Thanks for the query. You probably have topical steroid damaged facies. Betnovate is ultra potent steroid and not recommended for usage on the face. Long term usage makes the skin fragile, thin and prone to redness and burning. A proper treatment can be done with your cooperation and it may need few months to achieve that.
Next Steps
Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation.
Health Tips
Apply Sunscreens regularly.
