What is Beta Scalp Application?
Beta Scalp Application containing the active ingredient betamethasone valerate is considered a topical corticosteroid type of medication. It works by acting inside the skin cells to decrease the release of inflammatory substances to reduce redness, itching and swelling of the skin. The solution can be applied to the scalp to treat inflammatory skin disorders such as psoriasis and dermatitis.

How is Beta Scalp Application used?
Beta Scalp Application is usually applied twice per day, once in the morning and once at night unless otherwise directed by a doctor. The dose may be reduced once the symptoms have improved. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patient's condition and their response to the therapy.

You may want to wash or shampoo your hair and dry your scalp before applying the solution. To apply the medication, unscrew the bottle cap and place the nozzle on the area of the scalp that needs treating. Gently squeeze the bottle to cover the affected area with the solution and rub the liquid into the scalp or just allow it to dry normally. Make sure to wash your hands after applying the medication.
