Those susceptible to rosacea seem to be genetically predisposed to have colonization of certain microbes and have high levels of pro-inflammatories.
Research shows the following as triggers of rosacea: certain microbes and markedly increased level of pro-inflammatories like the protein cathelicidin.
Cathelicdins are vital to innate immunity, being broad-spectrum antimicrobial, chemotactic and angiogenic, which are all traits that contribute to being PRO inflammatory.
