Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
No its not wise to use this cream as it contains a potent steroid.
Ideally you could use a cream like metrogyl-p or t-bact ointment.
Do dressing daily after cleaning with warm water and betadine liquid.
Consult a general physician in person for further evaluation and management.
Best regards.

Betnovate c is a potent steroid containing cream which is not indicated for scratches/abrasions.
Instead u can use neosporin powder or soframycin cream to prevent infection in the open areas.
Regular dressing may help.
