Health Tip: Help Tame Rosacea Flares
(HealthDay News) -- The heat of a barbecue grill can make rosacea flare, but taking a few precautions can help you tame symptoms.
The National Rosacea Society offers these suggestions:
Try not to stand right in front of the grill. Use long-handled tongs and spatulas.
Avoid marinades (which may contain ingredients that can irritate skin), and use herbs and spices to season meat. Or cook with hickory or mesquite wood chips.
Stay cool by chewing ice chips, spraying your skin with cool mist from a water bottle, or keeping a cold, wet towel around your neck.
Protect yourself from the sun with a wide-brimmed hat.
Wear sunscreen and take rosacea medication as directed by your doctor.
Ask someone else to grill, if possible.
