Both are grammatically correct but they don’t mean the same.

 

(a) Confused about-(like to confuse someone about something)  means to cause someone to be puzzled or bewildered about something. 

 

Ex: wish you wouldn’t confuse me about those things.

(b) confused with – (like to confuse someone with someone else) means to mix someone up with someone else; to mistake someone or something with something else.

 

Ex:  I’m afraid you have confused me with my brother.
