Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that many adults (and some teens) suffer from. It normally shows up in adults between the ages of 30 to 50. It consists of red spots on the face and sometimes it will appear as if the individual has acne. These red spots and flushing episodes make it hard to go out and socialize, causing the individual to have a poor social life. Most individuals who have rosacea feel self-confident and for this reason, they choose not to socialize with others.

Pulse Light Clinic have put many years of research into the condition of rosacea, they have found that certain foods and beverages that can trigger rosacea flare ups. Sufferers who are dealing with this skin condition should follow the clinics recommendations and avoid eating foods that have been proven to trigger rosacea.

A few foods that can trigger rosacea include: chocolate, spicy foods, hot soups, some citrus fruits, sour cream, yogurt and foods that are high in Histamine (cheese, eggplant, vinegar and soy sauce).

Along with foods there are various drinks that can cause rosacea to flare up. Alcohol and various hot beverages can trigger the flare ups.

Alcohol does not cause rosacea, but having as little as one drink can trigger a flare-up, especially if the individual is drinking red wine. As a general rule of thumb, individuals should reduce the amount of alcohol they consume and reduce temperatures of the beverages they drink.
