    More Information Before You Buy Betnovate Cream

    • Generic Name: Betnovate


    Betnovate cream and ointment are often indicated for treating and preventing inflammatory skin disorders, such as eczema and psoriasis. Before you buy Betnovate cream, it is important to understand that the medication contains Betamethasone Valerate as its active ingredient. It is a prescription-only medication specifically formulated to relieve skin inflammation, itchiness, redness, and swelling. 


    Mechanism of Action

    Betnovate ointment 100g and Betnovate cream are available in different formulations. The topical corticosteroid medication contains the active ingredient Betamethasone Valerate. The active ingredient will reduce the inflammatory response of the skin cells due to exposure to the allergens. The skin cells will release inflammatory chemicals when exposed to allergens, causing skin inflammation, itchiness, and irritation. Betnovate cream prevents skin cells from releasing such chemicals, healing the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis. 


    Application and Administration

    It is advisable to consult with your healthcare provider before using Betnovate cream for eczema treatment. Make sure to read the patient information leaflet thoroughly for effective treatment. A typical application of Betnovate cream involves applying the cream evenly to the affected skin areas two times a day. Betnovate cream is suitable for moist skin areas, while Betnovate ointment is suitable for dry skin areas. Avoid applying Betnovate cream and ointment around the eyes, nose, or mouth. 



    Betnovate cream is a highly effective and powerful solution to treat eczema, psoriasis, and inflammatory skin conditions. As betamethasone (the active ingredient) is stronger than other treatment creams for eczema, Betnovate cream is usually prescribed when other over-the-counter medications fail. Betnovate cream can relieve skin inflammation and irritation within 24 hours of applying the cream over the affected area. 


    Side Effects

    Similar to other medications, Betnovate cream has several side effects. The most common side effects of Betnovate cream and ointment are as follows:

    • Itching, pain, burning sensation, and irritation at the application site. 
    • Change of skin colour
    • Skin becoming thinner

    It is crucial for individuals to be aware of the side effects before they buy Betnovate cream. If you experience severe or persisting side effects, discontinue using the cream and consult with your healthcare provider.



    Betnovate cream and ointment are contraindicated for patients with known allergic reactions to betamethasone or other ingredients in the topical corticosteroid medication. Stop using Betnovate if you notice any signs of allergic reaction and seek medical assistance immediately. Do not use this cream on the infected skin area unless your healthcare provider prescribes an anti-infective medication to use with it. Avoid applying the cream on the facial, neck, or sensitive areas. 



    1. Make sure to wash your hands and affected skin area with clean water.
    2. Apply Betnovate cream or ointment directly to the affected area.
