Beta - Salic

Beta - Salic


Each 100g Beta-Salic Solution contains 64mg betamethasone dipropionate (equivalent to 50mg betamethasone base) and 2g salicylic acid.


Betamethasone is anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and vasoconstrictor. Salicylic acid is keratolytic.

Beta-Salic Solution is used in the treatment of inflammatory and pruritus in the scalp lesions such as psoriasis, seborrhoeic dermatitis.


As instructed by physician or otherwise as follows:

Beta-Salic Solution: A small quantity should be applied to the scalp and rubbed, twice daily (morning and evening) until improvement is noticeable. Then it may be possible to apply Beta-Salic Solution once a day or less frequently.

When Beta-Salic is used for treatment of the face or for children, it should be used for only five days. Occlusion must not be used.


Beta-Salic is generally well tolerated and side effects are rare.

These effects are increased when occlusion is used or in continuous application such as: Burning, irritation, dermatitis, dryness, pruritus, foliculitis, hypertrichosis, rash, hypopigmentation, perioral dermatitis, local atrophy of the skin, striae and superficial vascular dilation particularly on the face.


Hypersensitivity to steroids or salicylic acid, rosacea, acne, peri-anal and genital pruritus, perioral dermatitis, infection of the scalp, most viral lesions of the skin, particularly herpes simplex, vaccinia, varicella, fungal or bacterial skin infection without suitable concomitant anti-infective therapy.


Beta-Salic is for external use only and care must be taken to keep it away from the eyes.

• The systemic absorption of betamethasone and salicylic acid may be increased if extensive body surface areas are treated for prolonged periods or with excessive amounts.

• Long term continuous topical therapy should be avoided where possible, particularly in infants and children.

• Topical corticosteroids may be hazardous in psoriasis for a number of reasons including: Rebound relapses following development of tolerance, risk of generalised, pustular psoriasis and local systemic toxicity due to impaired barrier function of the skin.


It should not be used in pregnancy. Care should be taken in lactation.
