yes Rosacea can affect the ears. I also have rosacea. Most doctors and derms do not know much about rosacea and the best treatments. Check out these sites for the latest treatment and support. I think you will find some help. http://rosacea.ii.net/toc_js.htm and www.drnase.com. Dr. Nase is the leading expert on rosacea currently and has written a wonderful book that every rosacean to get. He is currently putting together clinical trials for a new drug that may control all aspects of the rosacea. Hope this helps!
