My pcp thinks I have rosacea??????

I been battling acne since age twenty six. I had it completely under control the last 5 years taking ortho-tricyclen and using Retin-A once a day.

(One thing though, I do blush easy and the retin-A does make me red after I put it on. This lasts maybe a few hours.)

My acne started coming back last October along with scaly skin on my ears and hairline.

My pcp thinks it's rosacea and exzema. But I told her the retin-A is what makes me red.

Does anyone else out there have rosacea???
