BETA CREAM or OINTMENT contains the active ingredient betamethasone valerate. It belongs to a group of medicines known as topical corticosteroids. "Topical" means that they are applied onto the skin. Topical steroids are used to help reduce inflammation in the affected area which helps to reduce redness and itchiness caused by the skin disease.
BETA CREAM or OINTMENT is useful in treating various inflamed conditions of the skin such as:
severe forms of eczema
lichen planus (chronic itchy skin of unknown origin)
discoid lupus erythematosus (recurring scaly rash)
when milder topical steroids cannot treat the skin condition effectively.
BETA CREAM is used to treat skin conditions on moist surfaces; BETA OINTMENT is used to treat skin conditions on dry, scaly skin.
Your doctor, however, may prescribe BETA CREAM or OINTMENT for another purpose. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why BETA CREAM or OINTMENT has been prescribed for you.
