Betnovate is a powerful medicine. Do not exceed the duration of treatment prescribed by the doctor, which is usually 2-4 weeks, as otherwise skin damage can occur.

If a skin disease does not respond to treatment within a few days or even worsens, consult your doctor. An allergy or an infection could be the cause. Also let him or her know if you experience itching and redness, blisters, excessive thinning of the skin, or injuries.

Corticosteroids can mask symptoms of an allergic skin reaction to any of the ingredients in the preparation.

Uninterrupted long-term use is only to be carried out on express medical prescription.

A large-area application (more than 10% of the body surface) and an application on areas of the skin where the active ingredient can pass into the blood more easily (open wounds, damaged skin, in skin folds, in the bends of the joints as well as between the fingers or toes, at the skin / mucous membrane boundaries and around the eyes) should be avoided.

Tell your doctor if your vision is blurred or visual disturbances occur. Your doctor will decide whether an ophthalmologist should be called in to clarify the possible causes (including clouding of the lens, glaucoma or other rare diseases) of your vision problems.

If you have eczema in the area of ​​a leg ulcer, using a topical corticosteroid may increase the risk of an allergic reaction or infection in the ulcer area.
