I unfortunately did not listen and overused it for even longer than prescribed. now every time I try and use any face products on my face I get a rash outbreak after trieng the product for about 2-3 days.Pleas e advise

Strong topical steroid cream such as Advantan applied to the skin can lead to thinning and pigment changes of the skin if used for long periods. One can also develop and allergy to topical steroids particularly with Betnovate.  So it is possible that you have developed a contact allergy to the Advantan cream and so if absolutely necessary try another topical steroid instead of Advantan.
