Hi. I will do my best to advise. However, please note that this does not substitute an in-person consultation with a doctor.Can you upload pictures?
I do not have the ability to upload pictures.
Do you remember any insect bites? When did you start the betamethasone?

No insect bites that I can remember. Checked bedding for bed bugs-none. I just used the betamethasone one evening.
Sorry the image is out of focus. Can you try again in brighter lighting.?
The picture again is a bit out of focus. But from what i can see and your history, this is most consistent with an insect bite reaction. All bite reactions look the same, so I can't really say what might have bit you. It is too early to assess response with the betamethasone as you only used it on one evening. Generally it needs to be applied twice a day for a week, before the reaction resolves. Please try that and get back to me if it has not faded by then.Hope that answers your question.
