    An Active Member is one who has posted within the last thirty days and has full access to the RRDi website. An Inactive Member is one who has not posted in the last thirty days and is therefore restricted to guest privlieges of access to the site until such time as the member becomes active again and full access to the site is restored. Any SUBSCRIBED member is not restricted to post within thirty days. Volunteer Active Members may waive the subscription fee. If you want to have your membership as a volunteer active member and have the subscription fee waived use the fill out this form. If you are an inactive member mention when filling out the form to volunteer that you are already registered with the RRDi but have become inactive so we can activate your membership. 

    Some rosaceans tend to center themselves on their own skin issues resulting in a spiral into reciprocal deep depression with a tendency to isolate themselves. Volunteering breaks this cycle. It forces a rosacean into seeing that there are others out there with even more severe cases of rosacea than what they are experiencing. Helping a fellow rosacea suffer is worth every effort you can muster. The satisfaction of volunteering as a rosacean for other rosaceans is only experienced if you take the step to offer yourself willingly as a RRDi volunteer rosacean. 

    Could you seriously consider volunteering for the RRDi? We are appealing to millennials to think about helping others with rosacea through our non profit organization so we can keep this web site on the internet with its wealth of information on rosacea. If some don't step up to the plate and volunteer the RRDi may eventually close up shop. Seriously, do you want to see this organization cease?  The statistics globally show that volunteering is dropping (read this post). Then read below why you are needed.

    If you would like to volunteer by simply joining our cause adding you name to our list and do nothing more that is the easiest way to volunteer. At the very least join the RRDi to increase our membership and if that is all you can do we understand and appreciate whatever you can do. Your email address is all we require to join. Our goal is to reach 10,000 members. And we are a grassroots, non profit organization. 

    If all you can do to volunteer is post on our website, that is probably the best thing you can do. Just post and show you care about other rosacea sufferers. Your experience with rosacea may inspire others to join our cause. Two Steps to Volunteer.

    Social Media
    Where have all the rosaceans gone? Social media. So, if you prefer Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit or any other social media rosacea PRIVATE group, why not join the RRDi and be a moderator for the RRDi Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Reddit groups?  That way you can still be in your favorite platform and be a volunteer for the RRDi. We need moderators for our RRDi social media rosacea groups as volunteers. Watch this 3 minute video below for more information:

    Mention which job you are volunteering for or create your own volunteer job and mention this in the appropriate box when applying.

    Another way to support is by purchasing our RRDi Tee Shirt, the Journal of the RRDi from Amazon or iUniverse which will help us continue its publication and may lead to some novel rosacea research. If you use Amazon why not check out our Amazon Affiliate Store using our shopping cart is another way to support our non profit. If you care to donate that would be appreciated.

    • 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).
