What is the cause and permanent solution for dryness and rashes on the T-zone of the face ?

been experiencing skin rashes on the T-zone area on my face, particularly between my eye brows all the way to the sides of my nose. It always starts with dryness around the area, and dandruff-like on my eye brows and patches of dry skin will be formed on the sides of my nose. Been applying steroid cream to reduce the redness but this problem will just come back again. What causes this and is there a permanent solution?

It looks like eczema. Exact cause for it is unknown, but mostly it is atopic.
Feeling too hot or too cold, exposure to certain household products like soap or detergent, or coming into contact with animal dander may cause an outbreak. Upper respiratory infections or colds may also be triggers. Stress may cause the condition to worsen.
So avoid stress.
Prevent dry skin by taking warm (not hot) showers or baths. Use a mild soap or body cleanser. Prior to drying off, apply an effective emollient to your wet skin.
Avoid scratching the rash.
Apply soothing lotion like cetaphil.
Eating right, light activity, and adequate sleep will help you stay healthy, which can help prevent flares.
Take care.
Best regards,
