Doctor: Hello, thanks for your health query on ATD.Betamethasone is not indicated to be used over face except in very severe conditions that too for a very short duration. It may produce thinning of skin. Also, there may visible blood vessels over face if used for long.Please see your dermatologist he will advice you a suitable cream for your face.Hope this helped you.
