What Is This Treatment And How Is It Going To Be Useful In Treating Your Condition?
Betnovate is a prescription medication that’s used in order to help provide relief for conditions where inflammation is a serious side effect as well as itching. Betnovate cream contains an active ingredient called betamethasone valerate, which is a form of topical corticosteroid. You can find the ointment under generic names or the main brand name. Betnovate is a very effective treatment to lower inflammation on the skin and should be used carefully.
How does Betnovate work in order to be able to provide the help that it does and what’s the best way to go about using it?
Betnovate is able to act inside a person’s skin cells in order to prevent the releasing of different substances known to cause inflammation. When this happens it’s going to reduce problems such as swelling, redness as well as itching. People who have a problem with controlling scratching (which would only serve to make an inflammation condition worse) would get a lot of help from this.
There are certain areas of the skin where the treatment is going to prove most useful. This is going to be in areas that are moist or weeping. This is for the cream version. If you are using the ointment version this is going to work better in areas of the skin that are dry or scaly. The lotion form of this treatment works best when used for areas of the skin that are hairy or when a small amount of treatment to a large area or skin is required.
What’s the best way to go about using this treatment in order to ensure it works for you the way it’s supposed to?
You should make sure you apply the treatment (whether it is the cream, ointment or lotion) in a thin fashion and evenly to areas of the skin where it’s needed. This should be done one time or two times a day in order to begin treatment. Make sure you pay careful attention to your condition and know when it’s getting better. When you begin to see that your condition is getting better, than you’ll want to start using less and less Betnovate. In some cases a doctor’s help might be required in order to know for sure that using less Betnovate is right.
What are some of the potential side effects a person might be at risk for if they decide to make use of this medicational treatment?
Spreading or worsening of untreated infections
Thinning of the skin.
Reduced skin pigmentation
Stretch marks (striae).
Groupings of fine blood vessels becoming prominent under the skin (telangiectasia).
Excessive hair growth (hypertrichosis).
Understand that just because these are possible side effects doesn’t mean everyone will experience them. The risk of experiencing any of these is low as long as Betnovate is used the way it’s supposed to be. The best way to protect yourself is to make sure you follow the directions of a doctor exactly. If they don’t give you specific directions, then make sure you follow the directions that come with Betnovate. These directions are usually very easy to make sense of.
