What causes whiteheads on the face?

I have tiny whiteheads on nose and face. From there went to scaly skin and then itchy red patches with it. Dermatologist gave cortocosteroid and called it dermatitis. Said not to use unlesss I had an outbreak. It cleared the rash up. 2 days later the whiteheads came back lots of them, specially on nose and face what is this?

HI
Well come to HCM
This could be blocking of skin pores with the sebaceous material and this is happening due to poor hygienic care of skin, and this later may get infection and turns to dermatitis, take care for hygiene continue the medicines, if this is not added with antibiotic then try Tab Amoxicillin 500 mg three times in day take care.
