Use an OTC topical steroid for a weeks

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr. kakkar (dermatologist). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.
You may use an OTC topical steroid cream e.g cortisone cream (contains hydrocortisone1%), twice daily for a week. It is the mildest of topical steroid and very safe for use on face.
