Betnovate cream is indicated for the relief of inflammatory and pruritic (itchy) manifestations of steroid-responsive dermatoses. 

These include conditions such as atopic dermatitis (including infantile atopic dermatitis), nummular dermatitis (discoid eczema), prurigo nodularis, psoriasis (excluding widespread plaque psoriasis), lichen simplex chronicus (neurodermatitis) and lichen planus, seborrhoeic dermatitis, irritant or allergic contact dermatitis, discoid lupus erythematosus, adjunct to systemic steroid therapy in generalized erythroderma, and insect bite reactions. 

Betnovate cream contains the active ingredient betamethasone valerate, which is a potent topical corticosteroid. It works by reducing inflammation, redness, and itching in the affected areas of the skin.


  • Follow your healthcare provider's instructions exactly. This includes how much cream to apply, how often to apply it, and for how long.
  • Apply a thin layer of cream to the affected area only. 
  • Wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying the cream.
  • Apply the cream gently to the affected skin. Rub it in lightly until absorbed.
  • Use the cream for the prescribed length of time, even if your symptoms improve. Stopping the cream too early could allow your condition to come back.


  • Do not use Betnovate cream on your face for long periods of time unless directed by your healthcare provider. Long-term use on the face can cause thinning of the skin.
  • Do not use Betnovate cream to treat any skin condition that has not been diagnosed by your healthcare provider.
  • Do not cover the treated area with a bandage or other dressing unless specifically instructed by your healthcare provider. Covering the area can increase the risk of side effects.
  • Do not use Betnovate cream in your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Do not use Betnovate cream on broken or infected skin unless directed by your healthcare provider.
  • Do not use expired Betnovate cream.

Common side effects:

  • Itching or burning sensation at the application site
  • Thinning of the skin (usually after prolonged use)
  • Changes in skin pigmentation
  • Dryness
  • Redness
  • Skin irritation, including itching, burning, dryness, and redness

Serious side effects (seek medical attention if experienced):

  • Allergic reactions, such as rash, itching, swelling of the face, tongue, or throat, severe dizziness, or trouble breathing
  • Stomach ulcers (if large areas of the skin are treated, especially for a long time and under tight dressings)
  • High blood pressure
  • Delayed wound healing
  • Muscle weakness
  • Increased body fluid
  • Eye problems
  • Blurred vision or other visual disturbances (especially when applying the cream to the face)
  • Risk of allergic reactions or infections if used on eczema around a leg ulcer

This is not an exhaustive list, and other side effects may occur. If you experience any unusual or severe side effects while taking  Betnovate cream,  contact your healthcare provider for medical advice.

Don't use Betnovate cream for any undiagnosed skin condition. See a healthcare provider for diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Avoid using Betnovate cream on your face for extended periods unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so. Long-term use on the face can thin the skin.

Don't cover the treated area with bandages or dressings unless your healthcare provider tells you to. Covering the skin can worsen side effects.

Don't use Betnovate cream in your eyes, nose, or mouth.

Avoid using Betnovate cream on broken or infected skin without consulting your healthcare provider.

Talk to your healthcare provider before using Betnovate cream if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Inform your healthcare provider about all medications you take, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Betnovate cream can interact with some medications.

Stop using Betnovate cream and contact your healthcare provider if you experience any burning, itching, or stinging after application.

Don't use expired Betnovate cream.
