I don't think this is rosacea as that usually does not itch. It could be excema. I would try plain old vaseline as a moisturizer after cleansing with a very mild cleanser. I say vaseline because it does not have any other ingredients that will burn the skin. You can relplenish during the day. I would try this for a week and see if it helps.
