They found rosacea patients were 46% more likely than controls to have celiac disease; 45% more likely to have Crohn’s disease; 19% more prone to ulcerative colitis; and had a 34% higher rate of irritable bowel syndrome. The co-occurrence of Helicobacter pylori infection and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth was significantly higher among patients with rosacea at baseline, but the risk of developing incident Helicobacter pylori infection or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth during follow-up was insignificant, the study’s lead author Alexander Egeberg, M.D., Ph.D., department of dermatology and allergy, Herlev and Gentofte Hospital, Hellerup, Denmark, tells Dermatology Times.
