    RRDi Education Grants

    The RRDi has funded educational grants sponsored by Galderma. For more information click here.

    Rosaceans can make a difference in rosacea research by joining the RRDi as a corporate member. Please join. The RRDi is planning on doing some novel rosacea research. You can become involved with this volunteer movement of rosaceans making a difference in the direction of the research. Never underestimate the power of rosaceans volunteering. For example, you could volunteer as a grant writer (if you have no experience you could learn how). If you are a professional grant writer, or would like to learn how to write grants for rosacea research, please click here.

    Joel T. Bamford, M.D., wrote an article in the Journal of the RRDi entitled, "Is it possible for rosaceans to do research?" The answer to that question is joining our cause and making this possible. The RRDi is in the forefront of the medical digital revolution which you can be a part of. For more information click here.

    "However, as another important outcome, their analyses also highlighted the need for better-quality studies evaluating treatments for rosacea....The reviewers also found there were no randomized, controlled trials evaluating other treatments commonly used for rosacea, including doxycycline, minocycline, isotretinoin, laser therapy, erythromycin, dapsone and topical tretinoin." [1]

    According to Michael Detmar, M.D., in 2003, only one paper was published for every 144,000 rosacea patients in the United States, compared to a 1-to-11 ratio for melanoma and 1 to 4,900 for psoriasis. [Source]

    • Yes I know it's not rosacea but erythema (redness). I know there are so many conditions which look like rosacea but they are not but we do not know the underlying cause might correlate.it might be a co existing condition occurs with rosacea. I haven't done anything for it. It is slowly decreasing itself.
    • Apurva,  Might not be rosacea. Some conditions you may want to have your dermatologist rule out:  Erythromelalgia Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Faceii Pityriasis rosea There are probably a number of other possibilities to rule out since the list of skin conditions that look like rosacea keeps growing.  What are you treating your erythema with?   
    • has anyone noticed something experiencing this unusual condition with them? First time I have seen something like this and the thing is erythema is extended to arms and the redness is not causing any pain and itchiness and the startling thing is I get intense erythema on my right cheek than my left cheek and  the erythema on my right hand is more than the left hand. So I was observing, has right face erythema anything to do with right hand erythema? Does it have any connection in common?

    • Treatment of Rhinophyma With Surgical Excision and Amniotic Membrane. J Craniofac Surg. 2019 Jul;30(5):1563-1564 Authors: Yoo JJ, Thaller SR Abstract Rhinophyma is a phenotypic subtype of rosacea affecting the nose. It is characterized by phymatous changes, skin thickening/fibrosis, glandular hyperplasia, and chronic inflammation. Treatment of severe rhinophyma is predominantly surgical excision with closure by secondary intention. Amniotic membrane has been used to promote wound healing, fibrosis, and inflammation. In this case study, the authors present a 63-year-old male with longstanding rhinophyma treated with surgical excision with intraoperative placement of amniotic membrane.
