Please never ever use betnovate
or any other topical steroids
on your face
You will do more harm than good to yourself. Thinning of skin, photo sensitivity, itching, dryness..the list of side effects is long.
First get rid of the cream. Next apply emollients liberally over the next few weeks as the skin will become dry.
Once skin becomes normal start the anti acne
treatment of acne
depends on the stage and severity of the condition.
very good results can be obtained if you are under regular treatment- the duration of the treatment lasting from 6-9 months.
the problem of relapse occurs because most of the times either the medicines are not applied properly or not applied for the needed duration or the treatment is stopped midway or irregular.
application at night for six to nine months is needed for good results as that is the time needed for microcomedones population to reduce to low level
please visit the nearest dermat who will decide the stage and chalk out a management plan for you.
also one thing you need to strictly follow is that you need to continue the medicines for atleast 6-9 months if you want to get rid of acne for quite a long long duration.
