I can not understand why your doctor recommended betnovate cream on facial skin. And that which is acne prone skin.

I do not prescribe betnovate ,even if steroid is required for facial skin. As it is moderately potent, it produces many side effects..atrophy,depigmentation, telangiectasia,acneiform eruptions..etc

Anyways,you have understood now and you have stopped to use betnovate cream...well.

Now, if you have acne lesions, apply clindamycine gel. And take minocycline cap 50 mg daily...till you feel better.

I hope you got my answer .
