  • Alcohol Consecutive Nights Trigger?

    I was wondering if anyone else has noticed this as a trigger for rosacea flare-ups: drinking alcohol for a number of consecutive nights? I have noticed that if I drink two nights in a row I am fine, but if I drink 3 or more nights in a row I have a severe flair up with extreme redness and inflammation, acne-like breakouts (like 30 at a time), followed by skin peeling after the redness and inflammation go away (typical cycle 7 days start to finish). More specifics: If I drink I typically have 4 drinks per night consisting of two 5-ounce glasses of white wine and two shots of whiskey over ice. Other nights I don't drink anything. Yes, I am aware white wine is a common trigger, and alcohol in general.
