Rosacea? Melasma? Acne? Building community sites around medical conditions.

Patients with medical conditions often turn to each other for support. The web allows them to build a community no matter where they're located or how uncommon the condition.

Rosacea Patient Communities

If you read these types of community posts you'll discover that there's a lot if information, but there are very few if any physicians participation in the discussion, even anonymously.

I read any number of sites each day where physicians are disseminating information, but not in these groups. Curious.
