Sometimes it is hard to decide what the difference is between Acne and Rosacea. As a Certified Acne Specialist, I can help you decide and treat both. You can not treat them the same because they may look the same, but they are not the same. Take a look at how they are different.

Demographics: It can be found in people of all ages, even babies. I have treated people from 8 to 60.
Symptoms: Blackheads, whiteheads, papules, cysts, and nodules.
Quality of life : Low self-esteem, depression, hide from social events, dark spots, pigmentation and scarring.
Location : Face and eyes. Redness may extend to the forehead, neck, chest or upper back

Second stage will be acne-like breakouts, very sensitive skin, burning or stinging skin, more broken blood vessels and patches of dry skin. Third stage will be a thickening of the skin on the nose chin, forehead, cheeks and ears. More distended blood vessels with bumpy skin texture will appear. Fourth stage will be ocular rosacea where eyes become dry, red, watery with a sand like feeling in the eye; vision my blur and distended blood vessels can be seen on the eyelid. Cysts may even form inside the eyelid. Your eyes become very uncomfortable.
