What Diprosone Lotion is and what it is used for

Diprosone cream contains the active ingredient betamethasone dipropionate. Betamethasone dipropionate belongs to a group of medicines called topical corticosteroids which are used on the surface of the skin to reduce the redness and itchiness caused by certain skin problems. In adults and children, Diprosone cream is used to treat skin problems, including eczema, and all types of dermatitis and psoriasis of the scalp, hands and feet. Eczema is a common skin disease, which causes the skin to become red and itchy. Dermatitis is inflammation of the skin. Psoriasis is a skin disease in which itchy, scaly, pink patches develop on the elbows, knees, scalp and other parts of the body.

How to take Diprosone Lotion

Always use this medicine exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure. Recommended dose Usually for adults and children, a thin layer of Diprosone cream should be rubbed into the affected area of skin twice a day. You should always follow these instructions when using Diprosone cream:
•Do not use the cream on your face for more than 5 days.
•Do not use a large amount of cream on large areas of the body, open wounds or areas of the body where joints bend for a long time (for example every day for many weeks or months).
•Avoid getting the cream in your eyes. Use in children Use as stated above. Do not use Diprosone cream on any part of your child's body for more than 5 days. Do not put the cream under your child’s nappy, as this makes it easier for the active ingredient of the medicine to pass through the skin and possibly cause some unwanted effects. If you use more Diprosone cream than you should 3 If you (or somebody else) accidentally swallows the cream, it should not cause any problems. However, if you are worried, you should see your doctor. If you use the cream more often than you should, or on large areas of your body, it can affect some of your hormones. In children this may affect their growth and development. If you have not used the cream as you were told to do and have used it too often and/or for a long time, you should tell your doctor or pharmacist. If you forget to use Diprosone cream If you forget to use your cream at the right time, use it as soon as you remember, then carry on as before. If you stop using Diprosone cream If you have been using the cream for a long time and your skin problem seems to have got better, you should not suddenly stop using the cream. If you do, you may find that your skin becomes red and you may notice stinging or burning. To avoid this, you should speak to your doctor who will gradually reduce how often you need to use the cream until you stop treatment altogether. If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Possible side effects

This can happen more easily in infants and children. If you are worried by these or any other side effects, you should tell your doctor or pharmacist.
