A high frequency of fatty food and tea intake appear to be risk factors for rosacea, while dairy products seem to be beneficial for patients with the condition, according to results of a multicenter, retrospective, case-control study published in the Journal of Dermatology.
The investigators sought to evaluate the potential relationship between rosacea and diet among a large Chinese population of patients with the disorder, thus helping to provide dietary guidelines for individuals with rosacea. The feeding frequency 2 years before the development of the condition was obtained via the use of standardized questionnaires. Risk factors linked to diet were calculated through the use of multiple logistic regression analysis.
