In brief: Specific vs general

A rash can mean any skin lesion of any description and from any cause.
Rosacea is a disease condition manifested mostly with reddish cheeks (with or without pimple-like lesion), bulbous nose, and/or itchy eyelids. Every facial flush tends to increase the inflammation . However rosacea can also be called a rash.
