Betnovate Ointment is a topical ointment that is used to treat various skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and contact dermatitis. It belongs to the group of medicines known as corticosteroids and contains the active ingredient betamethasone valerate. 

Betnovate Ointment is known to be very effective and is usually prescribed when other medicines haven’t worked for skin treatments.

Betnovate Ointment is a steroid and contains the active ingredient betamethasone valerate. This medicine blocks the production of prostaglandins which are responsible for making the skin red, inflamed, swollen and itchy. 

The usual dosage of Betnovate Ointment is once or twice a day. The amount of ointment to be used is measured in fingertip units. One fingertip unit is equivalent to the amount which can be squeezed onto the end of your finger.  

For children, your clinician or medical team at MedsNow shall advise you about the right amount of ointment, depending on their age.  

Follow these steps to use the Betnovate Ointment: 

  • Clean your hands thoroughly and squeeze the required amount.  

  • Gently spread the ointment to form a thin layer over the affected area. 

  • Evenly smooth in the ointment into your skin. Follow the direction in which your hair grows. 

  • Make sure that you apply the ointment onto the entire affected area, and not just the worst areas. 

  • Wash your hands thoroughly after using the ointment.
