Betnovate Ointment contains the active ingredient betamethasone, which fits into a group of medicines called topical corticosteroids that work to reduce inflammation of the skin. Inflammation occurs as a result of an allergy or irritation of the skin that causes a release of various substances that are important in the immune system. These substances then cause blood vessels to widen and leads to the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful.
When the betamethasone is applied to the skin, it works inside the cells to reduce the release of these inflammatory substances in order to reduce swelling, redness and itching that is associated with conditions like eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. It can also be used to relieve skin inflammations due to allergies or irritants, rashes caused by excessive scratching, reactions to bites and stings and various other inflammatory skin conditions.
Betnovate in its ointment formula is best suited for dry, scaly areas of skin as it has a thicker and greasier consistency.
