In Treatment of Allergic skin conditions

Betasalic Cream is effective in treating allergic skin conditions with inflammation and itching such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.

In treating psoriasis, it reduces the scaly, itchy patches which may develop on the elbows, knees, scalp and other parts of the body.
