Survey Finds that Rosacea Flare-Ups Are Common but Can Be Controlled

Although rosacea flare-ups are a common aspect of rosacea, patients are able to successfully control them with medication and by avoiding factors that aggravate their condition, according to a recent survey by the National Rosacea Society.

In the survey of 2,083 rosacea patients on the nature of flare-ups -- the reappearance or increased intensity of symptoms -- 32 percent said they experienced flare-ups frequently, while 55 percent said they experienced them occasionally and 12 percent reported they rarely or never experience this problem.

Survey Shows Lifestyle Changes Help Control Rosacea Flare-Ups

Altering your lifestyle to reduce or eliminate rosacea tripwires helps effectively control rosacea, according to a survey of 1,221 sufferers conducted by the National Rosacea Society.

Rosacea Takes Emotional Toll but Many Learn How to Cope

In addition to its physical effects, rosacea often casts a dreary spell on one's emotional well-being, according to a survey of rosacea patients by the National Rosacea Society. Fortunately, most patients said they are able to overcome these drawbacks through effective treatment and coping techniques.

Medical Conditions May Cause Flare-ups

Coming down with a cold or suffering through allergies this spring may be bad enough. Making matters worse, these conditions also cause rosacea flare-ups in many individuals, according to a recent survey on rosacea and other medical conditions by the National Rosacea Society.

Gallup Survey Shows Americans Still Largely Unaware of Rosacea

A recent Gallup survey found that 78 percent of Americans have no knowledge of rosacea, even though it has become increasingly widespread as the 76 million baby boomers enter their 30s, 40s and 50s -- the most dangerous years for first acquiring this chronic disorder.

Stress Control Reduces Flare-ups

While emotional stress is one of the most common tripwires for rosacea flare-ups, using stress reduction techniques may help reduce flare-ups for the great majority of rosacea sufferers, according to a recent survey of Rosacea Review readers.

In a survey of 602 rosacea patients, 88 percent said that their rosacea flares up when they are under emotional stress. Only 8 percent reported that stress was not a factor.

Men And Women Face Different Rosacea Symptoms

Male/Female Symptoms AreasUnlike most disorders, rosacea tends to affect men and women somewhat differently. According to a National Rosacea Society patient survey on the pattern of rosacea symptoms, women are more likely to experience symptoms on the cheeks and chin while men are more commonly affected on the nose.

Survey Shows Skin-Care Products, Ingredients May Aggravate Rosacea

Patients Who Follow Directions Achieve High Rate of Success

Rosacea sufferers who follow their doctor's orders regarding medical therapy and also make appropriate lifestyle modifications achieve a high rate of success in controlling their condition, according to a recent survey of Rosacea Review readers.

In the survey of 520 rosacea patients, 51 percent were under treatment with topical therapy alone and 34 percent were using a combination of both oral and topical antibiotics. Only 11 percent had been prescribed oral antibiotic tablets alone.

New Evidence Shows Rosacea May Be Linked to Heredity

A recent survey of 2,052 rosacea sufferers conducted by the National Rosacea Society provides evidence that this chronic skin condition runs in families, and that people of some nationalities are more likely than others to develop the disorder.

Nearly 40 percent of the respondents indicated they had a family member who also suffered from rosacea. For 27 percent, that family member was a parent. Eighteen percent had a brother or sister suffering from rosacea, while 13 percent had a grandparent with the disease and 16 percent had an aunt or uncle who was affected.
