VIDEO: Addressing rosacea comorbidities and their role in flushing




GRAND CAYMAN – What impact do treatments for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and menopausal flushing have in patients with erythematotelangiectatic and papulopustular rosacea?

In a video interview at the Caribbean Dermatology Symposium, Dr. Jonathan K. Wilkin, who is in private practice in Grand Cayman and is a former director of the Food and Drug Administration’s Division of Dermatologic and Dental Drug Products, refers to recent studies that have linked rosacea to these and other comorbidities. He shares his insights into how addressing these four comorbidities into your treatment calculus can improve outcomes in patients who have rosacea with flushing.
