Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Diprovate rd is betamethasone lotion and continuous use causes many effect as skin become very sensitive as in your case . It also lower the immunity and many systemic side effects .
But don't be desperate as take Vitamin C tablet twice in day for at least 6 month without any side effect . This will not only increase immunity but skin will glow and normal flora will restore .
For local application use broad spectrum sunscreen lotion.
Hope I have answered your question . If further any question I will help.
Good luck. Dr. HET
