I have rosacea from 3 years now. Everything I have tried doesn't work. Though its better than before now but the redness will not go.

Avoiding trigger factors, practising proper skin care and following prescribed long-term medication can help successfully manage rosacea. Rosacea is characterized by flare-ups and remissions. Oral and topical medications may be prescribed to reduce facial redness and to treat the boils and pimples. Antibiotics help treat rosacea by anti-inflammatory action and inhibiting cathelicidin production. To reduce extensive redness and to remove visible blood vessels laser treatments may be used. Once the condition improves topical medications may be used to maintain remission.
