Rosacea Sufferers, Take Heart -- You Are Not Alone

More than 13 million Americans are now believed to suffer from rosacea, yet few are aware that the redness, bumps and pimples are not just a temporary complexion problem but rather a chronic medical condition that tends to grow worse without medical treatment. During Awareness Month in March, the National Rosacea Society focuses on educating the public about this conspicuous and embarrassing disorder and dispelling the myths and misconceptions surrounding it.

Many rosacea sufferers grow up with a complexion that initially is very fine. But when rosacea strikes, being accustomed to compliments on a "peaches and cream" complexion can make the relentless march of unsightly redness, pimples and excess tissue growth especially shocking.
