Liquor, white wine increases rosacea risk in women

By jeremyc | April 27, 2017

According to a new study, who drink liquor and white wine might have a greater risk of developing rosacea, a chronic, inflammatory condition of the skin.

The face and the neck are two areas that are most commonly affected by rosacea. Early symptoms are flushing of the cheeks, nose, chin, and forehead. Patients may also experience burning sensation and swelling.

Rosacea is often mistaken for eczema or acne. The symptoms of this condition worsen if no treatment is sought. It is more common in people having a fair skin. There’s no cure for rosacea, but with proper treatment, its symptoms can be controlled. The exact cause of this skin condition is not known. However, there are several risk factors that can trigger or aggravate the condition.

A new study now suggests liquor and white wine are risk factors for rosacea in women. For this study, the researchers perused data of more than 82,000 women.

The researchers noted that women who drank alcohol were more likely to develop rosacea than women who didn’t consume alcohol. Furthermore, alcohol consumption and risk of developing rosacea were found to be directly related. That is, the more the alcohol intake, the greater the risk of rosacea.

Among different types of alcohol, liquor and white wine increased the risk of rosacea most.
