In brief: Sometimes

Desonide is a steroid and can attenuate allergic and inflammatory conditions of the facial skin.
Keto conazole is an anti-fungal and can be used for diagnosed treatment of facial fungus infections. Your dermatologist can assist you in diagnosis of your facial issues and recommend the best treatment.
