    rrdi_rules.pngrrdiLogo384x64.jpg.3cd1bd79f5d066075bdd9

    1. RRDi members (including guests) must be polite and respectful to fellow members taking into consideration the individual fellow member's religious, ethical, and cultural values, as well as age, race and sex. The institute determines what is polite and respectful and may or may not give warnings for violating this rule. Removal from the membership is possible for violating this rule. It is a privilege to be a member of the RRDi and not a right.

    2. To be a legal corporate voting member a name, mailing address, two email addresses, and a statement of whether the member is a rosacean or not a rosacean is required. Non voting members are only required to provide an email address.

    3. Members (including guests) may not profit from the institute; however, any Medical Advisory Consultants (or Committee) member or any other member may be compensated for services rendered to the institute.

    4. Members (including guests) who sell items or services for rosacea may comment on a treatment, product, book or service sold by the member when another member asks for information. However, the institute may at any time stop the discussion, delete the posts or ban the member at the sole discretion of the institute. Warnings may or may not be given to the member by the institute. Profiting from contacts of fellow members through the institute is not the purpose of this non profit institute. However, information is acceptable to post when asked and appropriate comments are allowed subject to the approval by the institute. The RRDi determines if the post is appropriate or not and you agree to this decision.

    5. Members should state if they have a diagnosis of rosacea from a physician and failure to discuss this may be grounds for dismissal as a member. The institute needs to know which voting members are rosaceans to determine the percentage of voting members who have a diagnosis of rosacea from a physician and which voting members are not rosacea sufferers. Non voting members are also required to state if they have a diagnosis of rosacea if another member inquires.  

    6. Privacy is of concern to the institute. Names, mailing and email addresses are not given out to the public or to fellow members by the institute. Your public profile is available to anyone to view but only shows your location, country, and whether you are a rosacean if you put data into these public profile boxes. Your personal profile like first and last name, etc., is never shown to the public and only RRDi staff members can view your personal profile. You agree to allow your public profile to be shown. Members should not release names, mailing or email addresses of fellow members if you are aware of the personal contact information of a fellow member without the consent of the fellow member. A Privacy Policy is available for the public. Members who donate to the institute will be listed with their name and the amount unless the donor requests anonymity. If you want to remain anonymous please let the institute know when you donate otherwise your name will be posted without any address, phone, or email address.

    7. Members (including guests) will adhere, agree to and obey the Guidelines, Charter, Articles of Incorporation, the Bylaws, the Conflict of Interest Policy and these Rules of the Institute. Violation of any of these rules may be grounds for being removed as a corporate voting member or non voting member. You may view these documents by request or check the site index.

    8. A 'rosacean' is a rosacea sufferer. 'Institute' refers to the RRDi. RRDi refers to the Rosacea Research & Development Institute. You accept these terms.

    9. Guests are NOT allowed to post for free since the end of June 2022 in the Guest Forum and are required to donate for a subscription and certain areas of the website open to guests for free and guests are never allowed to post. All these rules apply to registered members and guests who are not registering an email (or account) and post in our Guest Forum or member areas of our website. To remain as an active member requires a donation with a subscription of at least a minimum of $2/month donation (or $1/month for three or more months subscription). After thirty days a subscribed registered member becomes an inactive member who has stopped donating for a subscription or has not posted in the last thirty days (whichever comes first) and has the same access to our website as a guest who is not allowed in the member areas of our website. An inactive member may be an active member by simply logging into their registered account and subscribing for a minimum of $2/month donation (or $1/month for three or more months subscription). Subscribers may opt for a discounted ($1/month) three, six, twelve, hundred twenty month or a lifetime donation subscription plan. Volunteers may request a waived subscription.

       10.  The Rules of the Institute may be changed at any time at the sole discretion of the institute.

    • Expert Rev Clin Immunol. 2022 Sep 22. doi: 10.1080/1744666X.2022.2128334. Online ahead of print. ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: : Recent advances in the understanding of the pathophysiology of rosacea have led to increased focus on the disease's immunologic etiology and to the development of immunologically based treatments. With many patients suffering from incomplete control, addressing the immune components of the disease process may provide a more effective treatment option for rosacea patients that may improve quality of life. AREAS COVERED: : This review will provide a brief overview of the pathophysiology or rosacea, as well as specific immunologic contributions to the disease state. Current standard-of-care treatments will be described, including anti-parasitic, anti-inflammatory agents, and antibiotics. Emphasis will be placed on treatments that target the immune components of the disease process. EXPERT OPINION: : Rosacea remains a difficult dermatologic disease to treat, partially due to an incomplete understanding of the disease pathophysiology. The immune pathophysiology of rosacea, particularly the key role of inflammation, has been clarified over the past decade. Identification of specific molecules, including cytokines and nuclear transcription factors, may allow for the development of targeted rosacea-specific biologic and topical treatments. However, medication nonadherence is a limiting factor to achieving symptomatic control among rosacea patients. Focusing on the development of oral or injectable forms of therapy may circumvent poor adherence. PMID:36137266 | DOI:10.1080/1744666X.2022.2128334 {url} = URL to article

    • Cureus. 2022 Sep 3;14(9):e28726. doi: 10.7759/cureus.28726. eCollection 2022 Sep. ABSTRACT Facial hypervascularity is a condition that manifests as erythema and edema caused by aberrant blood vessels. Often, the cause of these abnormal blood vessels can be attributed to previous trauma or vascular conditions such as rosacea, although sometimes the cause is unknown. Pulsed dye laser (PDL) can be an effective treatment even when the cause is unknown. We present a case of a 24-year-old male presenting with intermittent swelling, redness, and throbbing sensations of the nose and cheeks for the past five years. Physical examination was notable for prominent erythema and swelling of the nasal skin and mild erythema on the cheeks. He underwent treatment with PDL and achieved complete resolution of his symptoms. This case illustrates the effectiveness of PDL in the treatment of facial hypervascularity.

    • J Dtsch Dermatol Ges. 2022 Sep 13. doi: 10.1111/ddg.14879. Online ahead of print. ABSTRACT This guideline aims to improve the efficiency and safety of lasers and optical radiation sources with similar effects (especially IPL). Laser therapy of skin lesions with an increased amount of melanocytes should be performed with caution. Laser treatment of pigmented melanocytic nevi is not recommended. The guideline contains recommendations regarding the treatment of lentigines and café-au-lait spots, non-pigmented dermal nevi, Becker nevus, nevus of Ota/Hori/Ito and melasma. Further recommendations focus on the treatment of skin lesions without an increased amount of melanocytes (ephelides, postinflammatory hyperpigmentation including berloque dermatitis, seborrheic keratoses, traumatic/decorative tattoos and metallic deposits), hypopigmentation (vitiligo), benign non-pigmented neoplasms (fibrous papule of the nose, nevus sebaceus, epidermal nevus, neurofibroma, sebaceous gland hyperplasia, syringoma, xanthelasma palpebrarum), inflammatory dermatoses (acne papulopustulosa/conglobata, acne inversa, granuloma faciale, lichen sclerosus, lupus erythematosus, psoriasis vulgaris, rosacea, rhinophyma), wrinkles/dermatochalasis/striae, hypertrichosis, scars (atrophic, hypertrophic; keloids, burn/scald scars), laser-assisted skin healing, onychomycosis, precancerous lesions and malignant tumors (actinic keratoses/field cancerization, cheilitis actinica, basal cell carcinoma), vascular skin lesions (angiokeratoma, angioma, hemangioma, malformation, spider veins, granuloma telangiectaticum (pyogenic granuloma), rubeosis (erythrosis interfollicularis colli, ulerythema ophryogenes), nevus flammeus, telangiectasias and Osler's disease (hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia) and viral skin lesions (condylomata acuminata, mollusca contagiosa, verrucae planae juveniles/vulgares/ verrucae palmares et plantares).
