Celestone (betamethasone) for Inflammatory Conditions: “I used Gelmicin cream that contains betamethasone to treat my rosacea. It worked, however because betamethasone is a vascodilator, my face became red and I looked like I had a sunburn. My doctor instructed me to stop using gelmicin and now I use a sulfur-based face wash that is not very effective.”
Celestone (betamethasone) for Inflammatory Conditions: “First, I don’t understand why “Incidence not known” precedes lists of side effects? Are they possible side effects, or not? It’s Friday evening four days post 2.5 ml Celestone/Xylocaine guided injection into the left subacromial-subdeltoid bursa, painless I had flushing day 2-3, now past. No pain relief from the injection yet. The last 24 hours have been taking ibuprofen 6 hourly after food. Resting most of day as too uncomfortable to do much, though I have tried. Still very uncomfortable. New symptom is a bit like sinus pain in that it’s manifesting as painful facial bones and other areas around my upper arm and head and neck more on the left.”
For Bursitis: “Took betamethasone injection for shoulder bursitis and tendinitis, the next day I was bright red, nervous, stressed out and paranoid. I will never take this injection any longer, 5 days later and my face and body is flushed, skin on face is extremely hot, burning, Doctors have no clue what to do, don't recommend.”

Celestone (betamethasone) for Dermatological Disorders: “I was prescribed Celestone for persistent and painful dermatitis of the hands. The condition had proven resistant to topical treatment over a number of years. I am a Crohn's patient, and I have since seen a report that dermatitis is sometimes a consequence of having Crohn's Disease. Treating the dermatitis systemically, rather than topically, produced almost immediate results. (I was taking a minimum dose of Celestone). In addition, my Crohn's symptoms disappeared during the course of steroid therapy for dermatitis and for some time after discontinuing. A side effect was a reduced bone density which has since been reversed.”
For Inflammatory Conditions: “I received the injection for my herniated disc pain. I have chronic depression also. A few days later my mental state became very different. Severely anxious, panicked, confused, paranoid. I had severe motion sickness even when I was not moving: nausea, upset burning sensation in my stomach, headache, acne, and very hot skin. Sweating immensely. I just wanted to warn people who have the same condition as I do. It did relieve a lot of the pain. ”
For Inflammatory Conditions: “I had Pain stemming from spinal stenosis. When I use this I have No side effects following an injection. Great relief from excruciating pain in the legs, due to spinal stenosis. I get a "real" cortisone injection every 4 months. I use the Betametazone only as a last resort, because I'm told it can be harmful with frequent use. What do I know? Nothing, except it works for at least four days when I am desperate for relief and doctors won't give anything for pain. I live in Mexico where I can actually buy it without a prescription.”
For Inflammatory Conditions: “I took this medication last year and had NO side effects. The relief of my herniated disks(4) was completely gone for 11 months. I would recommend it to anyone with sciatic nerve pain.”
