Hi Your skin got addicted to that cream as it contains steroid. Steroids should never be used without skin specialist's advise and monitoring. You are probably developed steroid induced rosacea due to prolonged use if steroid cream. It is a treatable condition and your skin needs to be sort of de-addiction from steroid. Please do not ruin your skin further by self medication and Visit a dermatologist for better management. Best regards Dr Vijay Adhe, Eternis Skin & Hair Clinic, Pune.
