Retino-A (Tretinoin 20gm Cream) (BVLG003)
Retino-A (Tretinoin 20gm Cream) contains tretinoin which is an active metabolite of Vitamim A and is a keratolytic medication that affects the way skin cells behave, reducing symptoms of acne as well as age spots and fine wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging. Retino-A (Tretinoin 20gm Cream) prevents formation of new pimples and blackheads (comedones) by blocking the hardening processes of the outer skin layer (keratinisation and cornification) and increasing the shedding of old hardened skin cells, while at the same time promoting growth of new skin cells. The combined effect of these actions is to speed up skin cell turnover, clear up pimples and blackheads and reduce the spread of acne. This also works for aging or damaged skin where age spots and fine wrinkles are replaced by new skin cells giving the effect of lightening and smoothing the skin.

Betnovate (Betamethasone Valerate 20g Cream) (427847)

What is Betnovate (Betamethasone Valerate 20g Cream)?

Betnovate (Betamethasone Valerate 20g Cream) is a trade name of the active ingredient Betamethasone. It is an active synthetic corticosteroid (analog of the hormone of adrenal cortex) of the local action, giving a fast effect in cases of the inflammatory dermatosis (skin diseases). This drug provides an anti-inflammatory local, anti-allergic, antiedematous and antiproliferative action. It has the stronger vasoconstrictive action than other glucocorticosteroids. It provides the stronger the narrowing of the blood vessels and reduces the blood circulation, and this stimulates less the development of the allergic reactions.

Betnovate cream is a rather safe drug by means of the local use. It is rather poor absorbed through the skin, so that it does not cause systemic effects.

Affecting the skin there is a prevention of the acentric accumulation of neutrophils, and it leads to the reduction of exudation, production of cytokines, inhibition of mugration of macrophages, leading to the reduction of the allergic and inflammatory processes.


How does Betnovate work?

Betnovate products contain the active ingredient betamethasone, which is a type of medicine called a topical corticosteroid. Betamethasone cream and ointment are also available without a brand name, ie as the generic medicine.

Corticosteroids (also known as steroids) are medicines used for reducing inflammation. Skin inflammation may occur as a result of an allergic reaction, or irritation of the skin. It is caused by the immune system releasing substances that make blood vessels in the skin widen. This makes the irritated area become red, swollen, itchy and painful, as is seen in dermatitis or eczema.

When betamethasone is applied to the skin it acts inside cells to decrease the release of these inflammatory substances. This reduces swelling, redness and itching.

There is a range of potencies of corticosteroids available for application to the skin. Betnovate cream, ointment and lotion contain betamethasone valerate 0.1% and are classed as potent corticosteroids. They are prescribed to treat various inflammatory skin disorders that have not responded to milder steroids.

Betnovate cream is more suitable for moist, weeping areas of skin, while the thicker, more greasy ointment is more suitable for dry, scaly areas of skin. Betnovate lotion spreads easily and is more suitable for hairy areas of skin, or when minimal application to a large area of skin is needed.

 

Betnovate Common Use

  • Betnovate Cream is applied externally to the affected parts of the skin and carefully rubbed.
  • The cream should be used 2-3 times a day depending on the form of the disease, level of the severity, and reaction of the body to the treatment
  • Do not apply much cream because it is not almost absorbed, and so the patient spends the part of the cream
  • After the application it is better to use the maintaining dosage and apply the drug once per day, before going to bed.
  • If necessary the occlusive dressings are used which are replaced every 24 hours (the dampening chamber causing loosening of the horny layer and faster penetration of the drug is created because of the evaporation of sweat and skin breathing)
  • In order to avoid the relapses of the disease it is necessary to use the cream for several days after the complete disappearance of the symptoms. This way it is possible to achieve the results.
