Bettamousse contains the active ingredient betamethasone valerate that fits into a group of medicines called topical corticosteroids. They work to reduce inflammation of the skin that has occurred from irritations. Skin inflammation is caused by a release of substances that are important to the immune system but cause the blood vessels to widen which results in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful. Within this foam formula, Bettamousse is specially designed for inflammation on the scalp.

When the betamethasone is applied to the skin it works within the cells to reduce the release of these inflammatory substances in order to decrease the swelling, redness and itching that is associated with certain skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.

Directions for using Bettamousse:

  • Bettamousse foam is usually applied to the scalp twice daily.
  • It should be applied and then massaged into irritated areas of the scalp.
  • The foam should then be left to dry and should not be washed out. If your hair needs to be washed, make sure it is washed and dried before application.
  • As soon as the condition starts to improve, you should use it less frequently, following the directions from your doctor.
  • Repeat courses may be necessary to control flare ups.
  • If you do not notice any improvement after 2-4 weeks of use, you should consult your doctor.

Caution before using Bettamousse:

  • Betnovate scalp application contains flammable alcohol. Do not use it near naked flames or lit objects, such as gas and electric fires and lit cigarettes, or near other sources of heat such as hairdryers.
  • This medicine is for external use on the scalp only. It must not be used on the face or any other part of the body apart from the scalp. Apply the foam as directed to the affected areas of the scalp.
  • Take care to avoid getting the foam on the face or in the eyes. Rinse with cold water if accidental contact occurs. Avoid applying it to broken skin.
  • Wash your hands after applying the foam to avoid accidentally transferring it to other areas.
  • If corticosteroids are used long-term, on large areas of skin, raw or broken skin, or under airtight dressings they are absorbed into the body more. This increases the risk of local side effects such as skin thinning, and those on other parts of the body, such as a decrease in the production of natural hormones by the adrenal glands. For this reason, continuous, long-term use of this medicine should be avoided wherever possible, particularly in children and on large areas of skin. You should only cover the affected area if instructed by your doctor. If you find you still need to use this medicine after two to four weeks because your skin has not improved you should consult your doctor. If this medicine is used to treat a child it should not usually be used for longer than five to seven days.
  • If you have been prescribed this medicine to treat psoriasis you should have regular check-ups with your doctor. This is because although corticosteroids may be useful for psoriasis in the short-term, they can sometimes make psoriasis worse, and may cause the condition to relapse into generalised pustular psoriasis after the treatment is stopped
  • If you think the area of skin you are treating has become infected you should stop using this medicine and consult your doctor.
  • This medication should not be used if you have any known sensitivity or allergy to its ingredients.
  • You should avoid this medication if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, unless it is considered essential by your doctor.

Use with caution in:

  • Children
  • Psoriasis

Not to be used in:

  • Children under the age of 1
  • Skin infected with virus (e.g. chicken pox, shingles), fungi (e.g. ringworm) or bacteria (e.g. impetigo)
