Hi my gp said had roscea due to red face burning rozex topical cream burns using exzema cream oilatum and lots better could my gp of got wrong?
Possible: No one can be right all the time and some times one needs to see how a patient responds to medication trial to reach the right diagnosis.

Have sensitive and slightly red skin on my cheeks after using 0.2% betamethasone valerate cream on face to get rid of an excezma like break out ?
Stop using it.: Betamethasone is a strong steroid cream that should not be used on the face.

Try an otc Hydrocortisone cream to get rid of the rash, and if that doesn't work, see a dermatologist. ...Read more
