Skin condition, rash and blisters

Hi. I’ve a question regarding my niece’s skin problem. She is a 7-years old. She has developed red patches of skin on her cheek, chin and around nose. The affected area of her cheek is very dry. I brought her to a doctor who prescribed two creams, mezoderm(betamethasone) and gentamicin-akos which made things far worse.
Then at the pharmacy I was advised to use ftorokart(also a cream with triamcinolone) for my niece’s face. After a few uses of the cream, I’ve seen some noticeable improvement in her skin condition since she started to use it. It took the redness out of her nose. But she still has rash and blisters on her face. I took photos of her face in case it might be helpful for you to identify the reason for her skin condition. Here are the photos of hers:

Would you mind helping us to identify what caused this skin condition?
