Rosacea in Guelph

Rosacea is a common chronic inflammatory skin condition that usually affects the face. The most common areas where rosacea is often seen is on the nose, chin, cheeks and forehead.

Signs and symptoms of rosacea are frequent intermittent facial flushing or blushing, persistent redness, superficial dilated blood vessels, dry skin, burning or itching skin, pimples, and swelling. Rosacea symptoms vary from person to person and the severity is unpredictable.

When it comes to alleviating the rosacea itchy symptoms, your gut health plays an important role. That is why it is crucial to be aware of the foods that trigger the symptoms. Rosacea rash can be caused by consuming the following:

  • Spicy foods
  • Hot beverages
  • Alcohol
  • Dairy
  • Chocolate
  • High-histamine foods
Consumption of these foods and beverages can make the skin rash symptoms of rosacea worse at night, especially in winter.

Rosacea comes in 4 types:

  • Erythematotelangiectatic Rosacea (ETR) – associated with facial redness, flushing, and visible blood vessels
  • Papulopustural Rosacea – associated with acne-like breakouts and is common in middle-aged women
  • Rhinophyma – a rare type of rosacea characterized by the thickening of the skin on the nose and is a common skin condition in men
  • Ocular Rosacea – skin blemishes are centered on the eye area. You can also find rosacea on eyelids.
