Can you tell me is betamethasone valerate/neomycin good to remove acne marks?

The acute lesions will probably be made worse by the betamethasone. Scientific acne rx starts with benzoyl peroxide as tolerated, and if this does not clear you, getting prescription-strength rx from your physician. Best wishes. ...Read more
