    Red Blotches on Face

    I've had a symmetrical pair of red blotches about size of a nickle below either corner of my mouth for several years now. They're dry all year 'round, but the redness seems to decrease a bit in the summer. A few months ago they seemed to be getting larger so I went to a dermatoligist in the area. He diagnosed it as mild eczema and gave me a steriod cream to stop the inflammation. It worked fairly well for the week I was applying it, but when I stopped and switched to Elidel the blotches came back and then some (now my chin and forehead are also blotchy and dry).
    Does this sound like eczema to you? Has anyone out there had any luck treating a chronic condition like this without the constant use of steriods?
