Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects an estimated 13 million Americans, with almost half of these patients between the ages of 30 and 50 years old [1]. It is a relapsing, chronic dermatosis that develops in stages and is characterized by a defect in vascular responsiveness [2,3].

TLDR
This editorial will extend the reader beyond the short list of real facts to consider theories about how rosacea might develop, and finds the most compelling view a synthesis of selected insights of Ryan, Marks, and several Scandinavian workers.

Recognizing rosacea.
TLDR
Rosacea is a common disorder of the facial skin that tends to become apparent after age 30 and early diagnosis and appropriate management can alleviate patient discomfort and psychological distress as well as prevent serious long-term complications.
Flash lamp pumped dye laser for rosacea-associated telangiectasia and erythema.
TLDR
A flash lamp pumped dye laser tuned at 585 nm gave good or excellent reduction of telangiectasia and erythema and overall appearance in 24 of the patients with between one and three treatments, and it is suggested that this is a useful additional form of treatment that may improve the telango-erythematous component of rosacea.

Topical metronidazole maintains remissions of rosacea.
TLDR
In a majority of subjects studied, continued treatment with metronidazole gel alone maintains remission of moderate to severe rosacea induced by treatment with oral tetracycline and topical metronidezole gel.

TLDR
Clinical and histological effects of glycolic acid at pH levels 3.25, 3.80, and 4.40 demonstrated significant improvement in the condition of the skin with trends implying that increasing the pH increases efficacy.

TLDR
The studies demonstrated that topical glycolic acid provides a photoprotective effect to pretreated skin yielding an SPF of approximately 2.4 and the data obtained from both studies support the hypothesis that gly colic acids acts as an antioxidant.
