NO NO NO: See a dermatologist. Eczema and urticaria are completely different. You left out any clues to the true diagnosis. Neither eczema nor chronic urticaria are allergies. The treatments are completely different. Do not use clobetasol on your face. It may cause perioral dermatitis. You will be sorry if it does. It is rarely associated with cataracts and glaucoma if used on the face.
