betamethasone on little bumps?

Sooooo,

I have these very acne-ish patches of skin on both sides of my cheeks really close to my ears and temples.

The area have a few pimples but mostly is oily and covered densely with tiny bumps. When I squeeze (bad I know) yellow bacteria-smelling stuff comes out.

I have applied some betamethasone on them to try to get some skin layers off, but I doubt it will help very much.

What else do you recommend?
RetinA?

I have tried: exfoliators, anti-pore clogging wash, salicylic acid, triclosan, benzoyl peroxide, spectrogel. None of them worked because the bumps are underground.

Help would be appreciated muchly!

Re: betamethasone on little bumps?

Pls dun use betamethasone on ur little bumps. They r not for pimples and they are strong steroids that can thin your skin. This thinnning by the way is not reversible! That is why doctors only prescribe it when u have maybe eczema or something like that. But definitely for Acne.

For acne just use benzoyl peroxide or retin-A if u want the skin to shed and reveal/dry the pimple.

Good lUck

I have something v. different and my GP had trouble diagnosing it - therefore you really ought to ask a doctor or dermatologist type person to give you advise in person so that it is correctly diagnosed.

I know how frustrating and anxious my skin makes me so I sympathise with your symptons.
