Is this Rosacea?

My skin condition started about 3 years ago. I didn't have any last year but it started again.
After I get sun exposure, my nose, upper lip and chin area get really red and itchy. The next day it starts flaking.
I put tons of sun screen, so I know it's not sunburn.
When I got sunburn, flaking or peeling doesn't start until several days later. This makes my skin flaky the next day and it's so itchy and burning.
When I went to a doctor, he told me it's probably Rosacea and he prescribed me some cream for it. It didn't help me at all.
