Rosacea is a benign skin condition that affects a wide spectrum of ethnicities including patients with fair skin and European ancestry to patients with darker skin.

Most people with rosacea understand that it is like a lifelong condition that should be successfully treated through a rosacea management program that incorporates lasers and effective topical skin care. Although we don't understand the absolute causes of rosacea, we know that there are many triggers associated with rosacea flareups that may result in skin redness, inflammation, and breakouts. It is very important for you to understand the triggers that may make your rosacea worse, and these vary from person to person. Spicy foods, dehydration, extremes of weather including cold and warm weather, and stressful situation may exacerbate your rosacea flareups.
Although retinoids are often avoided when patients have rosacea, newer studies have shown that the sebum in the skin may be a trigger for rosacea breakouts. A titrated dose of retinoic acid may help reduce the pores and see them in your skin, thereby reducing rosacea flareups.
