What increases my risk for cyclic rosacea?

Doctors are still unsure about what causes cyclic rosacea, but they have found that some people are at a higher risk than others for the condition. There seems to be a hereditary link, so if one or more of your family members has the condition, you are more likely to get it, too. If you are fair-skinned or if you flush very easily, you are more likely to develop rosacea. Women going through menopause (or anyone between the ages of 30 and 60) are more susceptible, as well.
