Q. What precautions should I take while using Betnovate-C Cream?
Do not use Betnovate-C Cream for longer periods of time than advised especially on the face as it may cause thinning of the skin. If it has to be applied over the eyelids, make sure it does not get into your eyes. Unless told by your doctor, do not apply a bandage or dressing to the area being treated, as this will increase absorption of the preparation and increase the risk of side-effects. This medicine should only be used by the patient and never be given to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.
Q. What would happen if I use a higher than the recommended dose of Betnovate-C Cream and for long periods?
The dosage and duration of using Betnovate-C Cream should be strictly according to the doctor’s advice. This medicine when used in higher doses and for longer periods can get absorbed in the blood and cause adrenal suppression and Cushing's syndrome. It can cause weight gain, high blood pressure and rounding of the face. Its application can cause a change in color of skin at the site of application. Veins beneath the skin become visible because of the thinning and weakening of the skin. There could also be an increased hair growth. If you experience an increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.
