Rosacea is very common and eliminating foods CAN help. My
particular foods to avoid are chilies, eggplant, alchoholic beverages,
vinegars, and curries. (whahhhh! I love them so) However, if I do not
want to look like a cherry tomato all the time I avoid them like plague.
External things for ~anyone~ with rosacea to avoid are: sun, wind, cold,
facial soaps, and any facial products with alpha hydroxy.
There is a very helpful site on the internet which you may wish to
visit at: http://www.rosacea.org/home.html
Once you gain control over your redness and breakouts you will find
that your face is a berometer of your internal health as well. What I mean
to say is, that your face will also tell you immediately if you have
consumed something which you are ~allergic~ to. (It's amazing, but I find
this to be true)
Hope this helps,
P.S. I do use the Metrocream when I have a breakout, but have never used
the daily oral antibiotics. I do not feel this to be safe on a long term
basis. (personal opinion here) Write to me if you want to know about
facial wash, and makeups which are working for me. ;)
