Betaderm Plus Lotion is a combination of two medicines: Betamethasone Topical and Zinc Sulfate. Betamethasone Topical is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Zinc Sulfate has astringent and antiseptic action.
Betaderm Plus Lotion may be unsafe to use during pregnancy. Animal studies have shown adverse effects on the foetus, however, there are limited human studies. The benefits from use in pregnant women may be acceptable despite the risk. Please consult your doctor.
Betaderm Plus Lotion is probably safe to use during lactation.
Limited human data suggests that the drug does not represent a significant risk to the baby.
