In this article we are going to talk about a medicine that is used for treating certain skin problems. It is called betnovate cream & Ointment and it contains betamethasone valerate 0.1% as its active ingredient. This medication works by blocking the production of chemical messengers that make your skin red, swollen and itchy. This is done by reducing the number of cortisone hormones produced in your skin.

It is unlikely to cause side effects if it is used exactly as advised by your doctor. However, it is best to speak to your doctor if you have any concerns about the way that Betnovate is being used. The medicine is applied thinly and evenly to the affected areas of your skin. This should be done once or twice a day at first, but then less frequently as your condition improves, or as advised by your doctor.

Ensure that you apply the medication in the same spot every time. Also, ensure that you wash and dry your hands thoroughly before and after applying this medicine.

Using this medication on large areas of the body for long periods can reduce its effect and increase your risk of side effects. This can include thinning of the skin and some subtle changes to your skin pigmentation. These side effects are rare and are not usually harmful, but should be reported to your doctor immediately if they occur. Visit medicationplace site for more details.
