    I assume you mean type 2 as subtype 2 (Papulopustular) and subtype 1 (Erythematotelangiectatic) or ETR which are the old school classification of rosacea originated with the NRS in 2002. The new classification is phenotypes. Some dermatologists continue to classify rosacea as subtypes since they are not keeping up and rely on old school papers and practice with old school methods. Now the NRS has updated to phenotypes. You can see why the phenotype classification is superior to the subtype classification.

    A rosacea flare up is "a more intense outbreak of redness, bumps or pimples."

    A flush is a "transient, episodic redness of the face and neck caused by certain diseases, ingestion of certain drugs or other substances, heat, emotional factors, or physical exertion."

    You can see that these two, a rosacea flare or a flush, are totally different. A flush can exacerbate a rosacea flareup and is why many seek flushing avoidance and is the topic of this thread started by Ryohiku. A significant number of posts here at RF are about flushing avoidance. Some confuse flushing with rosacea, which is like confusing pimples with rosacea. Flushing is a sign/symptom of rosacea, just like pimples are a sign/symptom. Not all rosacea sufferers flush, nor do all rosacea sufferers have pimples.

    If one has phenotype 1, which is obviously a much better classification than the only school subtypes which neglected flushing as a subtype, one usually also suffers from phenotype 2 or possibly phenotype 4. Not all rosaceans suffer with flushing, but usually flushing is the differentiating distinguishing sign indicating a diagnosis of rosacea. You can learn more about diagnosing rosacea here.
