Diprolene AF Cream or the generic alternative, Betamethasone Dipropionate Augmented, is a topical corticosteroid medication designed to treat the symptoms of skin conditions including psoriasis, eczema and allergic reactions. Diprolene AF Cream treats the redness, inflammation, swelling and itchiness of these skin conditions by reducing the production, discharge and action of certain chemicals and cells in the body that trigger these symptoms.
The skin condition known as eczema, or atopic dermatitis, causes red, itchy, cracked dry skin, but these symptoms can be effectively treated with Diprolene AF Cream. Eczema is often seen in childhood, but adults can develop this skin condition as well. The symptoms of eczema can affect any area of the body, but tend to show up more often on the ankles, wrists, feet, hands, arms, neck, face, upper chest, and behind the knees.
There are very few side effects associated with the use of Diprolene AF Cream. You may experience some mild skin itching, burning, peeling or redness, stretch marks, blistering, or thinning of your skin. These side effects should subside over time without medical treatment. Seek the advice of your doctor if after applying Diprolene AF Cream you experience more serious or persistent side effects.
The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.
