Aggravating factors

Aggravating factors are all possible trigger of flushing and blushing. People who suffer from rosacea should avoid these factors.

These factors are:

1. extreme temperatures like cold or heat (e.g. sauna):

Extreme temperatures like cold or especially heat (as in a sauna or while taking a hot bath) cause physiological flushing and may trigger rosacea. Hence, they should be avoided.

2. ultraviolet radiation:

Frequently rosacea is associated with sun-damaged skin (solar elastosis), which seems to be a triggering factor. Hence, especially patients with rosace should avoid ultraviolet radiation like sun baths.

3. emotional stress:

Emotional stress due to embarrassment or anger may induce flushing, which is a precursor of rosacea.

4. alcoholic beverages:

Already small quantities of alcohol induce vasodilation, which may cause intensive flushing. As flushing is an important trigger rosacea patients should abstain from alcohol.

5. spiced food:

Spiced food induces flushing associated with sweating due to a reflex of the trigeminal nerve. As flushing is an important trigger rosacea patients should not eat spiced food.

6. hot drinks:

Hot drinks induce flushing due to the effect of rise in blood temperature. As flushing is an important trigger rosacea patients should avoid hot drinks.
