Hello, First of all, stop applying cream that chemist has given you. You should not rely on chemist advice because he is not a doctor . H e has given you a steroid cream, which is very harmful if used on skin without doctors advice. You can read articles on internet regarding " SIde effects on steroid cream on facial skin". For your current problem, take care of following points: 1. apply sunscreen, when ever you go outdoors. Use physical protection in form of cap, umbrella to guard your skin against sun. 2. avoid scratching or pricking face areas 3. use good moisturiser, when ever there is itchy sensation over skin. 4. Consult a dermatologist in person so that they can prescribe you cream and suggest treatment to reduce blemishes and improve skin tone as well
