30 JULY/AUGUST 2014 | Med Esthetics By Linda W. Lewis the PHYSICIANS DISCUSS NEW TOPICAL TREATMENTS AND WHERE THEY FIT WITHIN A COMPREHENSIVE ROSACEA TREATMENT PLAN. ABOUT 16 MILLION PEOPLE struggle with rosacea symptoms, ranging from diff use redness and skin sensitivity to red blotches, visible blood vessels, papules and pustules. Yet, with no cure in sight, dermatologists must draw on their knowledge of the available topicals, devices, oral medications and lifestyle behaviors to relieve rosacea symptoms. Research is slowly uncovering factors associated with the four subtypes of rosacea— erythematotelangeictatic, papulopustular, phymatous and ocular. But medical researchers have yet to pinpoint the skin condition's direct cause.
