In brief: 5 common triggers
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.
