About Decdan B Injection 1 ml

Decdan B Injection 1 ml belongs to a class of drugs called corticosteroids used to treat symptoms associated with allergic reactions or inflammatory processes such as redness, swelling, and itching. It is used to treat severe allergic reactions, including reaction to drugs, local inflammation of joints or tendons of the eye, status asthmaticus (an extreme form of asthma), acute adrenal crisis, severe shock (collapse) due to injury, surgical or accidental trauma or overwhelming infection and soft tissue lesions such as tenosynovitis (inflammation of tendon sheath), tennis elbow, and bursitis (inflammation of fluid-filled sacs called bursae that cushion the joints).

Decdan B Injection 1 ml contains Betamethasone, a steroid 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 type of allergens, such chemicals are released normally.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Allergy: It is a condition that occurs when the immune system reacts to a foreign substance that is typically not harmful to your body.

Some might be allergic to certain foods, certain medications, and seasonal allergies like hay fever, pollen, or pet dander. The symptoms of an allergic reaction include itching, rash, scratchy throat, itchy or watery eyes, hives or itchy red spots on the skin, or allergic rhinitis (which causes sneezing or nasal congestion). 

Inflammation: It is a response generated by damage to living tissues. This response is a defence mechanism to protect the body from injury, infection, or disease. The symptoms of inflammation include redness, pain, swelling, heat, or loss of function.
