The Most Basic of Recommendations for Rosacea Patients

The exact cause of rosacea is still unknown. The best prevention may be to avoid things that make your face red or flushed.

Avoid hot drinks, spicy foods, caffeine and alcoholic beverages. It's important to note that although alcohol may worsen a case of rosacea. Symptoms may be just as severe in someone who doesn't drink at all. This condition has been unfairly linked to alcoholism.

Practice good topical antioxidant and sun protection. This includes limiting exposure to sunlight, wearing hats and using broad spectrum rosacea-specific sunscreens and avoiding extreme hot and cold temperatures which may worsen the symptoms of rosacea.

Avoid rubbing, scrubbing or massaging the face. Rubbing will tend to irritate the reddened skin.

Exercise in a cool environment. Don't overheat.

Keep a note of flushing episodes and note associated foods, products, activities, medications or other triggering factors.
