How does Betnovate work?

The active ingredient in Betnovate is betamethasone, which is a type of medication known as a corticosteroid. It is a topical treatment that is used to reduce the inflammation and soreness that can develop as a result of conditions like haemorrhoids. This inflammation is the body's natural reaction at dealing with things like infections. Sometimes, inflammation can lead to further inflammation, running the risk of an infection occurring. When applied directly onto the affected area, it works to reduce both swelling and itchiness. Betamethasone is also versatile, providing effective relief for people suffering from skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

What are the benefits?

A key benefit of Betnovate is that it can be used to treat the symptoms of a wide range of conditions. When used as a treatment for haemorrhoids, it can provide almost instantaneous relief from the swelling and soreness associated with this condition. It can also be used as an effective treatment for skin conditions like eczema. Betamethasone is a high potency steroid treatment, which can provide an alternative for people who have not seen good results from the weaker treatments that are available.

Who is suitable for this treatment?

Betnovate is suitable for people who are suffering from the symptoms of haemorrhoids. However, there are people who may not be suitable for this medication based on their medical history.

  • This is not designed as a treatment for viral skin infections like those associated with herpes simplex.
