In Reply to: Rosacea  posted by Laura Scarpinato on October 25, 1997 at 15:45:42:
  I'm a 34 year old women with increasingly-worse rosacea.  I've been looking
  into the foods that are listed as those contributing to Rosacea flare-ups
  and wondering if my past high blood pressure (I'm not sure what it currently
  is)and migraine history(not horrible, but they also seem to 'run'
  in my family)could be related to this condition.  
  Anyway, I've noticed that many of the foods listed as
  rosacea triggers are also listed as migraine triggers.  In addition,
  many of the foods are restricted on Tyramine and dopamine reduced diets.
  Is there a link between these conditions - could rosacea be
  tyramine-related?  If so, is there anything that can be taken to regulate
  the amount of tyramine that triggers the flushing response?  Or am I just
  not understanding these conditions?
  Any information is appreciated.  Thank you.
Hello Laura!!
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately as the forum is restricted to neurological problems, we are unable to provide you with any information on your dermatologic condition rosacea, as this lies outside our realm of legitimate expertise. Sorry!!!
