Rosacea really getting me down

Wondered if anyone else is suffering from rosacea and has any advice or tips?

I've got a 4 month old baby and a 3 year old, and was diagnosed with rosacea just before I got pregnant last year.

Wasn't able to take anything for the rosacea when I was pregnant....just seen a dermatologist who prescribed an oral antibiotic and said it may / may not help. My main skin problem is severe flushing which now leaves a permanent redness especially on one cheek. The other thing she mentioned was laser treatment - has this worked for anyone?

Am struggling to cope with my horrible skin at the moment as well as 2 little ones and am scared its going to really get me down. There are already days I don't feel like going out cos I'm so self-concious

Any tips or advice would be fantastic

There was a thread about this last week- I'll see if I can find and bump it for you.
