    Default Dehydtrated and Symptoms

    Does anyone get redness, burning, etc when they are dehydrated? I thought I was improving until today as I got really red and the burning sensations. I am wondering if it was due to being dehydrated.

    You could definitely exacerbate your rosacea symptoms by being dehydrated.
    It's a good idea to drink enough water for overall health as well as for your rosacea.

    Thank you! :-)

    Another question for you... I am going to probably have an alcoholic drink on Saturday for my friends birthday and my dermatologist told me to take something about an hour before I drink to help with the flushing/redness but I cant remember what it is.. Would you know what to take before drinking to help with the flushing/redness?

    Hi Doug,

    First of all make sure you eat something so you are not drinking on an empty stomach and then make sure you drink plenty of water at the birthday party after you have a drink. Some people find it helpful to take an antihistamine like Zyrtec before drinking and some people find taking a Zantac or Pepcid is helpful. Not sure what your doctor suggested but don't take all of these. Just pick one.

    Have a good time!
