brown, leathery rash?

I have had steroid rosacea on my face after using steroid creams for eczema for years. I recently got frustrated with eczema on my arms, and used betametasone dipropionate there. After a week I got a reddish spot on one arm. I began diminishing the doses of cream over the next week. The red spot was not itchy but expanded. Then I got one on the other arm in the same place. It got larger, too. Eventually the places began to be raw and felt like I had burned myself. I stopped the corisone cream. The places then turned brown and leathery but continue to grow. There is also a ***** bump on one arm under the brown, leathery rash. Any idea what I might have or what to do about it?
