Hello collinsamy, & welcome to the sitre. You didn't say what the bethamethasone was orignally prescribed for, & it can be a tricky drug to be using for just anything, How do you know, first of all this is just a heat rash, & are you talking about yourself or maybe a child or baby? I ask since babies tend to get heat rash quite often, & would not suggest you use this on one. I suggest you ask your doctor before using this on a heat rash or get the rash diagnosed first. I am giving you the link to read about this drug, & hope it can better answer your question. It's sounds like in your question, that this was prescribed for something different, so please check with your doctor first...
