I am 23 years old male and have disastrous history of eczema since childhood. 6 years ago i started having acne on face and i visited a dermatologist which gave some medicines which caused me to develop big scars on face which used to get swollen up and yellow liquid used to ooze out of them and it felt very itchy every time i used to fell like scratching them.
I consulted many dermatologist in my city and each first used to provide steroids medicines (for some time like 2 weeks) to reduce the the swelling and the oozing along with some moisturiser. They worked pretty good only till i was taking steroid medicines after that the problem kept reoccurring and each time it reoccurred it covered and spread over more area. This continued for like 3 years till i decided it was enough and then i discontinued the medical treatment started using almond oil on my face which reduced the itching quite well and also reduced the swelling and oozing of the yellow liquid.
But the problem is that my face skin have darkened in these years quite a lot and whenever i try to use anything to reduce the darkness like hydroquinone or any other medicines even the sun screen my eczema starts again i have attached the present condition of face. The color of face is much more dark than my legs or my hands. One thing i noticed was when i was using steroid for treating the eczema they also were improving my skin tone and getting it even. I steroid can improve my skin color I would like to continue the steroid medicine because i seriously think nothing here is helping me. And what can be possible problems that long term use of steroids can cause. I really don't think anything is working I heard that you shouldn't use steroid for long peroid but I dont think anything else is working.
Any help would be appreciated. TIA
