Heat stimuli test by infrared reveals rosacea as a heat sensitive skin disorder
Sun exposure was proved to be possible precipitating factor for rosacea. In our study, we determined infrared heat alone could provoke the disease by inducing significant blood flow-mediated vasodilation, independently from ultraviolet. We suggest a physical sunlight protection that blocks both UV exposure and heat for daily protection of rosacea.
