Well, I think it's Lupus Erythematosus because It appears on the face in a pattern that looks like a butterfly.
Rosacea , as it's a butterfly rash associated with rhinophyma ...
The correct answer is Systemic lupus erythematosus and one of it's symtoms is Skin rash -- a "butterfly" rash over the cheeks and bridge of the nose affects about half of those with SLE. The rash gets worse when in sunlight. The rash may also be widespread.
