Betasol Cream
Betasol cream contains a topical corticosteroid called clobetasol propionate, used in the treatment of skin conditions like frequently relapsing eczema, psoriasis (thickened patches of inflamed, red skin, often covered by silvery scales), lichen planus, (a skin disease that causes itchy, reddish-purple, flat-topped bumps on the wrists, forearms or lower legs), discoid lupus erythematosus (a skin disease that affects face, ears and scalp causing scarring and increased sensitivity of the affected skin to sunlight), dermatitis and other skin conditions unresponsive to milder steroid creams or lotions.


  • Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that causes red, flaky and crusty patches of skin. These typically occur on the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back.
  • In general, people with lighter skin have patches that appear red and scaly. By comparison, people with darker, brown or black skin, usually have patches that look brownish-grey, dark brown, purple, or ashen grey.
  • While there isn’t a cure for psoriasis, there are ways to reduce symptoms with topical corticosteroids.
  • Therefore, Betasol cream can be a suitable therapy as it reduces troublesome symptoms of psoriasis e.g. itching, swelling, and redness, as well as scaling and plaque formation
  • This is also known as pruritus which means a desire to scratch
  • Scratching temporarily relieves itching but can damage the skin, which sometimes causes even more itching.
  • Itching is a frequent symptom of hives, dry skin and eczema, as well as contact dermatitis and fungal skin infections.
  • Betasol cream reduces itching, swelling and redness due to its anti-inflammatory action.
Seborrheic dermatitis
  • Seborrheic dermatitis is a skin condition. It is characterized by the appearance of skin flakes on scalp, hair, eyebrows, beard, and shoulders.
  • Common causes include oily, irritated skin or dry skin, as well as fungus infections and eczema.
  • The most common symptom is an itching scalp. Furthermore, this leads to redness in the itchy area of the scalp.
  • Topical corticosteroids help relieve symptoms like redness, itching, swelling and scaling.
  • Eczema is another chronic condition. It causes the skin to become itchy, red, dry and cracked.
  • Eczema can affect any part of your body but it mostly affects the front or back of the knee area, around the neck and scalp, as well as hands, cheeks and elbows.
  • Treatment includes using an emollient or oil-based moisturizer, topical corticosteroids, and avoiding triggers.
  • In eczema, Betasol cream helps in reducing redness, itching and swelling. Furthermore, Betasol cream reduces dryness and crusting, as well as scaling.


Lichen simplex
  • Lichen simplex starts as an initial itch, with chronic scratching and/or rubbing. This results in further itching and inflammation, creating a vicious circle.
  • Lichen simplex isn’t contagious.
  • It appears as dry, scaly patches of skin in easily accessible areas, like the hands, arms, head and neck, as well as the genitals.
  • These patches are hyperpigmented, lichenified plaques (single or multiple) in angular, oval or irregular shapes.
  • Lichenified skin is thickened and leathery with exaggerated skin creases. The body produces thickened skin to protect itself from the chronic scratching and rubbing.
  • Moreover, lichen simplex may be secondary to other skin disorders such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis and contact dermatitis.
