Reviews for Betamethasone

Sort by:

For Dermatitis: "I had severe blisters on my hands and wrists. The blisters were in various stages, some forming under the skin, some filled fluid, some ruptured. I had 50 blisters on my left hand & wrist and about half that number on my right hand & wrist. The pain, burning, piercing pain was extreme. My doctor prescribed several different creams that did not work and then this Betamethasone Lotion. I finally had relief. This worked within minutes to relieve the pain and within 2 days to see amazing clearing of the blisters. I am so grateful for this medication."

For Dermatitis: "I've had severe eczema since I was 13. I'm now 30. My Dr has put me on so many different meds for it that I began to lose hope. It would swell up and get really itchy. I have eczema behind, on, and inside both of my ears. It's also embarrassing because people would ask if I knew I was bleeding out the ear all the time. After yrs of no relief I switched Dr's. The new Dr put me on betamethasone and after using it for only 2 weeks it cleared up to the point that it was almost gone! I thought nothing would help it and that I was stuck with it for the rest of my life with no relief. I'm glad I was wrong! Every couple of years I will get flare ups, and all I have to do is put the betamethasone on it and it's gone the next day. Definitely recommend this."

For Dermatological Disorders: "I had some real rash and redness from scratching too much. My doctor prescribed this cream for me and within a week my skin condition improved and I stopped scratching myself. I still have some skin discoloration but it is improving. Good cream for sure."

Betaderm (betamethasone) for Dermatological Disorders: "Wow, This actually worked wonders, I had a very serious skin infection as well as eczema, and within a week of using twice daily after baths, it completely relieved the symptoms, and blisters started to scab and heal! I still have had to use Betaderm on and off for the last few months, but in much more moderate amounts, but after having used numerous other creams, this is the only one that worked!"

Diprosone (betamethasone) for Dermatological Disorders: "I served in the middle east during the Iraq war. The weather in the desert was over 130 degrees, so I developed eczema. My mom was a nurse in Mexico and told me about diprosone. I tried it and it worked. So I have never looked back."

For Dermatitis: "I was prescribed this in the cream form for my severe eczema. This drug is the only thing that alleviated my symptoms. (Severe itching, raised, oozing bumps) My doctor advised me not to use this cream on areas of my body with thin skin (face, breasts, genitalia) because it could cause thinning of the skin in those areas.
