Is having cyclic rosacea the same as having allergies?

Cyclic rosacea may seem similar to allergies because both rosacea and allergies are often reactions, triggered by something in your environment. But they are not the same. Rosacea is a condition involving the blood vessels in your face, while allergies involve your immune system. That said, if you have allergies and your allergies cause your face to flush, then your allergies can become a trigger for your cyclic rosacea. By avoiding the triggers for your allergies, you will also be avoiding some of the triggers for your rosacea.
