Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Doxylag contains doxicyclin ,its a antibiotic and has good effect in rosacea too.It is not a steroid and can be taken safely for long.Steroids are contraindicated in rosacea and in-fact it can aggravate rosacea.

There are other options for rosacea too like tacrolimus cream, metronidazole oint ,oral retinoids etc.
One thing which you should always use is a good spf sunscreen daily thrice.
