Histamine link

I've done a lot of reading around rosacea and found the histamine link interesting - just wondered what a dematologists point of view is on this?

Thank you for your question. Histamine probably does not play much role in practice. This is because anti-histamines are not really effective in Rosacea. But they are very safe so feel free to try it if you would like to.

I hope this is helpful.

With best wishes,
