    What does Betamethasone treat?

    Betamethasone is a topical corticosteroid cream that activates natural substances in the body to alleviate itching, redness, and swelling due to allergies, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and rash. Your physician may prescribe this to treat other conditions too.

    Dosage Instructions

    Follow the Betamethasone dosage prescribed by your physician. The dosage could vary based on individual patient requirements. Always follow your physician’s instructions or go by the directions on the prescription drug label. To use, apply a little cream on to the affected area and massage into skin. Remember to wash your hands before and after application.

    Missed a dose?

    Take it immediately once you remember. In case, this time falls close to the next dosage, skip it and get back to the prescribed schedule. Never use a double dose unless your physician specifically directs you to do so.

    Overdosed?

    Don’t waste any time and seek immediate medical attention.

    Drug Interactions

    Drug interactions must be considered before starting to take any kind of drug. Drug interactions might happen either when Betamethasone is taken along with another drug or with particular foods. To prevent any kind of negative interaction, make sure you inform your doctor of any drugs you are taking including non-prescription medication, OTCs, health supplements like vitamins, minerals, herbal medicine, drinks with caffeine and alcohol, illegal drugs, smoking habits and so on which may increase or interfere with the effect of Betamethasone.

    It may interact with: 

    • Cyclosporine 
    • Prednisone/Prednisolone 

    It may also interact with other topical products and oral corticosteroids. This is not an exhaustive list though.

    Appraise your doctor of any medical conditions that you are suffering from and your family history of medical ailments. It’s important that you do not stop or start taking any medicine without the consent of your physician.

    Possible Side Effects

    Betamethasone might have some side effects but it’s not possible to anticipate them. It does not have any major side effects and the minor ones that may occur are temporary. In rare cases, there might be major side effects and immediate medical attention must be sought.

    Some of the side effects could be as redness, blistering, stretch marks, peeling, itching, burning, and thinning of your skin. This is not the complete list though.

    In case, there is a change in intensity of side effects or if any new side effects develop, make sure you consult your doctor.

    What to ask your doctor before you start on Betamethasone

    • Can I use Betamethasone along with other drugs? 
    • Are there certain foods, beverages and products to be avoided while on Betamethasone? 
    • What is the amount of Betamethasone to be used? 
    • How should I use Betamethasone? 
    • How will Betamethasone work on my body?

    Hi, Betamethasone is a topical corticosteroid cream that is used to treat itching, redness, and swelling caused by a variety of skin conditions such as allergies, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and rash. To remove the dark spots we have a cream called Melalite and which is used to treat hyperpigmentory skin conditions like chloasma, freckles, lentigines, post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, residual hyperpigmentation, patchy hyperpigmentation. Not just for acne scar treatment, Melalite Cream also is a good cream for prevention of acne. Melalite Cream is good for acne scar, skin blemishes, dark pigmentation, pimple marks and all kind of facial problems. Hydroquinone is used to lighten the dark patches of skin (also called hyperpigmentation, melasma, "liver spots," "age spots," freckles) caused by pregnancy, birth control pills, hormone medicine, or injury to the skin. This medicine works by blocking the process in the skin that leads to discoloration. Melalite Cream usage First of all wash you face clean with a face wash and Luke warm water, now pat it dry. Now apply Melalite Cream on the affected area and rub it in a circular motion. Keeping rubbing Melalite Cream until the cream gets absorbed by the skin and use it continuously every might for 3-4 months before it starts showing results. In case of any kind of discomfort after applying Melalite Cream please stop using it and consult you dermatologist immediately. Some skin is hyper sensitive and skin irritation may occur.

    What is the difference the generic is a cream and the luxiq is a foam and does the generic come in a foam? Reply
    Replied by Pharmacist @ IDM
    Hi, Cream and Foam are different formulations but both gives same effect of the drug. Whereas foam is a substance that is formed by trapping many gaseous bubbles in a liquid or solid and foam is softer than cream. Luxiq is not available in Foam form with us and it's available only in cream form.
