The two are rather easy to confuse, since they have similar symptoms of blackheads, whiteheads and nose pimples, however, there is a way to tell the two apart.
As its name indicates, acne rosacea is characterized by red and inflamed skin, and the nose might appear enlarged. It is also not really a type of acne. It’s more of a skin condition.

Furthermore, the more you invest in your facial hygiene, you will significantly reduce the chances of suffering for breakouts. Remember, keeping your nose unblemished and impurity-free should be no skin off your nose.
