What is Betnovate Scalp Application?

Betnovate Scalp Application is used in the treatment of scalp psoriasis, scalp seborrheic dermatitis and inflammation caused by severe dandruff. It contains the active ingredient betamethasone valerate, a topical corticosteroid that reduces inflammation to alleviate itching, redness and swelling. Betamethasone valerate 0.1% is classed as a potent topical corticosteroid.

These conditions are not only painful and unpleasant, but in severe cases they can even lead to temporary hair loss.

This medicine is suitable for use in children over 1 year of age, but should not be used for courses of more than 5 days. It is also suitable for use by adults and the elderly. 

How does Betnovate Scalp Application work?

Scalp conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis are caused by inflammation. When the immune system produces substances that cause the widening of blood vessels, this results in itchy, red and painful skin. In the case of scalp conditions, this also causes scaling and a flaky scalp.

Betnovate Scalp Application works inside the skin cells to reduce the release of inflammatory substances, reducing itching, redness and scaling and providing relief from symptoms.

Betnovate Scalp Application is a solution which is thinner and easier to apply to the scalp than Betnovate Cream or Betnovate Ointment.

This medicine contains betamethasone valerate 0.1%, which is classed as a potent corticosteroid. Your doctor will usually prescribe this type of corticosteroid if weaker steroid creams or ointments have failed to treat your scalp condition.
