Interesting that there is this connection with these two diseases. Rosacea itself is often confused with acne. A rosacea diagnosis can be a blessing to a person who can't figure out why their acne just won't go away. With a minor rosacea problem it is often easy to control with a few lifestyle changes. Most of it can be covered in some cases with make up.
It is amazing to think that a person who just thinks they have a case of rosacea may one day find they have a disease as devastating as lupus.
