Bad choice: This is a glucocorticoid and will relieve inflammation some at the cost of greatly enhancing the growth of the bacteria. You will make it worse. Glucocorticoids may be useful injected into a huge lesion, or during the flareup when Isotretinoin is begun. Please get some scientific treatment for your acne and remember it is not a lifestyle or hygiene relate disease.
