Hi Rajan,
You seem to have developed an irritant reaction( contact irritant dermatitis) to the creams prescribed. To treat the same, withhold application of these creams and apply mometasone cream as advised by your dermatologist. Mometasone will reduce the redness, dryness and peeling of skin. Once the skin regains its normal texture, stop its application. Hope this answers your query. Take care.
