Morristown, N.J. - Drugmaker Intendis has developed a smart phone application, or app, designed to provide sufferers of mild to moderate rosacea with information and support to help manage their condition.

According to an Intendis press release, the Rosacea App will be available free to anyone who has an iPhone, BlackBerry or Android. The app, being launched this month, was previewed in February at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology.

The Rosacea App works as a source of information and personal daily journal. It offers daily weather alerts - important, since rosacea can be affected by heat, cold and wind - and describes symptoms and treatments. Users can also refer to the app for information on foods and beverages that may cause flares, and to find alternatives.

The app also offers an assessment tool that can help users to better understand their own relationship with the disease, and provides information about how certain treatment options may work for mild to moderate rosacea.
