Dear Sir, I have black spots on my face and it becomes worse when I go out in sun light. I had been using Betnovate N since quite some years. If I stop using the betnovate N cream the situation is more worse. So it has become regular requirement to apply the cream. Please kindly suggest me how I can get red of this problem permenantely. 1. Discontinue betnovate N without much effect. 2. Remove dark spots on face permenantly. 3. Is laser treatment a good option. regards

Thanks for writing here.

It seems you are having some sun related black spots like freckles.

Betnovate n is a steroid used only for eczema.

It is not advised to apply on face.

Stop it completely.You can use a mild steroid like hydrocortisone for few days.This will avoid flare up which occurs after stopping betnovate.

Avoid sun as far as possible.Apply a good sunscreen at day time.

Such type of pigmentation can be treated by chemical peels,lasers etc.

You can consult a dermatologist for this and get treatment accordingly.

Hope this will help you.Take care.
