Did you know that April is Rosacea Awareness Month, and the National Rosacea Society encourages physicians and patients to raise awareness of the disease and its impact on affected individuals.
3 new things of note with rosacea:
1. A new Acne and Rosacea Society of Canada is launching!…stay tuned for more information.
2. There is a new oral once-daily medication (Apprilon) for patients who have papules or pustules (acne-like lesions) with their rosacea.
3. In mid-April there will be the first ever topical anti-redness gel on the market called Onreltea. Applied in the morning (you can put other things over top of it such as sunscreen or makeup), it begins working in 30min, with maximal effect at 3-6 hours, and lasts for about 12 hours.
