2. Burning and Tingling
This is another symptom that is all too easy to mistake with regular acne: burning and tingling.
If you have rosacea, then the reddened area will very often feel painful and as though it is burning. Again, this is a little different from the pain caused by spots and you might be able to notice the difference if you observe carefully
Is the pain coming from individual spots, or does it seem to be covering the entire area? Does it get worse and better as spots come and go? Does it accompany itching?
These clues can give you a better concept of where the pain is coming from and whether you have regular acne, rosacea, or a combination of both.
