Combination drug for external use, the effect of which is due to its constituent components.
The drug has anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, antipruritic, keratolytic action.
Betamethasone inhibits the release of inflammatory mediators, prevents the accumulation of neutrophils, reduces inflammatory exudates and production of cytokines, reduces the migration of macrophages, leading to a reduction in infiltration and granulation.
The presence of salicylic acid softens the skin, eliminates horny layers and promotes deeper penetration of betamethasone.

Treatment of subacute and chronic dermatoses accompanied by hyperkeratosis and desquamation:

When using occlusive dressings: skin maceration, striae, skin atrophy, secondary infection, sweating.
With prolonged use: skin atrophy, local hirsutism, telangiectasia, purpura, hypopigmentation, hypertrichosis.
When applied to large areas : systemic manifestations of side effects of SCS (growth retardation, Itenko-Cushing syndrome, increased intracranial pressure after treatment, hyperglycemia, glucosuria, hypokalemia, increased blood pressure) or salicylates (pallor, fatigue, drowsiness, hyperventilation against tachypnea , nausea, vomiting, hearing loss, confusion).
