It can be: Skin can be dry with rosacea especially if active treatment products, or frequent washings are used. Use a non-petroleum based moisturizer like theraderm hydrator to correct dryness. Theraderm fruit acid (lactic a.) will usually correct flaking very nicely. See at: www.Therapon.Com. Jim beckman, md.

Dry skin: Rosacea is characterized by red pimples on a patient with a tendency to flush and blush. There are times when seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff) exists along with rosacea. This condition shows red, scaly areas on the scalp, eyebrows, sides of the nose, ears and central chest.
