Rashes On Neck, Itching, Red Bumps Under Eyes. Used Steroid Creams. Should I Complete The Course?

hi, for the last 3 months i have been getting a rash on my neck thats itchy and has little red lumps and also on my eyes under both and on both lids that starts off red and stingy and then dries out making me look like im wrinkly. The day before the rash appeared i was stung by a wasp on the foot maybe it has nothing to do with it but i said i would mention it. i have tried various steroid creams that do not help and i have also taken steroid tables that worked brilliantly but as soon as i completed the course the rash was back and im afraid to be taking them long term. Please can you help as I am a beauty therapist and have to be able to wear make up
