Itching and red patches on face

Since last 15 years I am using elocon cream on my face. Recently I came to know it is steroid whenever I stop using it I have severe itching and red patches on face. So how can I come out of it. Do I continue with cream or stop using it. Please suggest me something.

    Welcome to medimetry
    Thanks for the query
    well applying too much of steriod on the face from a long times cause sideeffects like itching and redness of face
    Avoid exoposure to sunlight and dust particles
    Apply tacroz .03% only in night time
    Take levocetrezine 10mg (an antihistaminic ) for itching twice in a day
    Take care
