April is Rosacea Awareness Month!

While the cause of rosacea is still unknown, what is known is that it is estimated to affect up to 16 million people in the United States alone.

Additionally, a recent survey by the National Rosacea Society indicated that 47% of affect patients were unaware of the disorder prior to their diagnosis, and 95% stated that they knew very little about the signs and symptoms of rosacea.

This Friday, HCPLive will be hosting a variety of discussions and new investigations regarding rosacea in an effort to raise awareness of the condition. 

For this episode of DocTalk, Karan Lal, DO, MS, FAAD, of the Schweiger Dermatology Group provides information on how doctors diagnose rosace, variations of rosacea, what treatments are currently available, and current trends in research regarding the condition.
