Do clotrimazole and betamethasone dipropionate cream treat acne?

Absolutely Not. This medication will treat inflammation and a fungal infection. Totally wrong for acne. See dr friedlander's answer for better detail.
No!!! Topical corticosteroids will suppress the immune response, and enhance the production of sebum. Systemically, this class of meds actually causes acne. The only barrier to your being treated effectively is a dysfunctional health care system. I start with cheap topical clindamycin; systemic tetracycline works for tougher cases; dermatologists must rx "the big guns" which are extremely good.

A. A rash that has been treated with all these therapies is very difficult to make suggestions for further therapies without seeing the rash. I would have expected a typical diaper dermatitis due to yeast to have cleared with the ketoconazole. I would be hesitant to use a stronger steroid under a diaper. I would suggest making an appointment with your pediatrician or a dermatologist. Emergency room doctors are generally not use to treating diaper rashes. Rashes just have to be seen to diagnose accurately and treat appropriately.
Too much medication. After all that medication it may be time to try an old fashion method. First wash the baby with soap and water. Use a hair dryer to make sure the baby is meticulously dry. Then leave her bottom open to the air. If you have a goose neck lamp leave it over the diaper area for 20 minutes intervals.
