Betnovate Cream Reviews: What Real Users Think

Eczema is a fairly common skin condition, but for its 1.3 million or so UK sufferers the symptoms can be unsightly, uncomfortable, and often quite painful — flare-ups are typically accompanied by skin redness, itching, a rash, and often dry, flaky skin, while more severe symptoms can include blistering, weeping, or — worse still — a rather nasty skin infection.

If you’ve tried over-the-counter eczema treatments such as Aveeno (a soothing moisturiser), Adex Gel (a dual-action gel treatment) or Alphosyl (a medicated eczema shampoo) and you need something a little more potent, a prescription-only steroid treatment is often the next step. Betnovate (which comes in cream or ointment form) is one such treatment, and it has proved extremely effective at treating the unpleasant symptoms of an eczema flare-up (a course of 7 to 10 days will usually clear up symptoms).

If you’re suffering from eczema or psoriasis and you want to explore a stronger inflamed skin treatment, you can buy Betnovate Cream or Ointment via The Independent Pharmacy by simply completing a short online questionnaire.
