Skin problems. urgent

Can anyone tell me what is this with my skin? Its dry, and covered with flakes or scales or dead skin I'm not sure. I have hypothyroidism, just borderline, so since one month while taking meds, my cheeks and chin get redder then usual. I'm having this since past Nov, when I stopped using steroids for acne since 4 years. Please help me. Is this curable

Greetings. You probably have acne rosacea. This is a treatable condition. You Weill need to see a qualified dermatologist near you and need a course of oral retinoids under guidance of the doctor. Even short course of anti biotics will help. For maintenance you'll need to use certain creams for few weeks. Hope this helps. Further queries may be sent on follow up messaging.
