What is Betnovate Scalp Application?

Betnovate Scalp Application is a topical treatment used to treat scalp conditions like psoriasis or seborrhoeic dermatitis. It contains a medicine called betamethasone valerate. Betamethasone belongs to a group of medicines called topical corticosteroids. It is also available as a cream or ointment to treat skin conditions in other parts of the body. 

Betnovate Scalp application is applied directly to the scalp and can help to reduce inflammation, itchiness, and redness. Betnovate Scalp Application is classed as a potent steroid.

How does Betnovate Scalp work?

Many skin conditions, like psoriasis and dermatitis, can cause inflammation and make skin itchy, painful, swollen, and red. Inflammation is caused by chemicals released by the body in the skin. Corticosteroids like Betnovate help to stop the chemicals that trigger inflammation being released. This helps to reduce the redness, itchiness, and improve other symptoms.

Betnovate Scalp Application is a treatment specific to the scalp. Steroid creams and ointments may not penetrate the scalp and hair effectively but the Betnovate scalp solution is formulated to effectively treat medical conditions in the scalp.

How to use Betnovate Scalp Application

To apply the liquid, unscrew that cap and place the nozzle on the affected area of your scalp. Squeeze the bottle to cover the area with a thin and even layer of liquid. This does not have to be rubbed in, but some people prefer to rub it in. Your scalp will feel cool until the liquid has dried. Wash your hands before and after applying the lotion.

The Betnovate scalp lotion is flammable and you should keep away from fires and flames during and after application. Smoking may also be dangerous when using this treatment.

Betnovate Scalp Application is usually applied once in the morning and once at night. When the condition improves, it might be reduced to once a day or even less frequently. You should always use the treatment exactly as your doctor has told you to. Usually, topical corticosteroids are not prescribed for long term use because of the risk of side effects.

Alternative Treatments

Various treatments exist to treat scalp conditions like severe dandruff, dermatitis, and seborrhoeic dermatitis. Over the counter shampoos such as Capasal, Alphosyl, and Nizoral can be effective at improving scalp conditions and do not require a prescription. Products containing coal tar or salicylic acid may also be effective.


Elocon Scalp Lotion is another prescription-only medicine that contains the potent steroid mometasone furoate. Many people with scalp conditions try various products to see which treatment is best at improving their symptoms. People who have used Betnovate Scalp Application but have not seen an improvement may find benefit from using Elocon Scalp Lotion.

Betnovate Scalp Application should not be used by people who have had a previous allergic reaction to betamethasone or any of the other ingredients. People with an active skin infection on their scalp should not use the treatment until the infection has cleared.
