Hi, "Life". I just looked up the drug info on DesOwen. Click the "Resources" tab above, then click the link for "MedLine Plus", then click the link for "Drug Information", then go into the "D's", then click "DesOwen".
Looks like this topical can indeed cause reddening, etc. in some people. You could cease for now & talk to your dr, right? Maybe there's some other ointment that causes fewer problems in fewer people you could try?
FYI, during the many years of rashes I had, before I was Dx'ed, I was given various topicals, with similar results. I had annular (circular) lesions on my arms & torso. Well, some of the oinments burned, some itched, and none worked to fade out the lesions. I gave up. But since your problem is facial, I know it matters more... GOOD LUCK! Sympathetically, Vee
