Betnovate Cream

Betnovate Cream contains a medicine called betamethasone valerate. Betamethasone valerate belongs to a group of medicines called steroids that help reduce swelling and irritation.

Betnovate cream is used to help reduce the redness and itchiness of certain skin problems, such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.

The majority of skin treatments that include Betamethasone valerate as a steroid are prescription only and can come in creams, ointments, lotions, scalp treatments and medicated plasters. Whilst hydrocortisone creams can sometimes do the job just as well, Betnovate cream is usually prescribed when other medications haven’t shown any improvement.

Betnovate RD Cream

Betnovate RD Cream is different to standard Betnovate Cream. They both contain the same steroid ingredient, Betamethasone valerate, and are used to reduce swelling and irritation.

The RD in Betnovate RD Cream stands for ‘Ready Diluted’, as it contains less active ingredient than Betnovate Cream. It’s mostly used for:

  • Milder skin problems.
  • Keeping the skin problem under control after Betnovate Cream has improved it.

Betnovate N Cream

Betnovate N Cream is also a different variation of the Betnovate family. Betnovate N Cream contains the same steroid, Betamethasone valerate, but it also contain another active ingredient called Neomycin.

Neomycin is an antibiotic medicine that helps the body fight back against bacterial infections of the skin. It’s typically used to reduce the risk of infection during the surgery of intestines. Betnovate N Cream would be prescribed in cases where the steroid cream would be helpful but where the skin is also infected, or likely to become infected.

Betnovate C Cream

Betnovate C Cream is another different variation of the Betnovate Cream family. Betnovate C Cream contains both Betamethasone valerate and clioquinol. Similar to Betnovate N Cream, the clioquinol is used to reduce skin infections causes by bacteria and fungus.

Clioquinol reduces skin infections by inhibiting certain enzyme involved in the DNA synthesis of bacteria. This results in the bacteria dying, thus preventing the skin infection from happening. Betnovate C Cream can also be effective against some fungal skin infections.

Atopic eczema (atopic dermatitis) is the most common form of eczema, a condition that causes the skin to become itchy, dry and cracked.

Atopic eczema is more common in children, often developing before their first birthday. But it may also develop for the first time in adults.

It’s usually a long-term (chronic) condition, although it can improve significantly, or even clear completely, in some children as they get older.

Symptoms of atopic eczema
Atopic eczema causes the skin to become itchy, dry, cracked and sore.

Some people only have small patches of dry skin, but others may experience widespread inflamed skin all over the body.

Inflamed skin can become red on lighter skin, and darker brown, purple or grey on darker skin. This can also be more difficult to see on darker skin.

Although atopic eczema can affect any part of the body, it most often affects the hands, insides of the elbows, backs of the knees and the face and scalp in children.

People with atopic eczema usually have periods when symptoms are less noticeable, as well as periods when symptoms become more severe (flare-ups).

When to seek medical advice
See a GP if you have symptoms of atopic eczema. They’ll usually be able to diagnose atopic eczema by looking at your skin and asking questions, such as:

whether the rash is itchy and where it appears
when the symptoms first began
whether it comes and goes over time
whether there’s a history of atopic eczema in your family
whether you have any other conditions, such as allergies or asthma
whether something in your diet or lifestyle may be contributing to your symptoms
Typically, to be diagnosed with atopic eczema you should have had an itchy skin condition in the last 12 months and 3 or more of the following:

visibly irritated red skin in the creases of your skin – such as the insides of your elbows or behind your knees (or on the cheeks, outsides of elbows, or fronts of the knees in children aged 18 months or under) at the time of examination by a health professional
a history of skin irritation occurring in the same areas mentioned above
generally dry skin in the last 12 months
a history of asthma or hay fever – children under 4 must have an immediate relative, such as a parent, brother or sister, who has 1 of these conditions
the condition started before the age of 2 (this does not apply to children under the age of 4)
Causes of atopic eczema
The exact cause of atopic eczema is unknown, but it’s clear it is not down to one single thing.

Atopic eczema often occurs in people who get allergies. “Atopic” means sensitivity to allergens.

It can run in families, and often develops alongside other conditions, such as asthma and hay fever.

The symptoms of atopic eczema often have certain triggers, such as soaps, detergents, stress and the weather.

Sometimes food allergies can play a part, especially in young children with severe eczema.

You may be asked to keep a food diary to try to determine whether a specific food makes your symptoms worse.

Allergy tests are not usually needed, although they’re sometimes helpful in identifying whether a food allergy may be triggering symptoms.

Treating atopic eczema
Treatment for atopic eczema can help to relieve the symptoms and many cases improve over time.

But there’s currently no cure and severe eczema often has a significant impact on daily life, which may be difficult to cope with physically and mentally.

There’s also an increased risk of skin infections.

Many different treatments can be used to control symptoms and manage eczema, including:

self-care techniques, such as reducing scratching and avoiding triggers
emollients (moisturising treatments) – used on a daily basis for dry skin
topical corticosteroids – used to reduce swelling, redness and itching during flare-ups
Other types of eczema
Eczema is the name for a group of skin conditions that cause dry, irritated skin.

Other types of eczema include:

discoid eczema – a type of eczema that occurs in circular or oval patches on the skin
contact dermatitis – a type of eczema that occurs when the body comes into contact with a particular substance
varicose eczema – a type of eczema that most often affects the lower legs and is caused by problems with the flow of blood through the leg veins
seborrhoeic eczema – a type of eczema where red, scaly patches develop on the sides of the nose, eyebrows, ears and scalp
dyshidrotic eczema (pompholyx) – a type of eczema that causes tiny blisters to erupt across the palms of the hands

Side Effects

Side effects are uncommon when using Betamethasone cream, however some potential side effects can include:

– A burning sensation when the cream is applied
– Increased itchiness when the cream is applied
– Propylene glycol can cause allergic reactions in some people
– Cetostearyl alcohol can cause local skin reactions (e.g. contact dermatitis)
– Chlorocresol can also cause allergic reactions.

If you have any concerns regarding any of the information listed above, or you experience a side effect no on this list, then cease usage and speak to your doctor as soon as possible.
