    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?

    • 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?
    • [Acne rosacea-a pedigree with ten cases]. Zhonghua Yi Xue Yi Chuan Xue Za Zhi. 2019 Jul 10;36(7):747 Authors: Xia R, Cao L, Fang L, Xiong H, Yang L PMID: 31302927 [PubMed - in process] {url} = URL to article
    • 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.

    • Difference in Vasoconstrictors: Oxymetazoline vs Brimonidine. J Dermatolog Treat. 2019 Jul 11;:1-23 Authors: Okwundu N, Cline A, Feldman SR Abstract OBJECTIVE: Topical oxymetazoline and brimonidine are the only medications approved for treating persistent facial erythema of rosacea. This review aims to investigate the efficacy, safety, pharmacodynamics, and pharmacokinetic properties of oxymetazoline and brimonidine. METHOD AND MATERIALS: Phase II and phase III clinical studies evaluating oxymetazoline and brimonidine were assessed to compare their efficacy and safety. RESULTS: In their respective phase III trials, both oxymetazoline and brimonidine met the primary efficacy outcome of having at least a 2-grade decrease from baseline on both the Clinician Erythema Assessment and the Subject Self-Assessment Scales compared to the vehicle control. Treatment related adverse events of oxymetazoline and brimonidine are most often mild and localized. CONCLUSION: Topical oxymetazoline and brimonidine are effective for the management of persistent facial erythema associated with rosacea with a few mild and localized adverse effects. Further long term research is imperative to further understand their long term effects. PMID: 31294643 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] {url} = URL to article
