RosaceaA Condition That Needs Special Care
Rosacea is one of the most challenging skin
diseases to manage. The more work that I do with this condition, the more I dont
understand. Patients complain of mis treatment from friends, relatives, and doctors.
Dermatologists need to be prominent in their support for research and improved
patient-focused care for rosacea. I hope that this supplement will fill a need. Each
contributor has provided a knowledgeable and thorough review of key aspects for care of
the rosacea patient. It is unlikely that any physician can support all aspects of therapy,
but it is important that we are all aware of what is available and where to get it.
Treating rosacea is one of the most gratifying parts of my practice. Patients need a lot,
but are especially grateful for the extra effort.
I have attempted to provide a brief outline of the contents of this supplement in the caremap below. Each stage of rosacea is accompanied by treatment options. The details for each are in the excellent articles that follow.
