Are cetirizine, betamethasone effective in curing skin infections?

HI My name is Jurme I m from Bhutan. I Study in Thailand. Recently I ve been having some sort of rashes or insect bite all over my upper body and some part of my lower body. I ve applied some sort of cream that I ve bought from a local drug store and it helped a little. But since yesterday I have a different kind of infection on my left forearm it looks like an insect bite not sure if its a mosquito, bedbug or an ant...but it is really becoming more infectious and itching...I ve shown to a pharmacist in alocal grug store and they gave me a cream and a tablet... Tablet - Cetirizine 10mg Cream - no idea on name but it s written Each 1g consists Betamethasone (as Valerate) 1mg Neomycin (as Sulfate) 3.3mg Am I taking the right Precautions??? Is there any other way??? Thank You For Your Time And Help
