In brief: There is hope

Several things to be done about this but it will take a doc.
Steroids can be helpful. Also, you probably should log things that you've eaten or drunk to see if you can correlate any of it to these outbreaks. Rosascea is characterized by intermittent relapses so nothing will make it go away forever.

In brief: Severe rosacea

See your dermatologist for treatment options during this severe worsening of the rosacea.
Also, confirm the diagnosis since rosacea less commonly affects the chest. There are many triggers to avoid, which are individualized (http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/rosacea).
