What is Betnovate 0.1%?
Betnovate is a prescription-only corticosteroid treatment available as both a cream and ointment. This medication is used to treat dry and inflammed skin often as a result of skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
How does it work?
Betnovate contains betamethasone, which a corticosteroid that works to inhibit the body's inflammatory chemical response to an allergen or irritation. Betamethasone works by binding to specific receptors in the skin cells and inhibiting the production of inflammatory substances, such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes. By reducing inflammation, Betnovate can relieve symptoms such as itching and redness and promote healing of the affected skin.
