Hi betnovate should not be used for long time for any makes the skin comprimised .it makes red.wrinckles may appear and acne may occur.stop betnovate first and then a moisteriser for few days until erythema disappears

Then apply benzyl peroxide if there are pimples.try to use it only once in the night time .sometimes peeling occurs if it is that case use a moisteriser before applying and apply BP for short time
