Do the same triggers cause flare-ups for everyone with cyclic rosacea?

Cyclic rosacea is a very personalized condition. Common triggers are wind and sun exposure, alcohol or spicy or hot foods, or becoming stressed or agitated, but not all of these things will be triggers for everyone. Some people with cyclic rosacea will not get a flare-up after eating spicy food, but will after consuming alcohol. Others might be especially sensitive to sunlight. Everyone is different.

In the same way, flare-ups may take longer to appear after the trigger for some people than for others. The length of flare-ups also changes from person to person.
