Hello I suffered fror Rosacea from my early 20's but it was manageable. I did have anitibiotics and creams which made it worse. It really flared up during the menopause (together with severe migraines) and where I really only had redness and flushing before I then got the awful spots. Once I was through the menopause everything calmed down obviously hormone related. I was never really able to identify any food triggers. I am now nearly 70 and have had a stressful few years. I now seem to be getting it back on one side of the face around the nose and inner cheek. It started with problems with new glasses leaving a mark and causing a spot. I just wondered what the latest advice is for this condition. Due to various digestive problems I would be loathe to take anitbiotics for this reason. The only foods I can think of that I really did not used to eat are raspberries strawberries and pineapple. I know tomatoes citrus and chocolate are triggers also alcohol heat etc. Any advice would be appreciated. I will mention to my gp who I see on a regular basis for other health problems.
Both my daughters have it but not too bad. If I remember the dermatologist I saw many years ago said I had seborrheic dermatitis as well. One other thing has come to mind about a month ago at the hairdressers they sprayed hairspray on which I usually say no to. Any advice appreciated. It just occured to me I have started drinking apple juice with lavender in it. one small glass a day.
