BETNOVATE CREAM (BETAMETHASONE)

Description of Betnovate Cream

If you are bothered by eczema, psoriasis, or other skin conditions that cause inflammation, redness, and itching but other medications have failed to help, talk to your doctor about Betnovate Cream. The active ingredient in Betnovate Cream is Betamethasone, a strong corticosteroid that you apply topically to the affected areas on your skin. By reducing the inflammation, the other symptoms will decrease so you are less likely to cause lesions or broken skin from scratching and risk a possible bacterial infection.

How Does Betnovate Cream Work?

When applied as directed to the inflamed area, Betnovate Cream is absorbed into your skin cells. Betamethasone interferes with certain actions in your body that play a role in causing inflammation. An immune response to an allergen is considered a threat so your body produces chemicals that will flood the area and try to drive out the danger.

As Betnovate Cream prevents the inflammatory chemicals, such as prostaglandins, from being produced, inflammation begins to subside. Betnovate Cream is recommended for long-term; so once you have gained control over the inflammation, your doctor may suggest using Betnovate Cream on an ‘as needed’ basis to avoid any risks.

Conditions Treated by Betnovate Cream

People with contact dermatitis can also benefit from applying Betnovate Cream to the affected areas. If your immune system is over-active, you may find that coming into physical contact with certain objects, such as metals, latex gloves, specific plants, or perfumes and cosmetics, cause the skin in that area to become itchy, red, swollen, and inflamed. This is your body’s immune response to what it believes is a threat.

Initially, inflammation is helpful for supplying care and protection, but sometimes it can be self-perpetuating as the inflammation detects inflammation as being harmful so more inflammation is caused. Stop the cycle with Betnovate Cream and enjoy the relief from painful swelling and redness.

Before Betnovate Cream is Prescribed

Ask your doctor about any risks to applying Betnovate Cream while you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. To determine if Betnovate Cream is safe for you to apply, explain other medical conditions or allergies you have to your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements.

Betnovate Cream Precautions

Betnovate Cream is a fairly potent corticosteroid, so once you have your dermatoses under control, you may be advised to use something milder as a maintenance treatment for eczema or psoriasis. Do not cover or bandage the treated skin area treated with Betnovate Cream as it could cause an increased risk of side effects.

Possible Side Effects of Betnovate Cream
