What is Diprolene?
Betamethasone is a highly potent steroid that prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation.
Diprolene (for the skin) is used to treat the inflammation and itching caused by a number of skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
Diprolene may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
How should I use Diprolene?
Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Use the medicine exactly as directed.
Do not take by mouth. Topical medicine is for use only on the skin. Do not use on open wounds or on sunburned, windburned, dry, or irritated skin. Rinse with water if this medicine gets in your eyes or mouth.
Read and carefully follow any Instructions for Use provided with your medicine. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you do not understand these instructions.
Wash your hands before and after using this medicine, unless you are using the medicine to treat the skin on your hands.
Apply a small amount to the affected area and rub it gently into the skin. Do not apply Diprolene over a large area of skin.
Do not cover the treated skin area unless your doctor tells you to. Covering treated areas can increase the amount of medicine absorbed through your skin and may cause harmful effects.
Use Diprolene regularly to get the most benefit. Stop using the medicine once your symptoms clear up.
Call your doctor if your skin condition does not improve after 2 weeks, or if it gets worse.
Do not use Diprolene for longer than 2 weeks in a row. Do not use Sernivo or Luxiq for longer than 4 weeks.
Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
The foam is flammable. Do not use near high heat or open flame. Do not smoke until the foam has completely dried on your skin.
