POSOLOGY AND METHOD OF ADMINISTRATION


Adults and children:
It is applied once to twice daily. In most cases, a thin layer of the cream or ointment should be applied to the affected area of the skin twice daily. In some patients, adequate efficacy may be achieved with less frequent application.

Betametazon cream is especially suitable for wet lesions, and the ointment for dry, lichenificated or scaly lesions.

Control over the dosage regimen may be achieved during intermittent and maintenance therapy by using products containing paraffin oil or white wax. Such control may be necessary for mild and improving dry skin conditions requiring low dose steroid treatment.
