Rosacea during pregnancy

Hi, I'm also 26, pregnant and have rosacea! My skin has gone crazy since being pregnant its pretty depressing.
Before being pregnancy it was mostly just my nose that was affected and I used to use hydrocortisone cream which helped reduce the lumpy bumpiness. I've also used clyindmin(or something like that) and bp (which gave me horrible nausea as a side effect). My mum also has Rosacea and at the moment is on long term antibiotics as it was also causing her to get lots of cysts on hers eyelids. I'm not keen to go down that route though.

You have my sympathies, its a horrible thing to have, i have pretty much resigned myself to having to keep trying loads of different products/routines as I don't have much faith in acne type medicine helping long term. I hope you find something that helps you.

Hi everyone
Very new to this, I'm 11 weeks pregnant I'm 26 and was diagnosed with rosacea about a month ago.
Now all I can think about is this condition and sadly it's affecting my pregnancy. I should b enjoying it but I'm not.
I just want to give birth so I can start oral medication. I feel so cruel and selfish, so just wondering if anyone else is in the same boat as me or if you have this horrid skin condition I'd luv to talk x
