Hi welcome to Health care magic forum .You are diagnised as a patient of nephrotic syndrome, so the moon face is the side effect of nephrotic syndrome, and acne is due to your age as you are in puberty as you said you still studying.
you are using omnacortil it has side effects of swelling of the body, but it should be generalised swelling, and not the moon face.
It appears that the omnaacortil you are using is not showing effect on the disease.
I advise you to consult the doctor who is treating you for nephrotic syndrome for alternative treatment. For acne you can consult a dermatologist to have medicines for only local application, as the systemic drugs may exacerbate the nephrotic syndrome.
Wishing for a quick recovery and thanks for calling.
