Which works better:Betaderm or Betamethasone?
They are lotions used to treat scalp, fingernail problems and even atheletes' foot. I'm trying both and find little difference. And please don't be rude & say "try Wikipedia"; thank you. I'd like firsthand opinion.
Asked by Jackelyn Wilker 6 months ago.
I have Psoriasis so have been seeing a Psoriasis Nurse for 8 weeks. Betaderm and Betamethasanone are both steroid creams. I do not know what the restriction are where you reside, but trying to get any high strength steroid cream without prescription is impossible here. Most you can get is 1%, whereas on prescription that can increase to 5 or 10%. That is the good news. The bad news, steroid rebound! Yes just because it is a cream, you will still have to wean your skin onto it and then wean your skin off it. I am weaning my Psoriasis off the steroid cream and am having the flare as expected, but hope within the next four weks to be 'better' than before I started the treatment. Much depends on what the 'skin' problem is and then that decides the treatment. However while you think it is easy as 'rub the cream on' after 33 years of Psoriasis, with the help of the Nurse, I am at last so much better than in the past 33 years of trying to do it myself. It is a new system of special soaps, daily creaming and then steriod cream on top. At times it is a pain in the butt as it takes 2 hours a day, but now that I have seen the results, the hard work is paying off. Best of Luck Answered by Dell Flory 6 months ago.

Betaderm worked for my husband, he had a rash between his toes and it cleared it up within a few days. Also what is very good and I would suggest that you try this one if the Betaderm doesn't work for you is, LAMASIL CREAM, you can get it here in New Zealand from the chemist it really works better than Betaderm, give it a try if you can get it. Let me know how you get on. Annie Answered by Gabriele Chowen 6 months ago.

I've had severe eczema since I was born (going on 23 years) and it hasn't cleared up at all. Its starting to get worse since its summer and harder becuase I feel that I can't wear shorts and tank tops out, I'm very self conscious, on top of that my skin is so thin (from all the cortisone creams/oints) that I have stretch marks on my arms, lower abdomen, and thighs but I'm not THAT heavy . I've tried a million and one things to no avail, I was just wondering if anyone had any hidden secrets or tips to help me out. I've tried: -a dermatologist -UV treatment -many creams (hydrocortisone, elocom, fucidin, a new mixture a pharmacist recommended: betaderm, menthol and lidocaine (which is the best so far, too bad I only started about a year ago), protopic and more -homeopath/naturopath -acupuncture -doak oil baths Any suggestions!?

Hello there. A year ago I wouldn't even dare go out of the house my face was so horrible with the thick crust of dried up ooze. Then I discovered Champori anti-eczema herbal cream and spray and - thank God! - it worked like magic: my skin got back to normal in just 2.5 weeks and has stayed normal for the last 15 months!! I recommend to all people with eczema to try it for themselves. It's a homemade remedy and It works better than prescribed medications. Best, Bernadette Answered by Marilou Bonham 6 months ago.
I concur with "Nurse Susan". . . and add these suggestions, as a fellow eczema sufferer, some 22+ years now: 1. Creams don't always totally absorb into an eczema area. In fact I sometimes find they clog pores and make my eczema episode worse. (I use Eucerin products too, as often as possible). 2. Instead of soap, I shower using Origins brand (it's a natural ingredients skin care company - often having their own stores in malls across America) "Modern Friction" Facial Scrub. . . a little goes a VERY long way. Yes, I said 'facial scrub.' The body scrub is too harsh for my sensitive skin. It is expensive, at about $38, but one jar lasts me about 4 months of 3 x's/wk. showers. 3. After I shower, I rub-in 'food grade' pure almond oil, or pure jojoba oil (which seems to absorb quicker than the almond oil) all over my body - especially eczema areas. 4. I keep a prescription cortizone cream on-hand, and use very sparingly light 'dots' of it rubbed onto the areas that may be near peeling or bleeding stage. 5. This regime has nearly cleared my eczema one hundred percent on my legs. ( I also quit shaving my legs - as that dries them even more - and I always keep the sun off my legs: long skirts and pants only; no shorts - sun exposure seems to make my eczema worse too. 6. Diligence is the key. Pay attention. Treat. Treat. Treat. Moisturize. Keep hydrated. 7. My fingers are crossed for your successful healing :-) Answered by Agustin Warnell 6 months ago.

For a while, I've had an itchy vulva for almost 9 months, . I've been swabbed and it came up negative. I am also not sexually active, I'm 16. However, today, I had really bad lower-right abdomen pain (perhaps ovary) and I thought "Oh, I'll get my period".. but somehow I don't think I will.. because I DONT KNOW WHATS CAUSING MY ITCHINESS. Doctor can't find anything wrong. I think I might have lichen sclerosus(sp?) because my vagina looks white, not my vulva, but my actual vagina looks white.. any help??????? Answered by Johnnie Bournes 6 months ago.
I looked up lichen sclerosis and I think you may be right, especially since you've had it for 9 months and it sounds like you've been tested for the usual stuff like yeast. I'd go back to the doc with printed info on lichen sclerosis and talk more about it and see if you can be tested specifically for that. You don't want it to lead to other complications.

Mansour, I have Dermatits I have it in strikes, I could have it for a week, and it could dissappear for four and come back, I was told to use Elocon, prescribed by the doctor, im sure thats what your using, you just didnt spell it well. Eczema and Dermatits are closely linked, and actually when I first used the cream, the skin on my hands started to come loose and my hands looked terrible, it look 2 months to clear using E45 Cream and Moisturiser. If I were you i'd contact NHS 24, ask for a Profesional Dermatologist and you should get the medical care you need, if not and they give you treatment and it effects you negatively, I think you can sue them, im not good with Law and Justice, but I think thats about right. Dont apply to much Elocon as it can cause rash or kill off skin. Hope you find hope mate. Answered by Cristina Gossack 6 months ago.

For me natural treatment worked better than prescription medications. . I cleared my eczema with serenaskin herbal remedies in less than 2 weeks. They do not have side effects like steroid creams. Itching subsided after first application of ointment and spray, I felt a relief right away, and I also took eczema extract to prevent future flare ups. It has been several months ago and my skin is still clear. Answered by Rina Castera 6 months ago.
Professors Predicted I Would Never Cure My Eczema. But Contrarily to their Prediction, I Cured Eczema Easily, Permanently & In Just 3 Days! I'll Show You How...” Blotchy red skin Scaly patches with oozing Incredible itching that keeps coming back Skin that would heal and then break out again Not only that, but after days of trying these simple changes, my son told me: .He felt like he had more energy to run and play at school. .He was doing better in class without being distracted by annoying itching. .He was calmer, more carefree and funny - just like a child should be! .He made friends more easily and felt happier overall because people weren't staring because of his "disease". I noticed that trying these changes myself added some more benefits that, at my age, I thought I'd never experience again: . Greater vitality and energy throughout the day (no more caffeine crashes!) . Softer, smoother skin - and an end to that dreaded winter itch! . Better digestion and less of a feeling of "bloating" and fatigue. PLEASE COPY AND PASTE IN BROWSER Answered by Leoma Mielsch 6 months ago.
The best thing i've found for all skin conditions including scars, acne, eczema, psoriasis etc is UV light treatment which you can get via your doctor. Or even a short sunbed once a fortnight does wonders. Answered by Jerry Beckes 6 months ago.
Hi There, My son had the same problem as you, he suffered for over 11 years and I went onto the internet and found a product called Aalgo. No word of a lie, it completely took his eczema away within a few weeks. He was so happy, we didn't know if this product would actually work but it did. All we did was instead of using normal bubble bath we used this treatment instead. Maybe you should try and see if it works for you. Best of luck Answered by Bruce Blok 6 months ago.
I don't know of any herb capsules to take to heal the eczema. However, we healed our son's eczema in a short amount of time, using Salcura's wonderful eczema spray. It's not at all greasy, nor sticky and it's all natural. Our son's skin is healed. However, we still have to keep him away from his eczema triggers to keep it at bay. For example, if he reacts to something he's eaten, then we just give a pump of the spray and it's gone shortly thereafter. there may be other products out there, but this is the one we use. I hope this information is helpful to you. Answered by Cassidy Moltrie 6 months ago.
