Survey results for

March/May: Rosacea Awareness

Our brand new rosacea hub went live in April of 2016. Ahead of the launch, we wanted to know how many of our members had rosacea and to learn as much as possible about their experiences with the condition. The survey explores when individuals discovered they had rosacea, the variations of the condition, treatment, recommended support and more.

Here are the top highlights from the survey:

  • The vast majority – well over two thirds – reported that their rosacea is brought on or exacerbated by stress
  • 2/3 had tried topical treatments such as ointment or gels to combat their symptoms, half had made other changes to their skincare treatment regimes, skin camouflage regimes (the use of make-up to hide rashes), or tried adopting lifestyle changes to avoid factors that trigger flare-ups. 84% said that they had never used a treatment that had treated their symptoms to their satisfaction
  • 40% had never been to their GP, but of those who did, less than a quarter said that they thought that there was enough support offered to them by the medical profession
