Hi Nada,
Betnovate-N is not a treatment option of acne or dark spot. It has many side effects in chronic use on face. side effects are like...
i) Rosacae-persistent redness on cheek.
ii) Hypertrichosis- excessive prominent hair might be appear on face.
iii) Thining of skin and telangiectasia-skin may become thin and appearance of some visible veins
iv) Acne-Pimples may erupt/ aggravate after withdrawal of it.
You should remember that facial skin is a delicate and sensitive part of your skin. you must take care of it. Never try anything on face without consult of a physician.
