Brief Answer:
It may be meant for maturity of baby lungs

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

Betnesol is usually prescribed for premature babies for faster maturity of lungs. Other reasons for prescription may be allergy, asthma, colitis, lupus disorders, severe itching etc. This is a steroidal injection and is helpful in reducing inflammation in the above cases.

Now I don't know why it has been prescribed in your wife's case. If she does not have any of the above, then there is no need of it. Kindly go back to your gynecologist and check in detail with her. It is your right to know details.

In baby it may cause some temporary imbalance of cortisol secretion in babies. Cortisol is an important endogenous hormone.

Hope it helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am 29 year old I had typhoid when I was about 15 years and doctor prescribed me some tablets .I had severe fever just one day night and on the same day I was having severe itching on the glans penis and by the next day it became sores.The next day itself I again consulted the doctor and he changed the medicines.He said that might be because of allergy to sulphar or something.That sores became worst and took around two weeks to heal leaving many marks and uneven skin.What type of allergy was it?or was it a symptom of something else like any STD?Is there any way to remove that marks on the glans penis?Please help.becouse of shyness I never discussed these with a doctor
