David Pascoe started the Rosacea Support Group on the internet in 1998. It started as an email group hosted at makelist.com. The email service became egroups.com and later it was acquired by Yahoo! The email group is now hosted at Yahoo!Groups.
The email group has grown slowly and steadily over the years to more than 7000 members.
Previously some rosacea pages were hosted at rosacea.ii.net.
In July 2005, Rosacea News was born. This was an attempt to collect all the interesting bits and pieces of news related to rosacea, as they happened. As the number of news items approaches 300, it was time to consolidate all of the existing Rosacea Support Group pages and Rosacea News pages together.
So what you see now is the third generation of the web pages for the Rosacea Support Group. Most pages on this site will now allow you to leave a comment at the bottom. Please feel free to comment on articles and pages that interest you.
In 2003 David Pascoe appeared in the health section of the West Australian Newspaper. Here is a scan of the 2 pages, if you’d like to have a read.
In April 2008 David was mentioned in 2 articles in the New York Times. The first was an article mentioned a book on rosacea that was written by a computer: He Wrote 200,000 Books (but Computers Did Some of the Work). The second article was titled In a Perfect World, Rosacea Remains a Problem.
