Does nasal saline solution help with a red nose from rosacea?

In brief: Sorry, no.

Nasal saline helps moisturize a dry nasal cavity, but will do nothing for the dilated capillaries of the external nasal skin.
Topical antibiotics, oral antibiotics, and laser treatments may treat (but not "cure") the vessels of rosacea.

In brief: Dryness

Saline may only help with the dryness and may not help improve the redness.
