Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional. Brands and generics both contain the same active ingredient(s) and are medically equivalent. Some brands are marketed under different names by the same manufacturer depending on the country of origin. Images are provided as a reference only, the received medicine may vary in packaging, color, pill shape, etc, from one batch to the next. For an item marked "generic" any quality brand may be sent, however you will always receive the active ingredients ordered in the strength(s) ordered.

Betamethasone Scalp Lotion

Betamethasone scalp lotion is a corticosteroid available only with a doctor's prescription. The active ingredient in this medication is betamethasone valerate.


Betamethasone scalp lotion treats skin issues that cause redness, swelling, itching, or other discomforts. Betamethasone foam is used to treat scalp problems.

Alternatives include Diprolene cream and Hydrocortisone.


A small dose of betamethasone scalp lotion should be applied to the scalp before going to bed and again in the morning until symptom improvement. It may therefore be possible to sustain development by taking it only once per day or less often.

Method of administration

Children's population

Betamethasone scalp lotion is not recommended for children under the age of one year.

Children are more prone to local and systemic adverse effects from topical corticosteroids and, in general, require shorter treatment courses and less powerful drugs. Durations should be restricted to five days, and occlusion must not be utilized.


Clinical trials have found no variations in responsiveness between older and younger individuals. The elderly have a higher prevalence of impaired hepatic or renal function, which may prolong clearance if systemic absorption occurs. As a result, the smallest amount for the shortest period should be utilized to provide the desired therapeutic effect.


  • Hypersensitivity to the active ingredient
  • Scalp infections 
  • Dermatoses  including dermatitis, in children under the age of one year

Special precautions and warnings for usage

Betamethasone valerate must be administered with care in individuals who have a background of sensitivity to many other corticosteroids on a local level.

As a consequence of enhanced systemic absorption of topical steroids, certain people may develop Cushing's syndrome resulting in glucocorticosteroid deficiency.

If one of the above occurs, gradually go off the medicine by reducing the number of times application is done or switching to a less potent corticosteroid. Glucocorticosteroid insufficiency can occur if treatment is abruptly stopped.

The following are risk factors for higher systemic effects:

  • Apply to regions of thin skin
  • Use on skin that has been injured
  • Time of exposure
  • Broad application to a large surface area
  • Increasing stratum corneum hydration

Children's population

Treatment regimens for babies and children under the age of 12 should be restricted to five days, and occlusion must be avoided. Adrenal suppression can result from long sustained topical corticosteroid therapy, which should be avoided wherever possible.

Risk of infection with occlusion

The warm, humid environment present inside folds of skin or created by obstructive dressings promotes bacteria development. Before putting on a fresh obstructive dressing, it is necessary to clean the skin.

Use in the treatment of psoriasis.

Rebound relapses, tolerance development, risk of localized pustular psoriasis, and development of systemic or local toxicity due to decreased skin barrier function have all been observed in some instances while topical corticosteroids are used for psoriasis.

Visual disturbance

The use of systemic and topical corticosteroids may cause visual disruption.

Also, patients should be cautious to:

  • Avoid fire and heat following application, including the use of a hair drier
  • Avoid smoking when using Betnovate scalp application
  • Keep lotion away from eyes

Drug Interactions

Co-administered drugs impede CYP3A4 (e.g., itraconazole, ritonavir) corticosteroid metabolism, resulting in greater systemic exposure. The clinical significance of this interaction is determined by the dose and method of administration of the corticosteroids and the effectiveness of the CYP3A4 inhibitor.

Effects on the ability to steer and operate machinery

There's been no research on the influence of betamethasone valerate on driving capacity or machinery operation. The adverse response profile of topical betamethasone valerate would not predict a negative impact on such activities.
