hi
u might have dermatitis
u must not use lobate cream as it is very strong cream and will damage ur skin
u need to consult dermatologist
till then ,apply good moisturizer lotion only
as it is dry and rough ,minimum chance of infection is there.
avoid direct sun exposure
drink more water and avoid any cosmetic procedure or cream over face.

General & Family Physician Dr. Bharath HS's  Response
Hi,
Lobate or any steroid creams should not be used if any infection is suspected. Hence, I would advise you that you consult your family doctor or a dermatologist to get the appropriate advice after a personal examination. Meanwhile, you can use calamine lotion if the skin is intact (not broken). Take care and regards.
