What’s the problem?

The good news is:

While there is no cure, rosacea can be controlled and the effects minimized through treatment and lifestyle changes.

How we can help

Our role is to provide independent, reputable information to Canadians and raise awareness. We believe knowledge and understanding of rosacea will lead to action and improvement.  

Rosacea sufferers are encouraged to get the facts, gain control – and feel better.
