  2. "Rosacea is a chronic cutaneous condition characterized by flushing and persistent erythema of the central face. The disease may also feature telangiectasias, papules, pustules, phymatous changes, and ocular involvement. Until recently, rosacea therapy has empirically targeted the signs and symptoms of the disease because the details of its pathophysiology were poorly understood. However, the last decade has brought significant advances in the understanding of the molecular pathology of rosacea, advances that are informing the development of novel treatments and elucidating the mode of action

  5. Laura Kopec has resigned from the RRDi MAC. We will miss Laura and her insight into natural treatments for rosacea.
  6. Mistica experimented with brimonidine before the release of Mirvaso. Here is what she reports: "I would urge great caution to anyone who contemplates trying this medication. I am a brimonidine victim. I ended up in the ER twice with the most horrific rebound flushing. I had nose bleeds, split lips and terrible flushing as the blood surged through my face looking for the weakest route. It would dart about, first engorging the side of my nose, then upper lip area, then the cheek, etc. I have seen another post here where someone else experienced this phenomenon, although in lesser form

  9. A new paper out of Russia was released that mentions Episofit A (Episoft A by noreva), a French drug developed by the Laboratory of Evolutionary Dermatology, that improves rosacea by means of a new direction in skin care - corneotherapy. We have not been able to find any other information on this new treatment for rosacea. Do any of the MAC Members have a comment on this new treatment or do any of our European MAC Members have any information that can shed light on this new treatment? For more information on the paper click here.
  10. A report listed on PubMed mentions Episoft A for severe skin conditions, including those with steroid rosacea which I have added this to the list of treatments. This treatment, a French topical, has been announced in a new clinical paper out of Russia which concludes that using a skin analyzer BIA (bioimpedance analysis) along with Episofit A, "the drug is highly effective means of the new direction in skin care - corneotherapy aimed to reconstruct and protect damaged stratum corneum." For more information on this article from Russia click here. The paper states the drug is "Episofit A" (
  11. A Consumer's Report article points out there is a shortage of tetracycline in the US. Tetracycline has been used for over fifty years to treat rosacea. The report concludes for those of you concerned about this shortage: Bottom line: If your doctor prescribes tetracycline and your local pharmacies can't fill the prescription, ask your doctor for a new prescription for a drug in the same class: doxycycline or minocycline. "Doxycycline has more or less taken over the market because of its availability, and because it's only taken twice a day," says Marvin M. Lipman, MD, Consumer Reports' ch

  16. Dr. Kanade Shinkai An article in Skin and Allergy News in discussing Mirvaso states, "Stopping the medication did cause a kind of tachyphylaxis seen with other alpha-adrenergics used to treat nasal or conjunctival congestion, where stopping the drug increased erythema or edema." The article quotes Dr. Shinkai [above] as stating: "I think the jury is still out" until more data become available on long-term use of brimonidine for erythema in rosacea. "However, I think this is a really exciting new development" because it adds to the few tools available for treatment, she said." htt
