    I have Rosacea and know the foods to avoid and the foods that should help with the redness. However that diet conflicts with my IBS and Reflux diet. What would be some of the BEST foods that you know of that would keep the Rosacea at bay?

    Dear deb6583,
    I sympathize with you, having 2 conditions that restrict your diet. With rosacea, there are no foods that help it, only foods that aggravate it. Look on the website rosacea.org for the most common triggers. Not everyone will be triggered by the same foods, so you have to be a detective to determine what your triggers are. You may even want to keep a food diary. If your skin becomes red within minutes of eating a certain food or drink, that is a trigger. If you have a break out, it could be something that you ate in the past day. Also notice, that environmental conditions are the most common triggers, especially sun exposure, so wear your sunblock and walk on the shady side of the street. I hope this helps. Good luck!
