Description

What is Betacap?

Betacap Scalp Application is a strong, fast-acting topical steroid solution which is used to treat inflammatory scalp disorders. The active ingredient consists of  betamethasone valerate 0.1% – a potent steroid. If treatment is suitable for you, a supply can be made by our pharmacist, under a patient group direction. However, if you are not eligible, a supply will not be made and a full refund will be given.

How does Betacap work?

When the skin becomes irritated, the immune system releases various chemicals which cause the surrounding blood vessels to widen. This results in the affected area becoming red, itchy, swollen and painful. These symptoms are commonly seen in conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.

Betacap contains the active ingredient betamethasone valerate, which is a topical corticosteroid (steroid). Corticosteroids like betamethasone are used to reduce inflammation.

Corticosteroids come in a range of potencies with Betamethasone Valerate 0.1% being classed as a potent corticosteroid. Betamethasone is generally prescribed to treat inflammatory skin disorders, including; eczema and psoriasis. Usually, betamethasone will only be considered if weaker corticosteroids have proven ineffective.

When the Betacap scalp solution is applied to the affected area, it is absorbed into the skin, where it begins to work inside the cells — inhibiting the release of the chemicals that cause inflammation. This reduces swelling, itching and redness.
