Is this a mild form of rosacea/ couperose?

http://i10.tinypic.com/6y14jmh.jpg

It is constant red underneath my eyes, and has a burning sensation.

Sometimes its worse than normal.

If i look better i can see red bloodvessels running underneath my skin.

I've been using accutane and BP gel in the past , my acne is controllable now( but still present).

What do you guys/girls think this is?

Ive tried to make a better photo's today:

That does not look the same as my rosacea does. When I have a flare up and my eye is involved it looks more like a small stye, only it hurts more and takes longer to go away.

Do you have rosacea on your face?

Ohh it's those annoying swelling red patches thingies. I have those too. I have heard they are a symbol of allergy?

I don't notice anything either. I wish my skin was as clear as that. I have huge red slashes under each eye. Doc says possibly eczema with change in weather or allergy induced from diet. Who the hell knows. He gave me hydrocortisone acetate 1% cream and told me good luck. Good grief.

I know, its pretty minor, but it feels really akward all the time, kinda like a sunburn, and if i exercise i have really red spots underneath my eyes that dont go away for about a day orso, same story with taking a warm shower.

mayb i'm over reacting but i just want to be on the safe side...i have a derm meeting in about 2 weeks for my acne check up. I will ask him about this minor thingy and see what he will say..

For all you people having worse skin problems outthere , take care!

I've came a long way, my face was mainly pimpels one year ago ,but tane cleared me up pretty nicely.

It's probably not rosacea - but that is a symptom of it (you have visible blood vessels and at least one broken capillary). They can be rid of very successfully by use of laser therapy (IPL I think?).
