Urgent. skin

Hi. I had acne since I was 14. In 2011 I started using faceclin gel on my face. Then acnestar and few other for acne. Daily. For almost 5 years. In Jan I stopped using it as I was tired of using such tropical. But then, I have dry skin, whiteheads, burning, itching, red rash on cheeks, chin, forehead, the places where I had applied the steroids the most. My skin is very sensitive. This is my current pic. If it's rosacea, will it go away? What do I exactly have. Please help me

Hello, yes if you have applied topical steroid then you might be suffering from steroid induced rosacea. You will need to consult a dermatologist immediately as most of damage may turn out to be long term. Regards, Dr. Shruti Jadhav Devershi, Sólskin Professional Dermacare, Kharadi, Pune.
