In brief: Rosacea vrs Acne
As rosacea is a neurovascular disorder it affects the flushing zone.
It is common that rosacea does not present with blackheads that are seen with acne vulgaris. Also the age of onset, and the location of redness is a clue. Rosacea is commonly an adult disease, and is generally restricted to the nose, cheeks, chin and forehead. It can coexist with acne vulgaris.
