Betamethasone is a long-acting corticosteroid with immunosuppressive and antiinflammatory properties.It can be used topically to manage inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, and parenterally to manage several disease states including autoimmune disorders.Betamethasone has potent glucocorticoid activity and negligible mineralocorticoid activity.

Glucocorticoid receptor (Humans) [DrugBank]
Corticosteroids bind to the glucocorticoid receptor inhibiting pro-inflammatory signals, while promoting anti-inflammatory signals.1 Corticosteroids have a wide therapeutic window as patients may require doses that are multiples of what the body naturally produces.1 Patients who require long-term treatment with a corticosteroid should be counselled regarding the risk of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis suppression and increased susceptibility to infections.1 [DrugBank]
