Clinical Trend of the Week (May 27 – June 2): Rosacea

Investigation into an association between two conditions is responsible for this week's top search term. A study in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology explored the prevalence and risk of migraine in patients with rosacea. The findings showed a higher prevalence of and risk for new-onset migraines in adults with rosacea. This was particularly evident among women older than 50 years and patients with ocular rosacea. No cause-and-effect relationship was established, and a Danish population was studied, meaning the results cannot be generalized to other ethnicities. Still, the potential overlap between rosacea and migraine triggers is one of much interest, resulting in the spike in searches for this week's top term.
