Betasol Lotion

Betasol Lotion
Betasol lotion contains a topical corticosteroid called clobetasol propionate, used for 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.


  • Itching is also known as pruritus which means a desire to scratch
  • Scratching temporarily relieves the itch but can damage the skin, which sometimes results in more itching.
  • It is a common symptom of hives, dry skin and eczema, as well as contact dermatitis and fungal skin infections.
  • Betasol lotion reduces itching, swelling and redness due to its anti-inflammatory action.
  • This is a chronic skin condition.
  • Psoriasis causes red, flaky and crusty patches of skin typically on the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back.
  • By and large, people with lighter skin have patches that appear red and scaly. By comparison, people with darker skin or brown or black skin, usually have patches that look brownish-grey, dark brown, purple, or ashen grey.
  • Whilst there is no cure for psoriasis, there are ways to reduce symptoms with topical corticosteroids.
  • Therefore, Betasol lotion 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
Seborrheic dermatitis
  • This is a skin condition characterized by the appearance of skin flakes on scalp, hair, eyebrows, beard, and shoulders.
  • Common causes include irritated, oily skin or dry skin, as well as fungus infection and eczema.
  • The most common symptom of Seborrheic dermatitis is an itchy scalp. Also, this leads to redness in the itchy area of the scalp.
  • Topical corticosteroids help relieve symptoms such as itching, swelling, redness and scaling.
  • This is another chronic condition that causes the skin to become itchy, red, dry and cracked.
  • Eczema can affect any part of your body but it typically affects the back or front of the knee, around the neck and scalp, as well as hands, cheeks and elbows.
  • Treatment for eczema includes using an emollient or oil-based moisturiser, topical corticosteroids, and avoiding triggers.
  • In eczema, Betasol lotion helps in reducing redness, itching and swelling. Furthermore, it reduces dryness and crusting, as well as scaling.


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