Hello,
What you are having is steroid induced rosacea. Steroid induced rosacea or dermatitis is an adverse effects of using steroids. Some patients develop steroid-induced rosacea within weeks of applying a topical steroid; others may not experience it for years.
Avoiding rosacea triggers, such as caffeine, spicy foods, and alcohol, also may help clear the skin. Also use of antibiotic creams, antihistaminics, sun screens and tacrolimus(available by prescription) helps but consultation of a dermatologist is required first.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hello Dcotor,  I was also used betnovate N cream for 4 yrs, but I stopped using it, I consulted by a Dermatologist. he told me to stop using it. but I told him if wont use that cream my face will be itching and will dry. He has given some of creams which i am using from 20 days. 1. Sungrace total(sunscreen lotion). 2 Episoft (cleansing lotion). 3 Elovera cream (before sleeping). 4 Derive-CMS Gel ( for pimples). 5 Cutizone cream (for redness - this cream used for only 3 days. now i am not using). and also given Vitamin E tablets.
           These all I am using regularly, but still my face is itching and drying everyday. Please advice why it is still not recover? what I am using is correct? I am deciding to stop using all the creams. Its very difficult  having a face like this and go to office. Please ahelp me what action to be taken.  Thanks
