ABSTRACT: Betamethasone dipropionate 0.05 percent ointment and betamethasone valerate 0.1 percent ointment were compared in a multicentric randomised double-blind, comparative clinical study involving 281 patients with psoriasis and other steroid responsive dermatoses. Betamethasone dipropionate ointment produced significantly faster onset of action as well as a significantly greater response. Neither ointment produced any adverse effects.
