Betacap 0.1% w/w Solution
What is the Betacap 0.1% w/w solution?
Betacap scalp application is a formula designed to treat eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, and psoriasis on the scalp. It has 0.1% betamethasone as an active ingredient, a corticosteroid that lowers the irritation and inflammation of the scalp. It is designed especially for the scalp and for the conditions that are refractory to common ointments and creams.
How does it work?
The corticosteroid present in this preparation reduces inflammation. It suppresses the activation of various genes, which are activated in response to inflammation. It also calms down the hyperactive immune system, which often attacks the cells of the body (autoimmune reactions). It also provides moisture to the scalp, and the lotion creates conditions that are not favourable for the growth of dangerous bacteria.
Is the Betacap solution suitable for me?
This cream is suitable for you if you have psoriasis, eczema or seborrheic dermatitis. It may also be used in any inflammatory skin condition, as the dermatologist recommends. Consult the doctor before use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Is Betacap a strong or weak steroid?
It contains 0.1% betamethasone which is a potent corticosteroid. As a strong steroid, you should not use it without consulting the dermatologist.
How long do I need to use this?
It depends upon the condition and the recommendation of the dermatologist. However, a potent corticosteroid shouldn't be used for more than 7 days unless the physician recommends doing so.
How effective is the Betacap solotion?
Corticosteroids are among the most potent anti-inflammatory and painkiller compounds. So, the Betacap solution works quickly and has overwhelmingly positive user responses. A very small fraction of users have noted that it takes some days, but for the majority, it works quickly. It is also very easy to handle and use.
Can Betacap cause weight gain?
Weight gain with a cutaneous solution is rare as little of the drug will be absorbed into the body. However, people using oral corticosteroids for long periods do notice it.
Do I need a prescription to get Betacap solution?
It is a powerful corticosteroid and is not available over the counter. You need to consult the physician and obtain the prescription to use it.
How often should I use it daily?
For adults and children, it is needed to be applied daily in the morning and evening until signs of improvement appear. Once the condition has improved significantly, you can reduce the frequency to once daily or even less.
What should I do if it accidentally enters the eyes or is swallowed?
It is for cutaneous use only. If it enters the eyes, rinse them with plenty of water and visit the ophthalmologist if you have trouble with vision. If a large quantity is swallowed, rush to the emergency room.
