Dr. Karen Han answered:

Will rosacea cause acne?

No

Acne
Rosacea and acne are different disorders. Acne is a follicular disease characterized by increase oil gland production, colonization of p.acnes bacteria, resulting in pustules and white or black heads. Rosacea is not follicle based, and is associated with increased demodex (mite) colonization, triggered by sun, heat, alcohol, caffiene, etc... One can have both conditions at the same time.

Dr. Karen Han answered:

What exacerbates rosacea?

5 common triggers

Skin
Rosacea is a proinflammatory condition. A stimulus at a low threshold will cause flushing. Repeated flushing causes the skin changes we see in rosacea such as dilated vessels, enlarging sebaceous glands, and red papules. Common triggers to avoid are caffeine (coffee, teas, chocolates, etc), alcohol (wines, beers), increase in core temperature (hot tub, sauna, etc.), hot spicy food, and sun.

Can children get rosacea?

Rosacea in children

Rollerblading
Although the incidence of rosacea in adolescents and children is infrequent, such cases have been documented in the medical literature. Eyelid styes may be one form. Rosacea often runs in families, and rosacea sufferers would be wise to be on the lookout for early signs in children in order to seek diagnosis and treatment before the condition worsens.
