Yes and no: Yes, that is a steroid cream and no, i would not recommend you use it on your face without seeing someone. Steroid creams should only be used on your face carefully as the skin there is sensitive and thinner that other places.You can sometimes cause more problems by using steroids on your face. Good luck!
