VALISONE G CREAM (GENTAMICIN/BETAMETHASONE)

Valisone G Cream Description

Valisone G cream is a topical medication that is prescribed to treat the redness, itching, and inflammation of psoriasis, eczema, and other inflammatory skin conditions that have become infected with bacteria. Applying Valisone G Cream will not cure eczema or psoriasis, but it can help to soothe the symptoms and stop the risk of a bacterial infection due to scratching that could allow the bacteria to enter lesions or areas of broken skin.

How The Active Ingredients Work In/On Your Skin

Valisone G Cream combines two active ingredients, Gentamicin and Betamethasone. Gentamicin is an antibiotic that interrupts bacterial protein synthesis which is vital for their existence. Betamethasone is a corticosteroid medication that blocks certain chemicals that cause inflammation as your immune systems’ way of containing a threat. Together, the active ingredients in Valisone G cream eliminate the bacteria and reduce the inflammation and itching of your skin.

Skin Conditions Treated by Valisone G Cream

Eczema is the term used for a group of skin conditions that cause inflammation of the skin. Eczema is characterized by dry skin with patches that are red and very itchy. These patches may ooze and become scaly, crusted and hardened. Flare-ups may be mild or severe and can migrate around the body.

Atopic dermatitis is the prevalent form of eczema. Atopy refers to a hereditary tendency towards a group of conditions that include eczema, asthma, and hay fever. Young children are more susceptible to eczema, which is not contagious. One of the most common symptoms of atopic eczema is the itching, which can be extremely uncomfortable. Constant scratching can cause the skin to split, leaving it prone to infection.

Contact dermatitis occurs when the skin comes in contact with an irritant or an allergen. Common causes of allergic reactions include contact with metals, fragrance, rubber, or plants. Irritant contact dermatitis often results when the hands are repeatedly wet due to occupations such as cleaners, hairdressers and people who handle food. The best treatment for contact dermatitis is to avoid exposure to the items that trigger flare-ups wherever possible.
