Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com. The side-effects of betnelan tablet are as follows:

  • Loss of skin atrophy.
  • Local white patches of deeply pigmented skin.
  • Dryness.
  • Irritation.
  • Nasal bleed.
  • Ulceration or perforation of the nasal septum.
  • Smell and taste disturbances.
  • Hoarseness and fungal infection of the mouth or throat.

I strongly suggest that, you can use inhaled steroids, which have much lesser side effects.
