Has anyone had rosacea and found that it got better on the gluten free diet? My rosacea is so bad that you can see blood vessels in my face and It makes me look so red. By the way, I don't drink alcohol, some people think that you get a red face from alcohol. I hope someone can tell me if their rosacea got better after being on the diet.

Thank you

Mine did improve a bit, but I was still getting it quite a lot until I cut out some other foods I was intolerant to, and limited sugar. I find that when I eat nice a safe my skin is very settled, but if I go overboard with sugar I can really flare up. I think it has a lot to do with inflammation for me.

Is your rosacea pretty constant, or does it flare up/get worse at times?

My rosacea stays red at all times but will get even redder and worse when I get upset. and when I work out my whole head gets red. I end up looking like a tomato.

Fair enough. Mine often got worse after some foods, especially MSG, which gave me some clues that it was food related. If you do find any changes with foods, make a note of them.

If it's of interest, I used the topical antibiotic cream for a while but found it didn't help much. My doctor tried me on a very low dose tetracycline antibiotic to treat another skin condition (folliculitis on the scalp, neck and back), and it seemed to help the rosacea as well. The dose was below that which kills bacteria so it wont upset your gut, but these low dose antibiotics are supposed to help with inflamed skin.

I may try to see if my doc will give me the tetracycline. I have heard of that before.

Mine calmed down once I went gluten-free and regulated my hormones.
