Hi there, I'm new to the forum and was recently diagnosed with rosacea. At first, I was happy that someone finally figured out what was wrong with my skin, but when I found out that there was no cure for it and the wide variety of things that may trigger rosacea...suffice to say I'm not a happy camper. Anyway, I suffer from p&ps and I flush (face turns hot but no redness - is that normal?!). I'm abstaining from all possible triggers for now which means there's not too much I can eat, unfortunately.
My question is, how long does it take for a food trigger to cause an outbreak? I'm thinking back to the last outbreak I had and I can't figure out what exactly caused the outbreak because I'm not sure whether something I ate in the morning can cause an outbreak 8 hours later. Do the p&ps usually appear much sooner than that? What about exercise? It definitely causes me to flush immediately but do p&ps come within the next hour or two, or could that reaction be much more delayed?
Thanks, hope to hear from everyone!
