Betaderm Scalp Lotion Description

Betaderm Scalp Lotion contains a corticosteroid that can help reduce the inflammation and swelling from scalp psoriasis as well as minimize the flakes from seborrheic dermatitis, commonly known as dandruff. These bothersome and sometimes embarrassing conditions can benefit from Betaderm Scalp Lotion as prescribed by your doctor. Topical corticosteroids such as Betaderm Scalp Lotion are not advised as a long-term solution as they can exacerbate your psoriasis and cause thinning of the skin.

This is How Betaderm Scalp Lotion Works

Once applied as directed, Betaderm Scalp Lotion’s active ingredient, Betamethasone Valerate, will absorb into your skin cells and decrease the production of chemicals in your body that cause redness, inflammation, and ultimately the itchy flakes that occur from an abundance of dead skin cells. Betaderm Scalp Lotion is formulated to be thinner than ointments and creams so it is easier to apply to your scalp without making your hair greasy or oily.

Conditions Treated by Betaderm Scalp Lotion

Scalp psoriasis is most annoying as it can extend beyond your scalp and appear on your forehead, eyebrows, and around your ears. It is not contagious and is thought to result when your immune system becomes misguided and starts to produce skin cells faster than the old cells have flaked off.

We usually have a steady cycle of “out-with-the-old” and “in-with-the-new” when it comes to our skin cells. As new skin cells move towards the top of our epidermis, the older skin cells flake and fall off. This action is continuous so we don’t notice this happening.

Before You Apply Betaderm Scalp Lotion

Ask your doctor if Betaderm Scalp Lotion is safe to apply if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Do not apply Betaderm Scalp Lotion more than recommended by your physician as it can worsen your situation or cause the treated skin areas to become thin and tear easily. Do not apply Betaderm Scalp Lotion if you have an infection on your scalp.

Tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC and Rx drugs you are taking, including herbal remedies or vitamin supplements as any of these could cause unintended interactions with Betaderm Scalp Lotion.

Proper Use of Betaderm Scalp Lotion

Wash your hands thoroughly after applying Betaderm Scalp Lotion to avoid getting any in your eyes. The ingredients of Betaderm Scalp Lotion are flammable so do not use a blow dryer on your hair after applying or get too close to an open flame. More is not always better when it comes to medication! You should only apply Betaderm Scalp Lotion to the affected areas and for the recommended time your doctor has indicated. If your second application is done before bed, you can use a towel to put your head on until the area is dry.
