Is yard work an issue with rosacea?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

You may encounter some common rosacea triggers when doing yard work including increased sun exposure, strenuous exercise, and hot weather. In addition, if you have allergies to grasses or pollens, yard work may increase your exposure to these elements and possibly raise your risks for rosacea flares. In one survey, about one-third of people with rosacea said they experienced flare-ups when they had allergic reactions, according to the National Rosacea Society. Wearing sunscreen and protective clothing, breaking up your yard work into short intervals so you don’t become overheated, staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water, and avoiding known allergens in the yard are all strategies for minimizing your risks of flares. Consult your dermatologist for other ways to stay safe while working outdoors.
