Rosacea Australia

The impact of rosacea on patients in Australia is under-appreciated.

Most Australian patients with rosacea experience discomfort, typically facial burning, itching, stinging, swelling, and even pain.

These symptoms of rosacea affect the self-esteem of Australians with rosacea, reducing their quality of life.

Patients will most typically avoid public or social contact when their condition is active.

Rosacea is typically characterised by a cycle of relapses and remissions.

A retrospective study of 48 Australian rosacea patients previously diagnosed with rosacea in Australia found that 58% still had active rosacea, with an average ongoing duration of 11 years.

Rosacea in the remaining Australians had cleared, but those rosacea patients had experienced symptoms on average for 7 years.

Accordingly, rosacea treatment regimens need to address both acute symptoms and help patients remain symptom free.

Rosacea Australia follow-up research has shown that patients with rosacea who continue therapy long term are less likely to experience a recurrence of symptoms.

Symptoms can be effectively controlled with topical and oral pharmacologic therapies, avoidance of triggers and proper skin care.
