Less Expensive Treatment for Rosacea

I have been diagnosed with mild Rosacea and prescribed Finacea. I found this to be very expensive and understand I will have to use it forever. Does anyone have experience with treating Rosacea with something less expensive?

I don't know about the comparative costs, but I have been using Metrogel for my rosacea for years with good results.

I have rosacea too. I use Tea Tree Oil soap from Trader Joe's ($3.50 for 2 good size bars). I think it has helped. You can use very diluted tea tree oil on your face also (it has antiseptic properties). Also, certain foods aggravate my rosacea,such as very hot and/or spicey foods, & alcohol. Sitting in the sun also aggravtes my rosacea. I never found that the creams (such as Metrogel) that the dermatologist recommended worked. For a while I was on a daily low dose antibiotic - I am not sure if that worked. One good thing is that my face has gotten better as I get older.
