Why is Prevex B prescribed?
Betamethasone (Prevex B) cream is prescribed for the treatment of redness, itchiness, and swelling caused by several skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
What does it do?
Eczema is a condition where the skin becomes dry, extremely itchy and may develop red and inflamed patches. Psoriasis is a condition where the skin becomes itchy and it may sting or burn, making the skin look more inflamed. Betamethasone belongs to a drug class called corticosteroids and it works by stimulating the release of substances found in the skin to relieve redness, itching, and swelling.
How should I apply it?
Prevex B and its generic equivalents are currently available as a 0.1% cream. It should only be applied to the skin. Avoid getting Prevex B into your eyes or mouth.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only use this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if used properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, apply it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never apply two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before applying Prevex B?
Before applying Betamethasone, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to food or to the drug itself as it may contain several inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or problems.
Inform your doctor about your past and current medical history especially if you have or have had diabetes, liver disease, adrenal gland problems, cataracts, or glaucoma.
Consult your doctor regarding all the other medications you use before getting surgery.
