What Is Betacap Scalp Solution?

Betacap Scalp Solution is a topical medication designed to treat dermatitis and psoriasis affecting the scalp.

Dermatitis on the scalp (seborrheic dermatitis) can cause:

  • flakes of skin in the hair (dandruff)
  • patches of oily skin covered in skin flakes
  • patches of itchy, red, dry skin on the top of the head

Betacap Scalp solution helps to reduce these uncomfortable symptoms quickly and effectively.

While the cause of dermatitis on the scalp is not known for certain, it is believed that some yeast (fungus) found in the oily secretions of the skin may play a role in developing dermatitis on the scalp.

It is suitable for use by adults, children and infants above the age of one year.

Betacap Scalp solution can be ordered online from Prescription Doctor. Our online service makes it quick and easy to get a private prescription for Betacap Scalp Solution, without the need to go to a pharmacy.

Simply complete our online medical form to begin your order. If one of our prescribers approves your order before 3pm, our UK based pharmacy can dispatch your item the same day via a fast and discreet next-day delivery. We deliver all items in plain discreet packaging that protects your privacy.

How Does Betacap Scalp Solution Work?

Betacap Scalp Solution contains a corticosteroid called betamethasone.

Betamethasone works by reducing the inflammation, irritation, itchiness and redness caused by these types of skin conditions.

It also helps to calm your immune system whilst acting as an antiseptic. It is created to feel like an emollient to help moisturise the area, prevent infection and help make the scalp feel more comfortable.

Betacap Scalp Solution is created specifically to quickly and effectively treat the scalp area, which can often be more difficult to treat with other medicines of this kind.

How Do I Use Betacap Scalp Solution?

Betacap Scalp Solution should only be applied to areas affecting the scalp.

When applying Betacap Scalp Solution to the head, take care not to get the solution in your eyes, nose or mouth.

Apply the product to the affected area once in the morning and again in the evening until the area starts to improve. On days when you clean your hair, you can apply the product after washing your hair once the hair is completely dry.

After using Betacap Scalp Solution, allow the head to dry naturally.

Do not use a hair dryer to dry your hairy after applying Betacap Scalp solution.

When you start to see an improvement to your condition, you can use the product less frequently or as often as required to keep the skin condition under control.

Wash your hands thoroughly after using Betacap Scalp Solution.
