Acne triggers for Rosacea Skin?

Hello all,
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?
Thanks, Evy

Re: Acne triggers for Rosacea Skin?

I can't answer the diet questions, but I can tell you that the acne is PART of the Rosacea. It's the Rosacea that causes the acne, not the other way around. By treating the Rosacea you're also treating the acne.
Choose the devil you don't know.

Re: Acne triggers for Rosacea Skin?

Right crossbow, I got that . Thats one reason I got the photofacial, it's the remaining 25% area where the blush remains that I broke out. So after about 3 weeks of no new blemishes, and 2 weeks clear, I'm wondering what I did to trigger this response.
Thanks, Evy
