Product Description

Where Can I use Betamethasone?

Betamethasone cream is not suitable to be used all over the body but can be used in a range of different places as long as the doctor agrees. These are some places where the cream is commonly used:

  • Feet
  • Legs
  • Face
  • Scalp
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Hands

You should only use betamethasone in the way that your doctor has recommended. Some doctors do not always advise that the cream be used on your face, and it should only be done for around 5 days if your doctor does recommend it.

Betamethasone is an external medication and should never be used internally. If you are experiencing any itchiness or swelling from using Betamethasone then you should stop using it and contact your GP urgently.


How Do You Use Betamethasone?

Betamethasone should be applied directly to the area of problem, as long as this is one of the areas we have previously listed or the doctor approved. Follow the instructions of the prescriber on how to use betamethasone for your skin condition, and always read the patient information leaflet that comes with the cream before using it.

Ensure that your hands are completely dry and clean before applying Betamethasone. Apply a thin layer over the affected area of skin and rub in gently. Do not apply betamethasone to infected or broken skin. Avoid getting the cream into your eyes, nose, or mouth, and if you do so accidently, immediately wash with cold water.

If you suffer from psoriasis and have fairly large areas that are affected then your doctor or GP may recommend using an airtight dressing or bandage over the patch for a few days. The airtight dressing will increase the amount of medication the body absorbs, which could increase the possibility of side effects. Never apply a dressing over the cream unless your doctor has told you to do so.


Betamethasone Cream Dosage

Apply a thin layer of betamethasone cream to the affected area once or twice a day for up to four weeks, until improvements are observed. How often you apply to cream should be reduced after the fourth week.


How Long Does Betamethasone Take To Work?

When using Betamethasone cream, you should start to see results within around 2 weeks.

Some of the side effects that this medication can cause are more common than others, but if you suffer any side effects which cause you concern, you should get in touch with your GP or doctor as soon as possible.

Who Can Use Betamethasone?

Most people should be able to use Betamethasone cream if they are suffering from inflammatory conditions to do with the skin such as psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. However, Betamethasone cream does contain a strong steroid so it may not be completely safe to use for some people.
