Table of contents:

Betnovate is a prescribed medication used to treat a range of inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, insect bites, and prickly heat. It contains the active ingredient betamethasone valerate.

Betamethasone valerate belongs to a group of medications called corticosteroids, not to be confused with anabolic steroids which are sometimes misused by athletes. It works by reducing inflammation in the affected area, thereby reducing the redness, swelling, and itchiness of the skin.

Uses and Dosage

Use Betnovate Cream only on the skin and not on the face, groin, or underarms unless directed to do so by your doctor. Before use, wash and dry your hands and the affected area. Apply a thin layer of medication to the affected area and gently rub it in, usually 1-3 times daily or as directed by your doctor. Do not bandage, cover, or wrap the area unless directed to do so by your doctor.

After applying Betnovate Cream, wash your hands unless you are using the medication to treat the hands. Avoid getting the cream near your eyes, nose, or mouth. If it accidentally gets in these areas, rinse with plenty of water. Only use this medication for the condition for which it was prescribed, and not for longer than prescribed. If you experience any unexpected side effects or skin irritation, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
