    Default Is this rosacea, or something else? (face pics)

    I'm trying to treat the complexion on my face, and would like to know if indeed it's what I suspect it to be - I'm thinking either rosacea or psoriasis.

    Here are pics in its flared up state:


    Some other information that may help determine what it is:
    - Sometimes it's completely dorment and sometimes it gets flared up.
    - When it gets flared up, it's usually by stress, and/or by dehydration.
    - I have a genetically heightened risk of psoriasis (22.4% vs an 11.4% average).
    - Whatever it is, it only occurs on certain regions of my face.

    Thank you all! Determining what this is would greatly help me.

    It looks and sounds from your description like seborrhoeic dermatitis.

    It isn't possible to give a proper diagnosis over the Internet and I suggest that you visit a healthcare professional for confirmation.

    In the mean time, you could try applying an antifungal cream to the outbreaks. I won't do any harm and may do a lot of good. Do keep applying for seven days even if it appears to have cleared.

    Disclaimer: Please note that any treatments suggested by me are exactly that: suggestions only. You are advised to satisfy yourself that any products are suitable for your use and if you are in any doubt, obtain local recommendations from a health professional.
