How does it work?
Betnovate C cream and ointment both contain two active ingredients, betamethasone valerate and clioquinol.
Betamethasone valerate is a type of medicine called a topical corticosteroid.
Corticosteroids are medicines used for reducing inflammation. Inflammation of the skin happens as a result of allergy or irritation of the skin, and is caused by the release of various substances that are important in the immune system. These substances cause blood vessels to widen and result in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful, such as is seen in dermatitis or eczema.
When betamethasone is applied to the skin it works by acting inside the cells to decrease the release of these inflammatory substances. This reduces swelling, redness and itch. Betamethasone is a potent corticosteroid.
Clioquinol has antifungal and antibacterial actions. It works by preventing the growth and multiplication of the organisms.
The combination of betamethasone and clioquinol is used to treat inflammatory skin disorders, which are either infected or likely to become infected.
What is it used for?
- An eruption of hard nodules in the skin accompanied by intense itching (prurigo nodularis).
- Infected insect bites.
- Inflammation of the skin around the genitals or anus, caused by skin surfaces rubbing together (genital or perianal intertrigo).
- Inflammation or irritation of the skin caused by a reaction to irritants (contact dermatitis).
- Inflammatory skin condition with greasy, red and scaly areas (seborrhoeic dermatitis).
- Inflammatory skin disease known as discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE).
- Thickened skin rash caused by excessive scratching to relieve itching (neurodermatitis).
- This medicine is for external use on the skin only.
- This medicine should be applied thinly and evenly to the affected area(s) as directed by your doctor.
- Wash your hands thoroughly after applying this medicine, unless the hands are the area being treated.
- Avoid contact of this medicine with open wounds and with the eyes and the moist membranes lining the inside of certain parts of the body, eg mouth, nasal passages (mucous membranes). Rinse with cold water if accidental contact occurs.
- If your doctor has advised you to use dressings with this medicine, the skin should be cleansed before reapplying the cream under a fresh dressing.
- If corticosteroids are used long term, on large areas of skin, raw skin, skin folds, or under airtight dressings (including nappies) they are absorbed into the body more. This increases the risk of local side effects such as skin thinning, and those on other parts of the body, such as a decrease in the production of natural hormones by the adrenal glands. For this reason, continuous, long-term use of this medicine should be avoided wherever possible, particularly in children and on large areas of skin. You should only use airtight dressings over the affected area if instructed by your doctor.
- This medicine should not be used for longer than five days on the face or in children.
- Consult your doctor if your symptoms don't improve, or get worse in the first seven days of treatment. Do not use this medicine for longer than five days without consulting your doctor.
- This preparation may stain skin, hair and fabric. You can protect clothes by covering the treated area with a non-airtight cotton bandage or piece of clean cloth.
- If you think the area of skin you are treating has become infected you should stop using this medicine and consult your doctor.
