Cheese and Rosacea?

danna | Jun 23, 2004 12:01 PM

I have a friend who gets flare-ups of her Rosacea when she eats cheese. The weird thing is she says "fresh" cheeses don't bother her. She eats fresh mozzerella and some fresh goat cheeses.

On her honeymoon in Italy, she ate cheese with abandon and had no outbreaks. Her dermatologist helpfully said it was due to being happy and stress-free, but I find that less than satisfying.

Has anyone had experience with this? Understand the link between aged cheeses and her reaction? My goal here (other than simple curiosity) is to figure out what cheeses I can reasonably offer her.
