Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Taper down steroids and try just Lactocalamine lotion with Zinc
and if it doesn't subside try to visit dermatologist
She might be allergic to some source around.
Identify the specific food, pollen trees around or new detergent or soap and eliminate trigger factor.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
