Hi.all the symptoms are due to usuage of steriod over a long time on face.sudden withdrawl of steriod may cause dryness and swellimng of face.taper it off slowly.start to use betnovate-c along with vaseline for twice daily for 5 days.then use it once daily for 5 days .vaseline in the night.alternate day for 10 days.then weekly twice for two weeks and weekly once for three weeks and thus taper it completely after that
