Chemical Name: Mometasone Furoate
This medication is a corticosteroid used to treat swelling, inflammation, and itching of skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, rashes, insect bites, poison ivy, allergies and other irritations. Corticosteroids for the skin are available in different strengths and forms (e.g., creams, ointments, lotions and gels). The type of medication used depends on the location of your condition and the type of skin problem being treated.
Creams are the most frequently used form. Lotions and gels may be better suited to hairy areas. Ointments may be better suited for dry areas and when a stronger effect or skin protection is desired.
Elocon Side Effects:
This medication may cause burning, stinging, itching, or redness when first applied to the skin. This should disappear in a few days as your body adjusts to the medication. Acne and excess hair growth may also occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, inform your doctor.
Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.
Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: skin discoloration, skin thinning or stretch marks.
Clean and dry the affected area before applying the medication. To apply, gently rub a small amount of the medication into the affected area and surrounding skin in a thin layer unless otherwise directed by your physician. How often the medication is applied and for how long depends on your condition and response to treatment.
Covering the area being treated may increase the absorption of the medication through the skin. This may improve how well the drug works, but it may also increase the risk of side effects. Do not cover the area with plastic or waterproof bandages unless directed to do so by your doctor.
Do not use plastic pants or tight-fitting diapers on children being treated with this medication in the diaper area unless directed to do so by your doctor.
This medication is for use on the skin only. Avoid using this medication around the eyes unless directed to do so by your doctor. If this medication gets into your eyes, flush with large amounts of water. Wash your hands after applying medication unless you are using this medication to treat the hands.
Certain preparations must be shaken well before use (e.g., certain lotions). Check the label closely and be sure to follow all directions.
Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.
