Can i eat chicken and meat with rosacea?
I read contrasting opinions about eating chicken and meat with roasacea. Having already given up at the idea of eating spicy food, tomatoes, cheese and fish, I really hope that I can eat those foods and I would like to have yours opinions.

people with rosacea react in different ways to different foods
so you'll have to experiment with your diet and decide for yourself what you can eat

good point dora, its a matter of trial and error...you have to experiment and see what works and what doesn't. I can eat chicken and red meat no problemo.

yep ... and i don't seem to have any problem with reasonable amounts of tomatoes or spices.
besides our different reactions, there's also another variable, at least for some of us:
how much we're prepared to give up in exchange for better skin.
some of us can decide we love XYZ too much to give it up totally even though it causes some skin problems.
(i know some people's reactions to some things are too severe to bear, but for a lot of us
there is some leeway with some foods/activities, and we can make informed decisions that we can live with the repercussions.)
it's similar with certain medications: i've read that some of the meds i take aren't good for rosacean skin,
but i choose to take them anyway, to deal with other health problems.
we each make our own choices about how to adjust our lives to the fact that we have rosacea.

I agree Dora, my favorite foods and drinks (Crown Royal and Redwine) are contraindicated for rosacea. I also adore spicy food, and am having to consider the condition of my face vs lifestyle and food choices. For me it's a difficult decision to make, and I'm definitely pushing my luck.
