irritated, dry yet oily/ blk head prone skin = rosacea?

my derm and doc said that it doesn't look like rosacea, but the more i read info and see posts/pictures on these boards, the more I ponder. Yet my skin is extremely sensitive, where anything will irritate it seems. I have oily skin, yet it gets dry and can stay dry for a while...i was wondering if any of you who do in fact have rosacea, experience dry irritated skin...and if so do you also have oily skin w/ blk heads. I have read the blk heads usually dont accompany rosacea, but it seems like that is untrue.

Thank you

I have dry skin simply because i've never had oily skin, and I use finacea twice a day and I don't moisturize. I sometimes selectively moisturize with emu oil, but rarely. I don't have blackheads either. I would listen to your derm. You could just have sensitive skin.
