Right, I was diagnosed with Rosacea last year even though I've had my symptoms for a good 3 years. Basically I had quite bad Acne for about 6-7 years and it cleared up. After about a year of amazing clear skin I developed horrible skin texture under my eyes and around my cheeks. The pores had enlarged quite drastically and my cheeks appeard saggy, I also aquired quite bad dark circles which will NOT go away. After about another year the skin on my cheeks and nose turned more and more red and this is where I'm at now. These pictures were taken a good 6 months ago and quite honestly the skin has got redder. And info would be great!

I have SB and PF. This doesn't look like either. Looks like millia. My SB is flaky, itchy and a little painful. If you believe it's SB try washing your face with Classic Clean Head and Shoulders. Lather and leave on your face for 5 minutes first. Try only once a week.

I have what you have and have not been able to figure out what it is.
I've gotten the dark circles under my eyes too which creates this weird contrast between my red cheeks and the under eye skin.
You don't seem to have pimples, pustules, dialated blood vessels or spider veins either, which are symptoms of rosacea so..?
