Description of Valisone G Ointment

Valisone G Ointment is a topical skin medication that contains both an antibiotic and a corticosteroid. Your doctor can prescribe Valisone G Ointment to treat psoriasis, eczema, and other skin conditions that have become infected. Many rashes or lesions that are caused from scratching affected skin can create an easy entrance for bacteria to gain access and cause more symptoms. To treat both the skin dermatitis and bacterial infection, apply Valisone G Ointment with Gentamicin/Betamethasone as directed.

How Valisone G Ointment Works

Gentamicin is a potent aminoglycoside antibiotic that interferes with the bacteria being able to produce an essential protein that they need in order to grow and multiply. The affects of Gentamicin also cause fissures to form in the outer membrane of the bacterial cells which allows the contents to leak out and other substances to seep in. The bacteria die and the infection heals.

Betamethasone is a corticosteroid that is absorbed into your skin cells and inhibits the enzymes that produce inflammatory substances that are signaled as an immune response to an injury or threat. This action will reduce inflammation, itching, and redness. Once the itch is calmed down, there is less risk of scratching the area and becoming at risk for an infection. The ointment formulation of this product creates a barrier that will help to absorb the active ingredients faster and deeper than a cream or lotion.

Conditions Treated by Valisone G Ointment

Psoriasis is an incurable autoimmune condition that can flare-up occasionally as your immune system goes a little haywire and messes with your skin cell cycle. Usually skin cells divide and replace themselves every 28-30 days and the old skin cells are ready to shed or slough off. For those with psoriasis, the skin cells are dividing and replacing themselves every 3 to 6 days while the old skin cells are not ready to shed. This causes the plaques of skin as the new cells push ahead and build up under the old cells. This causes the irritation, redness, and inflammation.

Before Valisone G Ointment is Prescribed

Ask your doctor if Valisone G Ointment is safe to apply when you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Your doctor should be informed of other medical conditions or allergies you have and discuss any Rx or OTC meds you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements to be certain Valisone G Ointment is right for you.

Valisone G Ointment Precautions

Do not cover or bandage the area treated with Valisone G Ointment unless told otherwise by your doctor as this may increase your risk of side effects. You should only apply Valisone G Ointment for as long as recommended by your doctor due to the risks of stretch marks or skin thinning that can occur from prolonged use. Keep Valisone G Ointment out of children’s reach and do not allow others to use it.
