There are some papers indicating using mepacrine for the treatment of rosacea. One paper published in The Lancet, May 1952 written by Borrie Peter and another paper published in 1955.  Another paper mentions using mepacrine and chloroquine in combination to treat rosacea. [1] Scarlet Letters has an interesting article discussing using mepacrine and plaquenil in treating rosacea.
