Rosacea and Heat
Many patients with rosacea forget that hot weather can make their rosacea flare up.
Try to stay cool if you can. It’s not hard if you live in cool Seattle in June! But for those of you in warmer parts of the world, consider exercising in the early morning or in the gym.
It might be good to make sure you have a short course of oral antibiotic on hand (minocycline is frequently used) to take for a week if needed. Your doctor will advise you on that. Many people’s rosacea is well controlled on just the topical treatments except for an occasional flare.
