Response from Mary C. Smith, RN, MSN: Quite possibly you did have steroid rosacea, but if the problem recurs, you may want to visit a dermatologist to sort out the cause. For example, if you had persistent itching or redness that didn't improve with the steroid cream, you might be allergic to the drug itself or a component of the vehicle, such as a preservative.
