Betacap Solution is a scalp application containing Betamethasone Valerate, a topical corticosteroid, as an active ingredient. It is used for reducing inflammation of the skin. The irritation of the skin causes the immune system to release various chemicals that cause the surrounding blood vessels to widen, resulting in the affected area becoming itchy, swollen, and red. These symptoms are observed in eczema and dermatitis.

Betamethasone Valerate 0.1% is a potent corticosteroid. Betamethasone is generally prescribed for the treatment of inflammatory disorders of the skin, such as psoriasis and eczema. Betamethasone is the treatment option when weaker corticosteroids proved to be ineffective solutions.

Inflammation of the skin is due to the release by the immune system of various substances that cause the irritated area to become red, itchy, swollen, and painful like in the case of eczema or dermatitis.

When Betacap Solution with Betamethasone is applied to the skin, it works inside the cells to inhibit the release of the substances that cause the inflammation. The medicine reduces swelling, itching, and redness of the skin.

Betacap Solution should be applied sparingly to the irritated areas of the scalp, using the nozzle of the bottle. The solution may be rub to the scalp if you prefer it that way but it should be let to dry. Leave the betamethasone on the scalp by not washing it off. If there is a need to wash your hair, wash it first and let dry before you start applying the solution to the scalp.

Take precaution to ensure that the scalp application will not run onto the face, particularly into the eyes. If an accidental application to the face occurs, wash it with cold water. Avoid applying the solution to the broken skin.

Wash and dry your hands thoroughly after applying the solution to avoid the accidental transfer of the solution to other areas.

 

Betacap Solution contains alcohol, which is a flammable substance. Do not use the solution near flames or lit objects, such as gas and electric fires or lit cigarettes, or near sources of heat such as a hairdryer.

Betacap Solution is for external use on the scalp only. It must not be used on the face or a part of the body other than the scalp.

Betacap Solution must be applied thinly to the affected areas of the scalp.

Long-term use of corticosteroids, use on large areas of the skin, raw or broken skin, or under airtight dressings will cause the medicine to be absorbed more into the body, which will increase the risk of side effects. You should cover only the area being treated if instructed by your doctor.

Betacap Solution scalp application is usually applied twice a day. Use the solution less frequently the moment you notice improvements in your condition.

If there is no improvement in the condition of your scalp after two to four weeks of treatment, you should consult with your doctor. In case there is a flare-up of eczema or psoriasis, you may repeat the course of treatment but should be done only on the advice of your doctor.
