Acne triggers for Rosacea Skin?
I'm a 44 year old women who developed Rosacea about 19 months ago. I developed acne, for the first time in my life, at the same time. After one photofacial that wiped out about 75% of my flush, metrogel and clindamycin towelettes as well as a mild cleanser and a mild moisturizer containing 2% salacyic acid, I finally cleared up my acne. As anyone suffering rosacea knows, there is no cure, but I've been told that it is possible to control the symptoms. I had them under control, with no acne, for about 2 weeks. In the last few days I have developed about 5 new blemishes. Does anybody here know the acne triggers for rosacea skin? Especially food triggers?
Also, any good cleansers and moisturizers for rosacea skin?
Do any of you suffering rosacea find that the low card diet makes acne/rosacea worse or better?
