Brief Answer:
Mometasone cream and moisturising cream

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have gone through your complaints and if I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like mometasone cream on the affected areas twice daily along with frequent and liberal application of a moisturising cream on the entire face 2-3 times in a day.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
