Should I still use topivate?

Hi I’ve been using topivate for three weeks now . At first I used it because my lips were swelling up . It helped but now I get rashes with little lumps that turn red . I get these rashes and lumps on my hands, behind knees and elbows. Should I apply topivate on these rashes ? Or are they caused by topivatae ? Please help. URGENT!!

Topivate is a potent steroid cream called Betamethasone, so using it continuously for 3 weeks may result in side-effects. In addition to this you may even have an allergy to this cream, so continued use may make the rash worse. You should discuss treatment of your rashes with the GP, and may need to perform a Patch Test to see is you have developed a contact allergy to this cream.
