What are the different types of Betnovate available?

Betnovate is available in several preparations based on its composition and concentration, and is available as a cream and as an ointment.

Betnovate (betamethasone valerate) reduces itching, redness, and swelling associated with many skin conditions. Betnovate-C is betamethasone in combination with the antifungal and antibiotic agent clioquinol. Betnovate-N contains the antibiotic neomycin. All formulations are used to treat inflammatory skin disorders, which are either infected or likely to become infected.

When are the different types of Betnovate (betamethasone) used?

Betnovate cream would normally be prescribed if the area of affected skin is weeping. Betnovate ointment is more appropriate for a dry area of skin as it is has a greasier texture. Our doctor will be able to advise which treatment is most appropriate for you.

How does Betnovate (betamethasone) work?

Betamethasone is a potent topical corticosteroid that reduces inflammation. Skin becomes inflamed as a result of the immune system's response to allergy or irritation of the skin. Following application to the skin, betamethasone works by acting inside the cells to reduce the release of these inflammatory substances, which in turn reduces swelling and redness.

How is Betnovate (betamethasone) used to treat eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis?

If we prescribe Betnovate for you then we will provide application instructions for you. There is also pre-purchase guidance on how to use this medication after you have been approved. Please remember that our consultation process is free and you are under no obligation to make a purchase.

Are there any side effects of Betnovate (betamethasone)?

Most people get absolutely no side effects whatsoever but if you do notice any side effects then you should bring these to the attention of the prescribing doctor. Side effects are more likely with prolonged treatment. We never advocate long term use of this type of medication as it increases the possibility of unwanted side effects such as thinning of the skin and excessive hair growth on the area being treated. If you find that your treatment is not being as effective as you would like, you should discuss this with us rather than seeking to prolong the treatment by getting another prescription elsewhere.

Can anyone use Betnovate (betamethasone)?

Certain people should not use Betnovate. You should answer all of the questions on our consultation form truthfully and to the best of your knowledge and this will allow us to ensure that you are offered a treatment that is appropriate for you.
