In brief: No

There are on specific supplements for rosacea, but zinc is helpful for acne and may help rosacea.

In brief: Rosacea,fatty acids

Rosacea is a chronic skin disorder usually confused with acne.
As far as supplements i recommend that my patients follow an anti-inflammatory diet rich in essential fatty acids (olive oil, nuts) supplemented with flax and borage oils. Topically preparations with Alpha lipoic acid reduce the redness.
