What Can Cause A Rosacea Flare Up?

Rosacea, or acne rosacea may be brought on by many dietary and lifestyle factors. Any liver, skin or immunity health issue can be linked to this symptom. The following can be the trigger of a Rosacea flare up:


– Wine, beer, hard liquor

– Coffee, tea


– Cayenne Pepper

– Black pepper



– Capsicum, Tomato, Eggplant

– Citrus fruit, avocado, banana

– Aged cheese

– Chocolate

– White Vinegar

– Canned foods and fish

You could try taking out one food at a time until you have removed all of these things and then re-introduce them one at a time.

If you keep a food and symptom diary this may help you note any changes and identify your triggers.

You will still need to address underlying health issues for permanent results such as nutritional deficiencies, and many thyroid patients in particular can reintroduce many foods longer term once their body is more in balance.

Try avoiding these foods before considering a full elimination diet with a qualified Naturopath. Good luck!
