Abstract

A simple method is described which causes rosacea patients to flush. This flush is experienced similarly to the flush which occurs spontaneously and its intensity can be measured and monitored wuantitatively. Therefore, it can be used as a suitable experimental tool to measure and compare the inhibitory effects of some drugs, as well as the fluctuations of the blood level of certain chemical vasoactive mediators.
