Question: I have these red blotched on my face in both cheek areas that have become more pronounced and when I use a over the counter steroid cream in the morning, they get somewhat better but reappear later in the day. Never had skin issues before and now at age 61 it just started happening.

Hello dear
Welcome to HCM and thanks for the query
I understand your concern and sorry to hear about your problem

Your symptoms could be due to allergic reaction (Urticaria, dermatitis), weather changes (cold and dry whether).

It will disappear generally in 7-10 days.

If it will not resolves then you should require detailed investigations by dermatologist
