Hey all,
I was wondering if anyone has experienced the same symptoms...
I was diagnosed with rosacea and my triggers are foods, weather, emotions, etc. When I have a flare up, my chest and neck also get extremely red and experience the same burning sensation that my face does. I was wondering if anyone else experiences and flushing, redness and burning on other parts of their body when they have a rosacea flare up.

I have "pre-rosacea" symptoms (my father has horrible rosacea), and birth control, for whatever reason, really seems to help with mine (takes about six months for that effect to kick in), but I still flush occasionally/have a sunburned-looking streak across my cheeks/bridge of my nose + ears/neck/chest area.

Other things that have helped: switching to fragrance-free EVERYTHING (detergent, shave gel, soap/body wash/shampoo/conditioner), not using any petrolatum-based moisturizers as they tend to make me flush.
