Medical Description

Betnovate-S ointment is a combination medicine containing Betamethasone and Salicylic acid. Betnovate-S cream is used for the treatment of skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and other dry, scaly conditions of the skin. Betametasone works by decreasing swelling, redness and itchiness at the site of application by blocking chemicals responsible for swelling, redness and itchiness. Salicylic acid works by removing and shedding dead cells from the top layer of skin by increasing skin moisture resulting in a decrease in scaling and dryness. Itching, burning sensation, pain, irritation, dryness or unwanted scaling at the site of application are side effects of using this medicine.
