A new study found that it might help fight the dry eye symptoms of ocular rosacea.
While the hot, spicy flavors of many cuisines offer a virtual explosion of taste, for many with rosacea such foods may result in an explosion of signs and symptoms as well. Here are some tips to keep a little sizzle in your meal without triggering a flare-up.
