    We need volunteers. Volunteering has been shown to improve not only your health but also your hope. 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? The founder/director is 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. 

    Volunteers are needed to recruit more members, for fund raising, public relations, writers to write posts on our member forum, editors for the newsletter, accounting/book keeping, webmasters, forum moderators, board members, researchers, Google AdWords expert, and grant writers. If you have a skill not mentioned, let us know. Why not suggest what you might volunteer to do when you join the RRDi, and in the application to become a corporate member there is a place to add a comment what your volunteer skills are. If you have questions, contact us. If you want to know what will volunteering do for you (?), skip down to the subheading, What's in it for me below

    We would like to offer each author reimbursement if we publish the article in the next Journal of the RRDi.  If you want to volunteer to be on the publication team as an editor, author, proofreader, or any other job please join our cause and state in the comment box you want to join the Journal Publication Team.

    Volunteers are needed for the public relations committee or to write requests for donations to major corporations in our Funding Committee. Please join and mention you would like to help on the Funding Committee or for Public Relations. Or you can personally write a fund raiser letter using this sample letter.

    To Volunteer as a Writer please join. Check our announcements for special needs. Writers, editors, graphic artists and proof readers are needed! We have the ability to turn your post into an article. Why not post your article?

    • Subungal Discoloration with Hemotoma or Disease A subungal discoloration usually is associated with a hematoma on finger or toe nails. [1] There are numerous images associated showing this available in a google search. However, subungal discoloration can be associated with disease. "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. Knowledge of this side effect is crucial in order to avoid unnecessary testing in determining the etiology of the subungual discoloration." [2] Subungal Discoloration with Tetracycline Long Term Use The authors of one paper on this subject explain that it is important to let patients know that long term use of tetracyclines, i.e., doxycycline, minocycline, for rosacea this subungal discoloration may be one of the side effects and risks. The report states, "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."
