Rosacea is a condition primarily defined by a flushed look to the skin. It sounds like you just have dry skin...or maybe eczema...are you using any moisturizers or harsh cleansers?

Its generally not a good idea to use anything the could potentially irritate your skin while on accutane. Try not using the sage for a couple of days and see what happens...

not to get off your subject, but I developed a slight case of eczema on the knuckles of my hands.

Currently on accutane right now, but I don't know my blood type :P
