Signs of rosacea or couperose
Rosacea begins with redness in the face. On rare occasions, it can spread onto the neck and chest. Redness can be accompanied by enlarged vessels, heat waves and scaling. The next stage brings acne and pimples. Thickened skin and skin growths appear at later stages. Growths on the nose create an onion looking shape. At any stage, rosacea causes burning, itching and swelling.
Couperose is a certain form of rosacea. It comes slowly and can be quite intense. You will recognize couperose on the face by spotting enlarged blood vessels. They create a unique web and further spreading depends on and varies from person to person. These vessels are mostly visible in the nose, cheek bone and cheek area. More serious stages of couperose affect the whole face.

The length of rosacea and couperose treatment can vary. Patients are usually prescribed antibiotics and anti-inflammatory steroids. Laser therapy or the right rosacea cream can solve the problem.
When suffering from rosacea and couperose avoid...
If you suffer from rosacea or couperose, avoid saunas or thermal baths. They support blood circulation which only promotes spreading of rosacea and couperose. Do not use aggressive means such as soaps or micellar waters. Avoid products with alcohol. Intense sunshine can also be rosacea trigger. Use sunscreens with UV factors of at least 30. Add hats to your outfits. In winter, use scarves or take preventive measures against the wind. Start using sensitive make-up and avoid frequent touching of skin affected with rosacea.
Rosacea and couperose diet
Consumption of foods that contain refined sugar, white flour, processed vegetable oils, artificial sweeteners and conservants only feeds rosacea and couperose. You should also avoid fried and sweet meals. They promote blood circulation which then leads to further redness. Alcohol can also have adverse effects. You should also avoid coffee, tea and hot cocoa as these drinks increase body temperature and worsen rosacea and couperose.
Try to consume anti-inflammatory foods and spices that can alleviate the symptoms of rosacea and couperose (cauliflower, cucumber, poultry). Foods containing omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids will also help. Probiotic foods (yoghurt, kefir, sauerkraut) and fiber-rich foods (banana, leek, garlic, whole grain foods) are irreplaceable as well.
There are certain diet rules one should keep during rosacea/couperose treatment, however it is up to each one of us to see what causes us trouble. This requires time and careful self-observation. Rosacea and couperose develop slowly over time so be ready to expect that treatment will take some time as well.
