Betamethasone Cream 0.1% 30g is a topically applied steroid (also called a corticosteroid). This is not equivalent to an anabolic steroid. It contains the active ingredient betamethasone (0.1% w/w) as valerate. It is used to help reduce the redness and itchiness of certain skin problems.
Betamethasone is one of the strongest topical corticosteroids. They are more potent than certain conventional therapies, such as hydrocortisone creams for the skin. When previous medications have not been effective, betamethasone is usually prescribed. In addition to moisturisers (emollients), topical steroids are used to treat inflammatory skin disorders such as eczema and dermatitis. When eczema or dermatitis flares up in patches, a topical steroid is used. Betamethasone reduces inflammation, itching, and redness to alleviate the symptoms of a flare-up. Although it won't treat the ailment, it will assist to lessen the symptoms. For the treatment of psoriasis in tiny areas like the scalp, soles of the feet, or palms of the hands, short courses of betamethasone may also be used.
There are different preparations for betamethasone. If the affected regions of the skin are moist or weeping, an ointment may be suggested; lotion may be recommended for bigger or hairy patches of skin. It can also be applied topically to the scalp. Although brief courses of up to two weeks may occasionally be prescribed for a child by a skin specialist doctor, betamethasone is generally not recommended for use in children.
Furthermore, antibacterial or antifungal agents can be found in betamethasone preparations (such as clotrimazole). Betamethasone is occasionally used with the antibiotic fusidic acid. This is used for the treatment of bacterial skin infections. If your skin has been infected, you could be given a prescription for one of these medications for short-term usage. Usually, they are only used twice a day for a week.
