Betasalic Ointment


Overview

Introduction

Betasalic Ointment is a combination medicine that effectively treats eczema and psoriasis. It stops the growth of skin cells, thus reducing scaly patches on the skin. It also reduces redness, itchiness, and swelling by reducing inflammation.

Betasalic Ointment is strictly advised for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. Apply it only on the affected areas of the skin. Always remember to tell your doctor if you have or had any other skin diseases. If you miss a dose, apply it as soon as you remember. Betasalic Ointment may make your skin sensitive to sunlight, therefore, excessive exposure to sunlight should be avoided while on this treatment. The use of this medicine may cause few side effects like dryness, peeling, redness, and burning sensation at the site of application. Drink plenty of water and use a moisturizer to overcome the side effects. If these side effects worsen or do not improve with time, inform your doctor.

How to use Betasalic Ointment

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and gently massage the ointment. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.

How Betasalic Ointment works

Betasalic Ointment is a combination of two medicines: Betamethasone and Salicylic Acid which treat eczema and psoriasis. Betamethasone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Salicylic Acid is a keratolytic medicine which breaks down keratin clumps, removes dead skin cells and softens the skin. It also enhances the absorption of Betamethasone into the skin.
