Rosacea Awareness Month: Resources to Share With Your Patients


This Rosacea Awareness Month, we have compiled a list of resources for clinicians to share with their rosacea patients.

According to the National Rosacea Society (NRS), approximately 16 million Americans have rosacea.1

Furthermore, a report most recently updated in August 2023 notes that the worldwide incidence of rosacea is upwards of 5% of the global population.2 In 2018, the NRS shared details of a study indicating that approximately 415 million individuals are affected by rosacea globally.3

April is Rosacea Awareness Month, and Dermatology Times is spotlighting a variety of resources to share with your patients. If you have a specific resource or association that you recommend to patients with rosacea, email us at DTEditor@mmhgroup.com to share with us.

The National Rosacea Society offers resources to help the estimated 16 million Americans with rosacea better understand and manage their condition.
