The Well blog on the New York Times mentions some very recent developments in the world of rosacea. It is great to see recent rosacea and genetics research and demodex bacteria research get a mention in a publication like the New York Times.

What causes rosacea and is there a cure?
Genes contribute to nearly half the risk of rosacea, but environmental and behavioral factors like sun exposure, smoking and alcohol play a role as well, according to a recent study of twins.
One possible explanation for rosacea is that patients’ immune systems overreact to a common bacterium, Bacillus oleronius, or to a mite called Demodex that lives on everyone’s skin and particularly likes the nose and cheeks
