Q&A: Menopause & Location
Q. Is there any relationship between the onset of menopause and the beginning of rosacea?
A. While the cause of rosacea remains unknown, its signs and symptoms, especially the flushing characteristic of subtype 1 (erythematotelangiectatic) rosacea, may initially be noted while women are experiencing menopause. In these cases, alleviating the underlying flushing may help keep rosacea under control.
