Betaderm Cream is indicated for the treatment of a variety of skin conditions, including eczema, dermatitis, allergies, and rash. It contains betamethasone, a medium-strength corticosteroid, which helps reduce swelling, itching, and redness associated with these types of skin conditions.


  • Betaderm Cream is intended for use on the skin only. 
  • Before applying the cream, wash and dry your hands.
  • Clean and dry the affected area, then apply a thin film of the medication to the affected area. Gently rub it in as directed by your healthcare provider, typically 1 to 3 times daily. 
  • After applying the medication, wash your hands unless you are using the medication to treat the hands. 
  • Use this medication only for the specific condition for which it was prescribed.
  • If the condition persists or worsens after 2 weeks, inform your healthcare provider.


  • Do not apply the cream to the face, groin, or underarms unless specifically directed by your healthcare provider.
  • Do not bandage, cover, or wrap the treated area unless instructed to do so by your healthcare provider.
  • When applying the medication near the eyes, care should be taken to avoid getting it in the eyes, as this may worsen or cause glaucoma. It should also be avoided in the nose or mouth. If the medication comes into contact with these areas, they should be rinsed with plenty of water.
  • Do not use this cream for longer than prescribed.

Long-term or Severe Side Effects:

  • Rarely, if the medication is absorbed from the skin into the bloodstream, it can lead to side effects of too much corticosteroid. These side effects are more likely in children and in people who use the medication for a long time or over large areas of the skin. Such effects may include weight loss, vision problems, and increased thirst/urination.

Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, consult a healthcare provider.

Use Betaderm Cream as prescribed by a healthcare provider and seek medical advice if any concerning side effects occur. 

If you are allergic to Betaderm Cream or any other medicines, inform your healthcare provider before using the cream. If you experience an allergic reaction, seek medical attention immediately.

Limited information is available about the use of Betaderm Cream in pregnant women. Avoid using it unless prescribed by a healthcare provider. If recommended for treatment during breastfeeding, it should not be applied to the breasts to avoid accidental ingestion by the infant.

Do not use Betaderm Cream on large areas of the body for a long time (such as every day for many weeks or months) unless directed by your healthcare provider. Prolonged use over a large area of the skin may cause adverse effects.

Always consult a qualified health provider with any questions or concerns regarding the use of Betaderm Cream or any other medication.
