  • What is the Betacap Scalp Application used for?

    Betacap Scalp Solution (0.1%) is a prescription-only scalp treatment. It contains the active component betamethasone as valerate 0.1%, a potent topical corticosteroid drug.

    Specially formulated to treat scalp psoriasis (scaly, pink patches of thickened skin) and other inflammatory scalp conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis (scaly, itchy patches).

    When our skin gets irritated, the immune system becomes hyperactive, releasing substances that cause blood vessels to dilate and become leaky. This leads to red, itchy, and sometimes swollen skin.

    These signs are often seen in skin problems like eczema and psoriasis.

    And most importantly, Betacap is usually prescribed only after weaker corticosteroids or other treatments have been tried and didn't work.

    Some people may have heard that Betacap can treat hair loss and make hair grow better. But it's not made for that. Still, some users have noticed more hair growth as a side effect of Betacap scalp solution.
