Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Corticosteroids should never be applied without a doctor's advise. Also, there are certain steroids which should never be applied on the face.

If you could send me photos and details, I will be able to give you proper suggestions. Till then, do not use anything on your own. It does more harm than good.
