Redness on cheeks, chin, forehead, dry skin with occasional burning. How can I cure this?

Hi, my skin has recently been a big problem, its red on my cheeks, chin , and a little on my forehead . I also have acne prone skin. I usually have oily skin, but right now its very dry, and it sometimes even burns. Also when you look at it closer, it looks like its kind of burnt, so I was wondering what I could do to make it go away. Please and thank you

redness on the face is probably an irritant /allergic reaction to any thing that you must have applied on face. kindly check if you have applied any new cream, makeup, or anything on your face just few days before the rash.
i would suggest using anything on the face for the time being. wash wit plain water, apply moisturizer like cetaphil or sebamed, mild potency steroid cream twice a day for 4-5 days. this should take care. also try to find out the causative agent and stay away from it in the future.
i hope this answered your question. feel free to contact me for further queries.
