Hi...dear marisasritha..,
Thanks for choosing HCM.,
Propysalic nf6...It is Betamethasone(Steroid).,
and Salicylic acid 6% is keratolytic and
antiinflammatory....Starting it will give very good looking skin.,
after withdrawal produce papules with redness of skin..(Steiod acne)
So it is very dangerous in the face area..ok.,
good anti acne products available..,
1) use 1% Clindamycin daily 2 times..,
2) Tab..Isotretinoin 20 mg daily for 2 months..,
ok...good luck

Dermatologist Dr. Udhay Sidhu's  Response

Please do NOT use propysalic nf for your face.It will do more damage than good and it will be hard to remove the damage caused.
It is a topical steroid and keratolytic and should not be used on face.
It is very important to understand that you can not apply anything on the face until you meet your dermatologist
If nothing else has worked you can try oral isotretinoin, under your dermatologist supervision, who will require certain blood investigations and asses if you are the right candidate for the medicine and explain in detail the precautions to be taken when on the medicine.

Take Care
