? diagnosis. Steroids like celestone (betamethasone) can be useful however, it's important that the diagnosis is confirmed as this drug may not be the appropriate treatment. If not resolving go back to doctor who prescribed it or see a specialist (dermatologist). May need biopsy to confirm if not already done.
After a scrape 7 days ago, & putting a plaster and betadine/iodine paint, I developed a red, blistering rash. Doc gave betamethasone but its not working?
Possible allergy. Betadine and other iodine-containing topical treatments can be very irritating to the skin, and in some cases can cause tissue damage. An allergic reaction to iodine is also possible. All can take time to calm down, even with a decent topical steroid. I often recommend a simple route by using plain vaseline on a superficial wound to protect while your body does what it does best to heal.
I want to stop mediven betamethasone cream but if I do I get very itchy & rashes which later turns dark like dead skin. I used it before for allergy?
See dermatologist. The betamethasone cream only reduces the inflammation and does nothing on the cause for your rash. Thus the rash will return within days after you stop using the cream. You need to consult a dermatologist to try to find out the cause.
Nickel dermatitis. Wore necklace under turtleneck on hot day. Rash on side and back of neck. Dr. gave me Betamethasone Still itching. What for itch?
Antihistamine. An antihistamine such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine), (diphenhydramine) Zyrtec, Claritin or Allegra may help. There is also topical Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to use on the skin.
I've been using betamethasone dipropionate ointment. Itching n soreness has gone but jock itch rash is still there but its turning orangeish now?
Please see. Please see your dermatologist to evaluate for infection.
Intertrigo. Intertrigo happens under the skin folds & is due to maceration in those areas that provides a good environment for candida yeast to live and irritates the skin. Clotrimazole has good activity against yeast and Betamethasone relieves the inflammation. Protecting the skin with a zinc oxide product such as a diaper rash ointment after putting those on will further protect skin from maceration.
My 16 yo dtr has a red, bumpy, dry rash on both her arms inside the elbows. Dr gave clotrimazole & betamethasone dipropionate. Its not help. Any ideas?
Visit your doc. It sounds like eczema in which case those topical steroids should help. If not I would go back. It could also be a fungal infection or other types of dermatitis.
Keratosis pilaris. Your daughter could have a skin condition called keratosis pilaris (kp). This is a common condition with rough patches and small red acne like bumps on the arms, thighs, or buttocks. The cause is keratin buildup and can be associated with genetic disease like atopic dermatitis which is a form of eczema. This condition usually resolves by 30. Exfoliants are the treatment of choice.
2-3 days. Usually one begins to improvement in 48-72 hours after asteroid injection.
