Re: Acne or Rosacea?
Rosacea is mostly redness with small bumps and is typically in the T-zone area. Acne is mostly larger breakouts and can occur all over the body- rosacea is usually affects only the face and sometimes neck. The redness is bright and enlarges the pores on the cheeks and in extreme cases can really make your nose look terrible. The dermatologist is really the only one who can diagnose you, it's up to you how you choose to take care of it from there. There is a lot of information on the web- just avoid pages that are selling things. It mostly affects fair skinned people from a European background, Though you can easily see the difference in photographs between acne and rosacea.
