Post Question for those with rosacea/facial redness

I was recently diagnosed with rosacea. Doc wasn't 100% since there's no sure way to test, but looked like I had the symptoms. I have always thought that I had really sensitive skin(which I do) and my allergies caused it. But this year I was really sensitive to sunlight.
But, it's not just parts of my face that are red. My whole face and neck are red except right underneath my eyes. And I don't really seem to have any triggers except really spicy foods and and alcohol sometimes. But I think a lot of people that don't have rosacea get a red from alcohol and spicy foods. Some days it is worse than others, but nothing really seems to "trigger" it.

I baically look like I have a mild sunburn all of the time and my face has progressively become more sensitive to sunlight.

Anyone else have similar symptoms? If so, what can I do about the redness? Dr. gave me some scripts that he said will take a while to work. Only the second day i have been using them and it seems worse than ever now. Which i guess is possible until my skin gets used to them. Are there any natural things I can do to reduce the redness?
