Rosacure worked ok for me, it took 3-4 weeks to start working.

Whenever some smart a** says "oh you've had too much sun", I politely inform them that it's a medical condition. And if I'm really in a snotty mood, I proceed to tell them they should probably stop and think the next time before they open thier mouth. I'm lucky I guess, mine isn't as bad as others. I've tried creams that didn't help so I just leave it go. If it starts to break out I use acne creams other wise the only other thing I use is aloe.

Mull, as a skincare therapist, I deal with this all the time!  It can be so frustrating for my clients, but there is something you can try!
  While there isn't an "over night" cure, I would suggest finding a good esthetician in your area that can offer you red LED light therapy.  The light therapy helps to reduce inflammation and can help reduce the symptoms you're having.  Some spas offer this service with a facial or alone, although I would recommend your first session with a calming facial as well.  We charge an average of $75 for facials and $20-30 for light therapy. It takes about 30 minutes and a series of these sessions can really help you! 
  If the redness still isn't going down, have you tried a mineral makeup, such as bare escentuals or glo minerals?  Mineral makeup is all natural and literally "takes the red out".  I would definitely try it, it will change your life!!!!!

My oldest son has it. For awhile they had him on beta blockers ( don't know why). He seems to cope fairly well
with it. However if you put a strip thermometer on his cheeks the temperature is always way over 100 degrees.
I think it's a little easier for a man to deal with....
