Coffee question

There is a lot of interest in how what you eat can affect your rosacea. Some foods can cause a flareup in rosacea symptoms. Also the makeup of your diet in general will affect your health for sure and also your rosacea.

According to this (you have to scan one of the wiki articles linked, and get a headache), it's a vasodilator. BUT what could affect some people could be that, the heat, or the dairy added.

Personally, I used to be able to drink it with caffeine, but now I stick to decaf, and not piping hot, just very warm.

You are right that the answer isn't clear.

Look:

I swear it's a vasoconstrictor! LOL. I could still be wrong though... (redface)

I was given a special recognition via a lifetime discount on fresh roasted coffee beans because I am such a good customer of my favourite coffee maker.

When I calculated how much I have spent in the last 2.5 years on coffee at their shop I was, well, shocked.

not addicted, I promise, I just know what I like ....

I therefore am inclined to agree with others who speculate that it might be the temperature of the coffee rather than caffeine per se.


I read that we should avoid coffee on a list with different food to avoid but because of the heat. There is an article here that I read about it

Thank you for that information, Mum3! While I don't flush very often, I have been worried that coffee might cause the papule outbreaks that I do get. I love coffee and don't see how I could make myself get out of bed if I could not stumble into the kitchen and make a pot of coffee! Without it, I would surely |-) I could not resist using that smilie! I don't think the papules would be caused simply by the heat of the beverage....so I am thinking that coffee is harmless to me. Whee! (dance2)

By the way, having lived for a year in London with my family, I am "mum" to my daughters. Does mum3 mean you have 3 children? Just curious. While we were there my daughters gave me a mug for Mother's Day...but it says "mum" on it. I use it for my morning coffee all the time!

Hi
You could always try to cut down on the cooffe and see if there is a difference. I myself drink plenty of tea, I love tea but I have cut down on it.
How ever green tea should be good but does not taste so good without sugar..I try to avoid all sugar but its really difficult, atleast I did cut it down a lot.
You could also try to drink the coffee less hot.
Yes I have 3 children in age 3 months to 4 years.I am a homemum with them, so to cut down on stress might be difficult.
I lived in the UK for 4 years before I moved back to Sweden I loved the weather over there green all year around!

I actually drank a lot of Iced Coffee in NYC.... and that is when I started to notice the Rosacea. I really hate hot coffee although I will drink it.

At the time I drank coffee... once or twice a day. Sometimes I would sneak in a Nesspresso at work.... but iced as well.

Now that I am in Germany I drink hot coffee in the morning and starbucks is not as available... but I still flare up at times. Should I just avoid coffee?

Hi
Everyone has different reactions. I only drink iced coffee, as I find hot drinks make things worse.
