In support of the National Rosacea Society's Rosacea Awareness Month, SkinCareRx, your personal skin care expert, is providing counseling, treatments and specialty products to reduce the physical and psychological effects of the incurable and little-known disease of Rosacea.
Extremely common, but often overlooked, Rosacea affects more than 14 million Americans today. Unfortunately, 78% of Americans neither know how to recognize this disease nor how to treat it.
"Rosacea is most often characterized by 'erythema' or flushing of the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin," said Dr. Mark B. Taylor, co-founder and medical director of SkinCareRx. "In less prevalent cases, this flushing can also affect the shoulders and the back of individuals. Although Rosacea affects women about three times more often than men, Rosacea does not discriminate," he said.
The National Rosacea Society has designated April as Rosacea Awareness Month to create a greater knowledge about the disease and to encourage those who may be suffering from Rosacea to seek help in diagnosing and treating the symptoms before they reach advanced stages.
"Although there is no known cure for Rosacea, it can be controlled," said Chris Taylor, CEO of SkinCareRx. "Treatment of Rosacea is long-term as it is characterized by periods of flare-ups and remissions. We offer a number of effective treatments that control and suppress Rosacea symptoms. Most notably the NuCelle Mandelic Marine Complex, Murad sensitive skin soothing serum, iS Clinical Pro Heal Serum and Avene Diroseal - an anti-redness skincare lotion designed to control the impact of Rosacea and help patients lead a more normal life."

According to the National Rosacea Society, because of its effects on personal appearance, Rosacea can cause significant emotional, social and even occupational problems if left untreated. Recent surveys by the National Rosacea Society indicate that nearly 68 percent of Rosacea sufferers said this condition has lowered their self-confidence and self-esteem, and 41 percent reported it had caused them to avoid public contact or cancel social engagements.
Among Rosacea patients with severe symptoms, 66 percent said the disorder had adversely affected their professional interactions and 28 percent said it may even have negatively influenced their being chosen for a new job or promotion.
