I am using 0.1% betamethasone for 4 months, i just know that I am pregnant in the first month, does the drug have any adverse effect on the fetus?
Probably OK: It's hard to prove any medicine is 100% safe in pregnancy. If it's not essential you could stop it for 1st trimester.

If your doctor is unable to figure out what it is, they may recommend a dermatologist (skin specialist) who may be able to help. ...Read more
