Beclometasone Dipropionate Medication
Betamethasone dipropionate Augmented 0.05% cream I am taking a drug test for a government job which I cannot test for steroids how long will this last?
Don't worry: The topical steroid cream that you are using is a "catabolic" steroid, legal and not part of a job application drug screen. The drug screen would look for "anabolic" steroids which are what body builders use to get very large muscles. The drug screen will not come back positive for steroid use if you are using "catabolic" steroids. ...Read more
This is a product taken on its own or with testosterone replacement to improve your well-being and enjoyment of life.
That said, I personally don't see any reason to take methandriol in addition to testosterone.
If your testosterone levels are normal I don't see much need for adding another drug. ...Read more
Risky: Don't just assume it's safe. Anabolic steroid related to dihydro-testosterone; it has no medical use so data on safety and side-effects are speculative. It's supposedly effective for growth but has the risks of androgenic steroid use: suppress/ eliminate sperm production, longterm feminizing effects like breast growth unless taken with an aromatase inhibitor drug. Balance the pros and cons... ...Read more
Unknown...: Safety data for nasal steroids in most studies were short-term (up to 5.5 years)--with no major adverse effects. The package insert for this medication only states that patients using it longer than several months need periodic exam for changes in nasal mucosa. It also states that a majority of the drug is swallowed during administration but after 1 year, no effect on adrenal function was present. ...Read more

More info needed: Hi. Is your CAH treated with low-dose dexamethasone (the standard)? I must assume so. You can use any nasal steroid (beclomethasone or prednisolone) for allergic rhinitis; not a lot is absorbed systemically, however, and that would NOT be a treatment for your CAH. I'm doing a lot of guessing there, however. If your CAH is well controlled with low-dose dex, then either nasal glucocorticoid is fine. ...Read more

Please get some scientific treatment for your acne and remember it is not a lifestyle or hygiene relate disease. ...Read more
Terrible choice: It will suppress the inflammation just enough to give the bacteria a growth edge for the long run, and cause some overgrowth of the sebaceous glands that keep the disease going. Get some topical benzoyl peroxide, use it aggressively and if you're not clear in two weeks, get with a competent physician. ...Read more
Some parts of my body skin is dried and seldom itchy. So I have dark patches. It aggravates when I sweat. I apply diprosone (betamethasone dipropionate) on them from time to time.?
Try hydrocortisone: This sounds like you have what is called "seborrheic dermatitis". What a big word for something so common! It is in the eczema family. Try rubbing baby oil into the area while the skin is soaking wet after showers then towel dry. There is no cure for this, it will almost always come back. Don't get discouraged, just keep the diprosonebbb handy. ...Read more
