This webcam is devoted to rosacea, detailing the different theories on its pathogenesis and current treatments available. It stresses the fact that not all red faces are rosacea and the primary abnormality – prolonged facial flushing – must be present to make the diagnosis. Treatment is split into that for inflammatory, Type 2 rosacea and pure vascular or Type 1 rosacea. It stresses the fact that facial flushing does not respond to topical or oral antibiotics and flushing must be controlled for effective treatment of rosacea. Oral and topical agents effective in vascular rosacea are discussed as is the role of laser therapy.
