Methods: This was a cross-sectional study performed at dermatology department of a tertiary care teaching hospitallocated in eastern India for 1 year. All patients with facial dermatoses attending the outpatient department were asked about use of TC in recent past and those with positive history were included. A detailed clinical evaluation was undertaken and various demographic and clinical data were recorded. Results: A total of 316 patients (53 males, 263 females) presented with topical steroid-induced facial dermatoses during the entire study period. Majority of them used these agents on suggestion of close friends and relatives, pharmacists, television commercials, and doctors. Mometasone in the form "No-Scar" preparation was the most commonly abused topical steroid in our study. The most common side effects encountered were steroid-induced acne (45.2%) or flare of pre-existing acne followed by erythema and telangiectasia (21.2%), hypertrichosis (6.6%), rosacea (2.2%), and atrophy (1.5%). The most common reason for abusing TC was to get a fairer skin tone. Conclusion: Our study reports the clinical patterns of TC abused facial dermatoses. The fantasy to get a fairer skin among the people of our country has led to the abuse of topical corticosteroids. We conducted this study to create awareness among these patients about the dreadful effects of steroid misuse. PMID: 32477980 [PubMed] {url} = URL to article
  23. Related ArticlesOut of the Blue: A Case of Blue Subungual Discoloration Associated with Prolonged Tetracycline Use. Cureus. 2020 Apr 24;12(4):e7810 Authors: Ahmad Y, Boutros H, Hanna K Abstract Tetracycline derivatives are antibiotics such as minocycline and doxycycline that have been commonly utilized for inflammatory dermatological conditions such as acne and rosacea. Hyperpigmentation of the skin, nails, thyroid, oral mucosa, teeth, and bones is a known but rare side effect of prolonged tetracycline use. The hyperpigmentation typically takes months to years to develop. There may also be residual changes to the skin after discontinuation of the medication. For this reason, the time tetracyclines are used should be minimized and patients should be monitored for the skin findings. Subungual discoloration carries a broad differential including infectious, inflammatory, metabolic, malignant or systemic diseases. Knowledge of this side effect is crucial in order to avoid unnecessary testing in determining the etiology of the subungual discoloration. We report on a case of a patient who has been on long-term minocycline use for adult acne management. He was initially on minocycline for six years, but due to minocycline-induced hyperpigmentation of his ears and fingernails, he had switched to doxycycline. One year later, the skin hyperpigmentation of the ears regressed; however, the blue subungual hyperpigmentation of his hands progressively become more prominent without any other significant symptoms.

J Dtsch Dermatol Ges. 2020 May 29;: Authors: Hoepfner A, Marsela E, Clanner-Engelshofen BM, Horvath ON, Sardy M, French LE, Reinholz M Abstract BACKGROUND: Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory cutaneous disorder affecting nearly 5.5 % of the adult population. Our aim was to evaluate the prevalence and epidemiology of rosacea and perioral dermatitis (POD) in an ambulatory care setting. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed medical data of patients with a confirmed diagnosis of rosacea or perioral dermatitis (POD) presenting at our university hospital outpatient clinic during a 3-year period. RESULTS: Out of 1032 patients, 81.5 % were diagnosed with rosacea and 18.5 % with POD. Overall prevalence was 1.4 % for rosacea and 0.3 % for POD. 69.3 % of the analyzed patients were female. Overall mean age was 49.3 ± 7.7 (1-92) years; the women's average age was less than the men's. Patients with POD were younger and predominantly female, whereas patients with phymatous rosacea were older and predominantly male. The most common phenotypes were papulopustular rosacea (68.4 %), erythematotelangiectatic rosacea (22.5 %), and phymatous rosacea (8.0 %). Special forms of rosacea were diagnosed in 15.8 % of the patients; the most frequent were ocular rosacea (6.9 %) and steroid-induced rosacea (5.4 %). CONCLUSIONS: The large patient cohort analyzed in our study provides a good estimate of the frequency of the rosacea subtypes, special forms and of perioral dermatitis in a hospital-based outpatient care setting.
