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.
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.

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?

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