Additional information

Pack Size

30g, 2x30g

Uses / Instructions

  • You usually apply the cream 2 or 3 times a day. This may be reduced as your skin begins to get better.
  • If your skin problem does not improve after 7 days talk to your doctor.
  • This cream is for use on your skin only.
  • Do not use on large areas of the body for a long time (such as every day for many weeks or months) – unless your doctor tells you to.

Warnings

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using Betamethasone/Neomycin Ointment if:

  • you are applying the cream under an airtight dressing, including a child’s nappy. These dressings make it easier for the active ingredient to pass through the skin. It is possible to accidentally end up using too much cream
  • You have psoriasis, your doctor will want to see you more often
  • You have kidney problems; your doctor may decide to change the amount or number of times you apply the cream.

 

  • Do not smoke or go near naked flames – risk of severe burns. Fabric (clothing, bedding, dressings etc) that has been in contact with this product burns more easily and is a serious fire hazard.
  • Washing clothing and bedding may reduce product build-up but not totally remove it.
  • If you are not sure if any of the above apply to you, talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using this medicine.

Side Effects

STOP using this medicine and tell your doctor as soon as possible if:

  • you find that your skin problem gets worse or becomes swollen during treatment. You may be allergic to the ointment or need other treatment.

 

Other side effects you may notice when using Betamethasone/Neomycin Cream include:

  • a feeling of burning, irritation or itching where the ointment is applied
  • if you have psoriasis you may get raised bumps with pus under the skin. This can happen during or after the treatment and is known as pustular psoriasis.
