What should I know about caffeine and rosacea flare-ups?

Caffeine is a common trigger for many people with rosacea. A rosacea trigger is something that causes this skin condition to flare with acne-like lesions, inflammation, and tiny spider veins on the cheeks and nose. Many foods and beverages can trigger rosacea, including red wine and alcohol, spicy foods, and warm foods and beverages such as coffee and tea.

It's important to know your rosacea triggers. It's also helpful to keep a daily rosacea journal to record what you eat and drink and when your rosacea symptoms flare. You may start to see a connection between foods and beverages such as coffee with your rosacea flare-ups. Once you establish a connection, take control of your rosacea symptoms by avoiding your personal triggers.
