Betaderm Ointment Description

To relieve the itch and inflammation of eczema, psoriasis, rashes, and bites or stings, talk to your doctor about Betaderm Ointment. This is a topical corticosteroid medication that can be applied to the areas of your skin affected by coming into contact with poison ivy or oak, being stung or bitten by a bug or insect, or a flare-up of eczema or psoriasis.

Even knowing that inflammation is part of the healing process, you want to calm it down and relieve the pain and itching before you scratch the area and break the skin or cause a lesion that may become infected and cause an even bigger problem.

Decrease the Symptoms of Itchy, Inflamed Skin

When applied as directed, Betaderm Ointment will be absorbed into your skin cells and interfere with the production of the inflammatory chemicals produced as a result of an immune response. This will calm down the inflammation and redness and decrease the itch that can accompany some skin conditions.

Ointments tend to promote a better absorption of the medicine compared to other formulations and is usually more potent. Your doctor may recommend Betaderm Ointment or generic Betamethasone Valerate for the dried, thickened plaques of psoriasis instead of a cream or lotion. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Conditions Treated by Betaderm Ointment

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes your immune system to interfere with your skin cell growth cycle, causing it to speed up the production of new cells while the old cells have not had time to fall or slough off. This results in the raised, flaky patches of skin that can itch and become inflamed.

Eczema is believed to be caused by a structural defect in the epidermis that allows toxins and antigens to enter and trigger an immune response. Inflammatory chemicals are dispatched to the affected area and cause swelling, redness, and itching. Betaderm Ointment can settle down the effects of this immune response so there is less risk of scratching and causing an infection. There is no cure for eczema or psoriasis, only treatment.

Before Betaderm Ointment is Applied

Ask your doctor about any risks of using Betaderm Ointment while you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or when breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx meds you take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements to determine if Betaderm Ointment is safe for you.

Betaderm Ointment Proper Use and Recommendations

Betaderm Ointment is an upper mid-strength topical corticosteroid that is only recommended as a short-term treatment. Once you gain control of your skin condition, your doctor may advise to only apply during flare-ups or ‘as needed’, or prescribe a lower strength corticosteroid that will not cause any problems. Do not share Betaderm Ointment with anyone else, even if they display similar symptoms. Keep out of children’s reach.
