What Flosterone is and what it is used for
What is Flosterone?
Flosterone contains the active substance betamethasone, which is a synthetic corticosteroid. It has anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive effects and prevents hypersensitivity reactions. Betamethasone sodium phosphate is an easily soluble compound, quickly absorbed into tissues and has a rapid effect. Betamethasone dipropionate has a long-lasting effect due to slower absorption. The combination of the two compounds allows for a quick and lasting effect. Depending on the route of administration (intra-articular, intralesional, intradermal, exceptionally intramuscular), local or systemic therapeutic effects are obtained.
