    HI SUZYI hate my rosacea as well

    I have to be so careful what i eat or my cheeks and nose get too red and as we all know thats pretty depressing

    Ive had it at various degrees for the last 20 years or so

    As im sure youll agree diet plays a massive influence in rosacea.

    Foods that set mine off

    Cold ice cream or cold drinks. Any citrus fruits and juices. Greasy snd fatty foods, i cut all fat out of my diet and margarines. Pulses lentils etc, tomatoes, baked beans, hula hoops

    Bacon and all pork, Aubergeines, bananas, spicy hot foods

    Acohol as well but i love a drink so limit it to once a week. Perfumed toiletries is a no no for me

    I hope these might be a small help.

    Good luckHappy to chat anytime
