How Betamil GM Cream works

Betamil GM Cream is a combination of three medicines: Betamethasone, Gentamicin and Miconazole, which treats skin infections. Betamethasone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Gentamicin is an antibiotic which stops the growth of bacteria while Miconazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi on the skin. Together, they treat your skin infection effectively.

FAQs

No, do not stop taking Betamil GM and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared.

Q. How long does Betamil GM takes to work?

Usually, Betamil GM starts working soon after applying it. However, it may take some days to kill all the harmful bacteria and make you feel better.

Q. How to use Betamil GM?

Betamil GM should be used as advised by the doctor or as per the instructions on the label of the medicine. Apply a thin layer of this medicine to cover the affected areas. The dose would depend on the condition for which it is prescribed. Wash your hands after using it, unless it is used for treating infection of the hands.

Q. Can I stop taking Betamil GM when my symptoms are relieved?

No, do not stop using Betamil GM and complete the full course of treatment, even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cured.

Q. What precautions should I take while using Betamil GM?

Do not use Betamil GM for longer than the prescribed period of time, especially on the face as it may cause thinning of the skin. If it has to be applied over the eyelid, make sure it does not get into your eyes. Unless told by your doctor, do not apply a bandage or dressing to the area being treated, as this will increase absorption of the preparation and increase the risk of side-effects. This medicine should only be used by the patient and never be given to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.

Q. What would happen if I use a higher than the recommended dose of Betamil GM for long periods?

The dosage and duration of using Betamil GM should be strictly according to the doctor’s advice. This medicine when used in higher doses and for longer periods can get absorbed in the blood and cause adrenal suppression and Cushing's syndrome. It can cause weight gain, high blood pressure and rounding of the face. Its application can cause a change in color of skin at the site of application. Veins beneath the skin become visible due to the thinning and weakening of the skin. There could be an increased hair growth. If you experience an increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. What are the recommended instructions for the storage and disposal of Betamil GM?

Keep this medicine in the packet or the container it came in. Store it according to the instructions mentioned on the pack or label. Keep it away from pets and children.

Q. What are the contraindications associated with the use of Betamil GM?

Use of Betamil GM is considered to be harmful for patients with known allergy to any of the components or excipients of this medicine. Avoid its use for treatment of any viral infections (herpes or chickenpox) or for treatment of acne or rosacea. Avoid its use in itchy areas which are not red and around the genitalia and anus. Consult your doctor before using it for any condition.
