12 years ago, at a time of great stress in my life I had terrible rash in feet/lower legs which 4 (!) dermatologists looked at, prescribed creams for, each made it worse than before. In desperation I went to NYU dermatology medical center which first told me to throw all creams & lotions prescribed and then conducted contact/other allergy tests which were all negative. They then prescribed an ointment formulated & dispensed exclusively at the hospital pharmacy, with many refills which immediately started working, i.e., it was soothing & it didn't make it worse. I refilled this many times & eventually it all went away & never came back. I kept my last jar in case it ever came back to be able to show someone... the label says: "LCD5%/SA5%/BETAMETDIP.OIN 120GM". The concoction was jelly-like & dark. I'm posting now because on a phone conversation with my 36 yr. old son he described the same situation exactly, feet/leg rash, many creams prescribed, none work, now on heavy antibiotics because of staph infection, etc. He is also currently under great stress at work. HELP!! what was my prescription & how can he get it? He lives in Cambridge Mass. I live in NYC. THANK YOU!!

Betamethasone is a steroid that is used to treat various conditions, such as allergic reactions, and immune disorders. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, skin redness, and irritation.

Judy, how is he doing, now? What antibiotics was he prescribed?
