I have suffered from rosacea on my nose and cheeks for over 20 years and this condition has been completely cleared by a supermarket skin care product. I have found that the Garnier 'Stop' cleanser and day and night creams (in orange packaging here in Australia) cleared my rosacea after only using them for a couple of days and my skin now looks the clearest and best it has ever looked in my life. Not bad for a woman going on 60! I am so pleased.

Oral oxytetracycline (an antibiotic) can be prescribed by your doctor to treat both acne and rosacea. Another good prescription product is topical Differin. If you are female taking an anti-androgen contraceptive pill like Dianette (Diane35 in the USA) can help.
Eucerin make a Redness Relief cleanser and moisturiser which is widely available instores and online. They also make a cleanser for impure skin which is compatible with acne medication.
