  • The strongest El Niño weather pattern in 50 years is in full swing across the country, and that might be good news for some rosacea sufferers - at least for now. (rosacea.org)
  • Evidence suggests that heredity may indeed play a role in the development of this disorder, and that the children and other relatives of rosacea sufferers would be wise to be on the lookout for early signs as they grow older in order to seek diagnosis and treatment before the condition reaches more advanced stages.

  • affects
  • Rosacea affects around 3% of the population - usually fair-skinned females aged 30-50 and particularly those with weak immune systems. (phys.org)
  • patients
  • The numbers of Demodex mites living in the skin of rosacea patients is higher than in normal individuals, which has previously suggested a possible role for the mites in initiating the condition. (phys.org)
  • More recently, the bacterium Bacillus oleronius was isolated from inside a Demodex mite and was found to produce molecules provoking an immune reaction in rosacea patients. (phys.org)
  • Other studies have shown patients with varying types of rosacea react to the molecules produced by this bacterium - exposing it as a likely trigger for the condition. (phys.org)
  • In normal patients, the cathelicidins are found in a form that is inactive and would not lead to bumps and pimples. (rosacea.org)
  • In rosacea patients, the forms of cathelicidins are different and lead to skin inflammation. (rosacea.org)
  • The skin of mice injected with the cathelicidins found in rosacea patients showed a dramatic inflammatory response -- including bumps and pimples -- while mice injected with normal cathelicidins showed no inflammation, either visually or under a microscope. (rosacea.org)
  • Could El Niño Bring Good News for Rosacea Patients? (rosacea.org)
  • Many rosacea patients point to hot peppers when thinking about spice-related triggers, but could the popular Pumpkin Spice Latte season pose a similar food-related threat? (rosacea.org)
  • In the latest NRS survey, more than 75 percent of rosacea patients said their condition had affected interactions with others in the workplace. (rosacea.org)
  • While most rosacea patients pay attention to the ingredients in the skin-care products and cosmetics they use, for many it's a process of trial and error to determine what to avoid. (rosacea.org)
  • Cancer
  • New studies are now revealing potential associations between rosacea and increased risks of cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal disease, certain types of cancer and many other systemic illnesses. (rosacea.org)
  • skin
  • Scientists are closer to establishing a definitive bacterial cause for the skin condition rosacea. (phys.org)
  • A new review carried out by the National University of Ireland concludes that rosacea may be triggered by bacteria that live within tiny mites that reside in the skin. (phys.org)
  • His research accomplishments as a physician-scientist include discovery of antimicrobial peptides in mammalian skin and establishing new links between innate immunity and skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis and rosacea. (wikipedia.org)

  • Dr Kevin Kavanagh who conducted the review explained, "The bacteria live in the digestive tracts of Demodex mites found on the face, in a mutually beneficial relationship . (phys.org)
  • Dr Kavanagh's review "The potential role of Demodex folliculorum mites and bacteria in the induction of rosacea," will be published online ahead of print on Thursday 30 August in the Society for General Microbiology's Journal of Medical Microbiology . (phys.org)
  • Read all about it in this special issue of Rosacea Review. (rosacea.org)
  • humans
  • As we gain a thorough understanding in humans, we can look for new medications that block this process in order to treat or prevent the inflammation associated with rosacea. (rosacea.org)
  • It is found today all over the subtropical and tropical regions of the world and even occurs on many oceanic islands - in Polynesia and on Saint Helena for example - but has probably been accidentally introduced to much of its current range by humans. (wikipedia.org)

  • percent
  • Eighteen percent had a brother or sister suffering from rosacea, while 13 percent had a grandparent with the disease and 16 percent had an aunt or uncle who was affected. (rosacea.org)
  • cause
  • The cause of this abnormality in cathelicidins seems to be due to an equally important problem in rosacea -- an overabundance of yet another substance, called kallikrein, which can spur dormant cathelicidins into action. (rosacea.org)
  • His work has translated into a new understanding of the cause of rosacea, a finding with immediate therapeutic implications. (wikipedia.org)
