About BETAMIL GM CREAM 20GM

BETAMIL GM CREAM 20GM belongs to a class of dermatological medication ‘Topical Anti-Infectives with Corticosteroids’ used to treat skin conditions like eczema (itchy inflamed skin), psoriasis (red, itchy, scaly patch on skin), and other types of rash. Also, BETAMIL GM CREAM 20GM helps to reduce swelling, itching, and redness caused due to specific skin problems. Fungal infection is a skin disease in which a fungus attacks the tissue and causes infection. Fungal infections may be contagious (spread from one person to another). Bacterial infection is a condition in which harmful bacteria grow in the body and cause infection. It can infect any part of the body and multiply very quickly.

BETAMIL GM CREAM 20GM is a combination of three drugs, namely Betamethasone (corticosteroid), Gentamicin (antibiotic), and Miconazole (antifungal). Betamethasone belongs to the class of corticosteroids that works by acting inside skin cells and inhibits the release of certain chemical messengers in the body that cause redness, itching, and swelling. When the skin reacts to any allergens, such chemicals are released typically. Gentamicin works by causing bacteria to produce faulty and abnormal proteins. Thereby, kills the bacteria and clears the infection. The fungal cell membranes are essential for their survival as they prevent the entry of unwanted substances into the cells and stop the leakage of cell contents. Miconazole belongs to the class of antifungals that works by causing holes in the fungal cell membranes and kills fungi.

BETAMIL GM CREAM 20GM is only for external use. Take a small amount of BETAMIL GM CREAM 20GM on the finger and apply it as a thin layer on the clean and dry affected area. Avoid contact of BETAMIL GM CREAM 20GM with nose, ears, mouth, or eyes. In case BETAMIL GM CREAM 20GM comes in connection with these areas accidentally, rinse with water thoroughly. Some people may experience skin peeling, dry skin, itching, redness, irritation, or burning sensation at the site of application. Most of these side effects of BETAMIL GM CREAM 20GM do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects worsen or persist, please consult your doctor.

If you are allergic to BETAMIL GM CREAM 20GM, iodine, or any other medicines, please tell your doctor.
