rosacea and treatment ??

Hiya! I went to a dermatologist to have a mole checked out (which is fine ) but she told me that I have rosacea. Now I've noticed redness on my cheeks and neck when I get flustered (didn't know I had to strip nekkid for a total body check lol) or over exert myself but it never bothered me.

She came me a script for a cream to use and gave me some samples of it. The product is Finacea. Has anyone used it? The doctor said to watch out for a burning tingling feeling but the insert says that it could cause pustules. Since my rosacea isn't constant, I'm not sure I want to chance causing my skin to break out in order to fix something thats not really broken!

Also, it says to apply this 2x a day, and not to cover it with anything, does that mean I can't put make up on over it? I use mineral makeup.
