Pharmacology of Betaval 15 Cream

Betamethasone Dipropionate is an anti-inflammatory, anti-pruritic, and vasoconstrictive topical corticosteroid. Lipocortin peptides are produced by betamethasone dipropionate. Phospholipase A2, an enzyme that induces the breakdown of leukocyte lysosomal membranes and the release of arachidonic acid, is inhibited by lipocortin’s. Endogenous inflammatory mediators such as prostaglandins, kinins, and histamine are formed and released less as a result of this action.

Betamethasone Dipropionate can be absorbed via normal intact skin, according to pharmacokinetics. Corticosteroids have variable degrees of binding to plasma proteins. Corticosteroids are mostly processed in the liver. The kidneys excrete it.

Dosage & Administration of Betaval 15 Cream

Apply sparingly to the affected area two or three times daily until improvement occurs, then twice daily or less. The usual maximum duration of therapy is three weeks.

Interaction of Betaval 15 Cream

There is no information about drug interactions.


Hypersensitivity to Betamethasone Dipropionate, other corticosteroids, or any of the preparation’s ingredients. Betamethasone Dipropionate, like other topical corticosteroids, is contraindicated in viral skin infections including vaccinia, varicella, and Herpes simplex, as well as TB, acne rosacea, fungal skin infections (moniliasis), perioral dermatitis, and ulcerative diseases.

Side effects of Betaval 15 Cream

Paresthesia was recorded in 1.9 percent of patients in clinical trials, followed by a rash, edema, and secondary infection, all of which occurred in less than 1% of patients. Other side effects of the medication included scorching and dry skin in 1.6 percent of patients and stinging in less than 1% of individuals.

Precautions & Warnings

Because of the danger of glaucoma and cataracts, Betamethasone Dipropionate should not be used in or near the eyes. If irritation or sensitization develops as a result of using Betamethasone Dipropionate, the medication should be stopped and appropriate therapy started. If an infection is present, an appropriate antifungal or antibacterial treatment should be given. Betamethasone Dipropionate should be stopped until the infection has been properly controlled if a favorable response does not occur quickly.

Because corticosteroids are known to be absorbed through the skin, the likelihood of systemic effects should be considered in patients receiving long-term or substantial topical treatment. Betamethasone Dipropionate should not be used under occlusive dressings since it will increase the corticosteroid’s systemic absorption. The napkin can act as an occlusive dressing in infants, increasing absorption. When applying topical corticosteroids in patients with stasis dermatitis and other skin conditions with reduced circulation, appropriate precautions should be performed. The use of topical corticosteroid treatments for an extended period of time might cause striae or atrophy of the skin and subcutaneous tissue.
