Skin allergy urgent

Is this topical steroid withdrawal I'm having? I had used steroids on face for almost 6 years for acne. A mild one. But the areas affected currently are the places where I used to apply the most. I stopped in January completely. Since then I had on and off redness and dry skin in beginning, since may, this is what I have. Dry crusty skin, below it red raw skin. Is this my skin healing or rosacea? Please help.

Hi! It looks like an infection. It's not skin healing. You can use a mild cleanser and a sunscreen  You can book an appointment to see me in my clinic.
