Abstract Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the skin and is associated with a number of etiological causes and inciting factors. It is characterized by erythematous changes of the facial skin, and commonly presents with papules, pustules, or telangiectasias. The 4 subtypes of rosacea are categorized according to secondary symptoms, such as pain, erythema, dryness, and edema. A number of therapies are available to treat rosacea, some of which can be used in combination. The… Expand

Therapeutical Management for Ocular Rosacea
TLDR
Ocular rosacea includes multiple ophthalmic manifestations ranging from inflammation of the eyelid margin and blepharitis to serious corneal affectations, which can result in chronic inflammatory conditions including keratinization and loss ofCorneal transparency, which lead to important visual sequelae for affected patients.

TLDR
Ademetionine may be a sparring partner in the treatment of rosacea using combination treatments and may also influence the balanced presence of other microbes present on the skin. Expand

Induction of rosaceiform dermatitis during treatment of facial inflammatory dermatoses with tacrolimus ointment.
TLDR
The observations suggest that the spectrum of rosaceiform dermatitis as a complication of treatment with tacrolimus ointment is heterogeneous, and a variety of factors, such as vasoactive properties of tacolimus, proliferation of Demodex due to local immunosuppression, and the occlusive properties of the ointments may be involved in the observed phenomena.
