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.

Dry Skin Found Common among Rosacea Sufferers

In addition to the visible symptoms of rosacea, many sufferers report yet another problem -- dry skin, which often results in itching, burning and stinging sensations.

Survey Shows Rosacea Symptoms Often Differ in Men and Women

The first large-scale survey of rosacea symptoms was conducted by the National Rosacea Society, defining the relative frequency of various conditions that may be caused by the disorder as well as some distinct differences in the typical pattern of symptoms experienced by men and women respectively.

Survey Reports Sun Season Hardest on Rosacea Symptoms

With spring blossoming and summer approaching, a majority of rosacea sufferers may find they must take special precautions to avoid flare-ups, according to a survey by the National Rosacea Society.

In the survey of more than 700 rosacea sufferers, 71 percent said their condition was affected by changes in seasons. Of all the seasons, summer was found the hardest to endure by most, with 57 percent of the respondents reporting that their symptoms are at their worst during this time of year.
