Frequently Asked Questions 

How does Betnovate N Cream work? 

This cream combines corticosteroids and antibiotics. It works as an anti-inflammatory agent that hampers the latter phase of the hypersensitivity response. It decreases the density of mast cells, lowers chemotaxis and eosinophils activation, stops cytokine production, and impedes arachidonic acid metabolism.

Can I use Betnovate N Cream for pimple marks? 

Do not use this cream for acne marks. This cream contains steroids and antibiotics that can cause skin thinning. It should also not be used for a long period of time, especially in the facial area.

How long does it take Betnovate N Cream to work? 

This depends on how severe your skin condition is. Normally, it takes a few days before you see the improvements in your symptoms. If your condition does not improve after your 7-day treatment, please notify your doctor.
