Betnovate creme contains a corticosteroid which is used for a variety of skin conditions.Most of the time pimples in pregnancy are self limiting as they are hormone dependant.All forms of steroidal preparations are best avoided in pregnancy.Use a daily face wash and avoid handling the pimples.This is sufficient in most cases.
