hydrocortisone / betnovate on papule?

I have a nasty papule on my chin (its red, about 4mm wide, has no head , is raised, no lump under the skin, hurts though)

cause it reminds me of an insect bite or summat I just spot treated it with hydrocortisone 1% on it, was this a bad idea? what about betnovate?

should I just stick to the BP?

opinions and experiences welcome

I've tried hydrocortisone before on stubborn spots and it always seems to fade them much quicker than anything else. The steroid in hydrocortisone is anti-inflammatory. I don't know how good it is for your skin, though.
