Betamethasone, a corticosteroid, is applied topically to areas that are showing signs of inflammation, redness or irritation. Betamethasone helps to prevent the release of an inflammatory chemical that can cause severe eczema symptoms. Betamethasone is a strong (potent) steroid. It is therefore important to get the correct dosage. Betamethasone can be helpful in treating chronic conditions that have failed to respond to other treatments. Betnovate Scalp is highly effective in treating and calming the irritation and redness of the scalp.
Betnovate Scalp treatment is not recommended for daily use, despite its many benefits. It is best used for managing severe cases of eczema or folliculitis on the scalp.
Follow the instructions for use and application on the patient information leaflet.
The nozzle included with the bottle should be used to apply the liquid directly to the scalp. Apply the liquid to the scalp and let it air dry. Do not use a hairdryer, let the liquid air dry naturally. Do not wash your hair after applying the medication to the scalp. Do it before you apply the next dose.
Do not use the Betnovate Scalp Application for more than 10 days consecutively and do not use it for a long period of time without a break.
