Rosacea is a skin disorder related to adult acne occurring mainly in middle-aged people of Celtic descent, and menopausal women. There is no known cure for acne rosacea. Doctors treat it in much the same way as other forms of acne, with oral and topical antibiotics. It has clear food and environmental triggers like: tomatoes, red spices, chocolate, meat marinades, hot drinks, citrus fruits, vinegar, both white and red wine, and red meats. Hot weather and stress aggravate rosacea. Some evidence suggest it is caused by a parasitic mite, human demodex.
