In brief: Perhaps

Rosacea symptoms may present gradually.
Mild flushing of the face is the key early symptom to distinguish rosacea from acne or breakout problems with skin. I do not know of a "test" that will predict impending rosacea, but family history of rosacea can be helpful. Jim beckman, md.
