Betamethasone topical is indicated for the treatment of a range of dermatological conditions characterized by symptoms such as itching, redness, dryness, crusting, scaling, inflammation, and discomfort. These conditions include psoriasis, a dermatological disorder characterized by the formation of red, scaly patches on select areas of the body, as well as eczema, a skin condition that manifests as dry, itchy skin.

Betamethasone belongs to a class of pharmacological agents known as corticosteroids. Its mechanism of action involves the activation of endogenous substances within the skin, leading to a reduction in swelling, redness, and itching.

Uses and Dosage

Prior to applying the medication, ensure that your hands are thoroughly washed and dried. Cleanse and dry the affected area before proceeding. Apply a thin layer of the medication to the affected region and gently massage it in. Generally, this should be done once or twice daily, as prescribed by your healthcare provider.

Refrain from covering, bandaging, or wrapping the area.

Upon completion of the application, wash your hands, unless the medication is specifically intended for treating the hands. When applying the medication in the vicinity of the eyes, exercise caution to prevent contact with the eyes, as this may exacerbate or induce glaucoma. Take care to avoid contact of the medication with the nose or mouth. If accidental contact occurs in these areas, promptly rinse with an ample amount of water.

Strictly employ this medication solely for the prescribed condition. Refrain from using it for a duration exceeding two consecutive weeks, and ensure that the quantity of gel does not surpass 50 grams or the cream/ointment does not exceed 45 grams per week, unless specifically directed to do so by your healthcare provider.

Should your condition persist or deteriorate after two weeks of use, inform your doctor.

Side Effects

Some side effects may occur that usually do not need medical attention:

  • burning, itching, irritation, stinging, redness, or dryness of the skin
  • acne
  • unwanted hair growth
  • skin color changes
  • bruising or shiny skin
  • tiny red bumps or rash around the mouth
  • small white or red bumps on the skin

Inform your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any serious side effects:

  • severe rash
  • redness, swelling, or other signs of skin infection in the place where you applied betamethasone


Prior to initiating the use of betamethasone, inform your healthcare provider or pharmacist about any known allergies to betamethasone, other corticosteroids, or any other substances. This product may contain inactive ingredients that could potentially trigger allergic reactions or other complications.

Before utilizing this medication, disclose your complete medical history to your healthcare provider or pharmacist, particularly if you have a history of poor blood circulation, immune system disorders, or certain skin conditions when using the gel formulation.

Refrain from using this medication if there is an existing infection or sore in the area that requires treatment.

In rare instances, prolonged use of corticosteroid medications over large areas of the skin or for an extended period may diminish the body’s ability to respond to physical stress. Before undergoing surgical procedures or emergency treatment, or in the event of a severe illness or injury, inform your doctor or dentist about your current use or recent use of this medication.

Although it is unlikely, prolonged use of this medication in children may potentially cause temporary growth inhibition. Regular check-ups with a doctor are recommended to monitor the child’s height.

During pregnancy, the use of this medication should only be considered if absolutely necessary. Discuss the potential risks and benefits with your doctor.
