I am using 0.1% betamethasone for 4 months, I just know that I am pregnant in the first month, does the drug have any adverse effect on the fetus?
Probably OK: It's hard to prove any medicine is 100% safe in pregnancy. If it's not essential you could stop it for 1st trimester. However, little of the topical steroid will reach the fetus and many women have used it, not realizing they were pregnant. There does not seem to be any pattern of adverse effects on the fetus. ...Read more

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?

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
I have red marks on my neck (i assume a fungal infection?), what medicine do you recommend? My doctor prescribed me clotrimazole and betamethasone dipropionate and it is barely working (almost done with a 15 gram tube). Do you recommend different medicat
Without: Without being able to examine you, it's difficult to say what could be causing your rash. Fungal infections can be tricky and can take weeks to go away. That being said, if it has been weeks and you see no improvement with your current treatment (which should be effective for most skin fungal infections) you should call your doctor. They may want to take another look at it, possibly take a culture and depending on what they see, either keep you on the same treatment or change to a different medication. If your doctor is unable to figure out what it is, they may recommend a dermatologist (skin specialist) who may be able to help. ...Read more

It's well studied, effective, debate still about additional courses & timing. I give a rescue dose if ptl < 32 weeks. ...Read more

Unfortunately, it doesn't work very well on either one, for most people. ...Read more
