Hi.

Betnovate is a steroid based ointment. It is generally recommended for a short term use as it has a number of side effects on skin if used for a long period of time. Also, using it for pimples and scars is concerned it is better to use other medicated ointments and oral medications for a better result. Hence, you should first consult a Skin specialist and get evaluated.

You can apply Clindamycin and Benzoyl peroxide containing ointment. Wash your face with Salicylic acid containing face wash. Apply ice over the pimples. Eat more of fresh vegetables and fruits. Avoid oily and spicy foods. Drink plenty of water. Do regular exercise.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Honey Arora, Dentist
