Betnovate Cream is only meant to be used on the outside of the body and should only be used as your doctor tells you to. Most of the time, you should wash and dry the area before putting a thin layer of medicine on it.
Please keep it away from your eyes, nose, and mouth. If you accidentally encounter these areas, wash them off with water.
Unless told to do so by a doctor, don't cover the treated area with airtight dressings like bandages.
Treatment of allergic skin conditions
"Allergic skin conditions" are immune responses and skin irritations due to allergies. There are different kinds of allergic skin conditions. Two common types are Urticaria and Dermatitis.
Urticaria is the medical term for "hives," which are raised, red, and itchy patches of skin. Dermatitis is an inflammation that can make the skin red, scaly, and itchy.
Treatment of allergic conditions
Allergies happen when the immune system of the body reacts strangely to an outside trigger called an allergen. There are allergens in our environment, but most people don't have an immune response to them.
While in some people, these foreign bodies or allergens cause the body's immune system to make antibodies. This leads to inflammation, which can cause a wide range of symptoms that can be mild or severe.
Betamethasone Valerate (0.10% w/w) is the active ingredient in Betnovate Cream 0.10% w/w.
Betamethasone Valerate is a steroid that works inside the skin cells to stop the release of inflammatory substances that cause swelling, pain, redness, irritation, and itching.
This reduces all of these inflammatory symptoms.
How to use it?
This medicine can only be applied to the skin. Your doctor will tell you how much to take and for how long. Before you use it, check the label to see how to do it.
Before you apply the cream, you should wash and dry your hands and the affected area well.
Until it's dry, wait a few minutes.
Take a pea-sized amount of cream on the tip of your finger and rub it gently over the affected area (avoid applying near eyes, mouth, nose and inner ear).
After applying, wash your hands carefully unless your hands are in the problem area.
When too much cream is used, it just gets piled up. It takes time to work, and putting too much of it on won't speed up the process.
If you missed taking a dose, you should take it as soon as you remember. But if it's almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and return to your regular schedule.
Don't use more than one dose at once because that could cause a severe problem. If you are in confusion, talk to your doctor.
