BETAMETHASONE

Information for patients
Drug Information •Betamethasone is for use on the scalp to treat skin diseases including psoriasis (scaly, pink patches of thickened skin) and seborrhoeic dermatitis (scaly, itchy patches of skin). •Betamethasone is suitable for use by adults, the elderly and children over the age of one year. •The active ingredient in this product is betamethasone. This is one of a group of medicines called corticosteroids (which should not be confused with ‘anabolic steroid’ tablets or injections misused by some athletes). •Betamethasone is a strong and fast acting corticosteroid and is intended for use on the scalp which tends not to respond very well to weaker medicines of this type. •Betamethasone works by reducing inflammation and calming down your immune system. •The product also works as an antiseptic, and includes an emollient (moisturiser) to help make the scalp feel more comfortable.

Possible Side Effects
General Information Like all medicines, Betamethasone can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them: •In rare cases skin irritation may occur. If this happens stop using the product. •In rare cases, treating psoriasis with this type of product may cause the development of the pustular form of the disease (blisters filled with pus). This explains why careful supervision by your doctor is required if you are treating scalp psoriasis. •Topical corticosteroids are usually well tolerated when used in the right amount and for the correct length of time. However, prolonged, excessive use, particularly in children or on skin that is bandaged or wrapped up, can cause local skin thinning (making the skin damage easily), and adrenal suppression (a type of hormone imbalance that causes generalised effects on the body). Stopping treatment normally corrects these side effects. If you are in any doubt about the treatment, or experience any of the above side effects or any other side effect not mentioned in this leaflet, stop using this product and tell your doctor or pharmacist.
