Betamethasone can help you manage your skin conditions and improve your quality of living as it can treat a variety of conditions throughout the body, including the scalp and soles of the feet.
There are many reasons for skin inflammation, but most commonly, it is due to allergic reactions or skin irritation. The immune system will release chemicals when it detects inflammation. It causes blood vessels to enlarge, which results in itching, redness and swelling.
Betamethasone can be applied topically to the skin that causes the skin to produce less inflammation and reduce swelling. Betamethasone cream is also useful in treating other skin conditions, including allergies, irritants, body reactions to insect bites and stings, as well as rashes due to other issues.
Betamethasone cream is effective on weeping and moist areas of the skin. For dry, scaly areas of skin, the thicker and more greasy ointment works well.
Apply a small portion of Betamethasone Cream thinly to the affected skin area and reduce the frequency as you observe improvement in the infection.
Betamethasone should not be applied to broken or infected areas of the skin unless you are treating the infection in such areas. Betamethasone should not be applied to facial skin unless your doctor has instructed you to for treating the affected skin on the face. Betamethasone must not come in contact with your eyes, mouth or nose. In the event of accidental application, wash the affected area immediately with cold water.
Wash your hands well before and after applying the medication unless you are treating your hands.
Unless your doctor instructs you, do not apply airtight dressings or bandages over the area that is being treated. It increases the absorption that may lead to side effects. Apply Betamethasone to the skin under prescribed dressings. Waterproof pants and nappies act as airtight covering to increase the body's ability to absorb the medicine in children.
If your skin condition doesn't improve within two weeks, discontinue Betamethasone treatment. Talk to your doctor immediately if the condition persists or worsen.
Use a thin layer of Betamethasone on the skin and gently rub it in. Repeat this process for four weeks until you notice improvements. After the fourth week, the frequency of application should be adjusted or decreased to a less potent formulation.
Betamethasone is compatible to be used in combination with other beneficial ingredients to provide antibacterial, antibacterial, or antifungal treatment.
Betamethasone medications may contain antibacterial substances such as Clioquinol and Neomycin. Some of these medications may also contain antifungal substances such as Clotrimazole. If you have an infection, this treatment is for temporary use and is used two times a day for not more than one week.
Do not use Betamethasone Cream for a longer time to avoid unwanted side effects like thinning skin or excessive hair growth.
Betamethasone should never be used on children. If a doctor prescribes it for children, do not exceed the usage for more than two weeks.
Tell your doctor about any medications that you take, especially corticosteroid medication. You should allow several minutes between the application of Betamethasone and any other topical medication.
Apply a moisturiser to your skin 30 minutes before applying Betamethasone, it softens the skin which helps in better absorption of the medication. Betamethasone dilutes if a moisturiser is applied soon after or before applying Betamethasone.
