How Does Betnovate Ointment Work?

When the body gets exposed to an allergen or irritation, it reacts by producing chemicals. The chemical messengers (prostaglandins) widen blood vessels and cause skin inflammation, which results in sore skin and eczema breakouts.  Betnovate has anti-inflammatory properties. It works by reducing the actions of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation of the skin. It is a safe and effective treatment that reduces the scaly, itchy patches that may develop on the elbows, knees, scalp, and other body parts
