Rosacea is a common skin eruption of unknown cause. It commonly occurs in females between the age group of 30- 50 years of age. Most of the skin diseases require a sharp eye to come to the right diagnosis. Rosacea has to be differentiated from other skin conditions such as most commonly acne vulgaris, seborrhoeic dermatitis, perioral dermatitis, carcinoid syndrome, and lupus erythematosus. Perhaps the most common potential diagnostic confusion is between rosacea and acne vulgaris, owing to the presence of pustules and papules in both conditions. Comedones are the primary distinguishing feature between acne vulgaris and rosacea. Comedones do not occur in rosacea.
