Every moisturizer I use causes irritation and rash, the rash is unresponsive to steroids, what do I do?

hell. I would encourage you to return to your Dermatologist. There are other potential causes including an infection with yeast or bacteria, a contact allergy or other causes. Steroids are not always the answer. Stay skintastic.
It is not uncommon to have sensitive and itchy skin after resurfacing. Your dermatologist should exclude contact allergy but try either pulsed dye laser or LED lights as they can sometimes help.
from my experience generally this settles gradually.
