Buy Betacap 

Betacap is a topical treatment for dry, itchy and irritated skin on the scalp that normally occurs due to psoriasis, eczema or dermatitis. 


How Betacap works

Betacap contains the active ingredient betamethasone which is a corticosteroid. It works by reducing inflammation and calming down your immune system. 

The product also works as an antiseptic, making the scalp more comfortable. 



Always use Betacap exactly as described in the patient information leaflet or as your doctor / Chemist4U pharmacist has told you. 



Use Betacap twice daily, morning and evening. On days when you shampoo your hair, apply the product after drying the hair. 

Hold the nozzle against the part of the scalp you wish to treat. Squeeze the bottle until the area is covered with a thin layer of the product. Gently massage it into the scalp. Allow the treated scalp to dry naturally, do not use a hairdryer. Wash your hands after use. 



We cannot prescribe Betacap from our clinic for use in anyone under 18 years old. If your child is suffering from scalp issues, please contact their G.P.


Side effects

Like all medicines, Betacap may cause side effects in some people, but these won’t affect everybody. Common side effects include: 


  • Skin irritation 
  • Local skin thinning and adrenal suppression 
  • Steroid withdrawal reaction 
  • Blurred vision


If you experience any side effects, including any not included in the patient information leaflet, you can report them using the MHRA Yellow Card Scheme.


Serious side effects

Seek emergency medical attention if you notice any signs of a severe allergic reaction, symptoms of which include swelling of the face and throat, skin rash, breathing difficulties and/or loss of consciousness. 



Betacap may be unsuitable for certain people. Do not use this product if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.

Do not use Betacap to treat any other skin problems, especially infections. 

Do not use this product to treat any other scalp conditions other than the one your doctor has prescribed it for. 

If you think your scalp has become infected, contact your doctor. 

Avoid using this product continuously for long periods of time e.g. weeks or months on end.

Keep the product away from your eyes and mouth.

Betacap is highly flammable. Do not use it near open flames or other ignition sources.
