Drug Description


Mometasone is a medication prescribed for the treatment of various skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, allergies, and rashes. Its therapeutic effects are attributed to the reduction of swelling (inflammation), itching, and redness. Mometasone is classified as a medium-strength corticosteroid. This is available in different formulations such as cream, ointment, and lotion (solution). The specific type of product will be determined by your doctor based on the nature of the skin condition and the area of the body being treated. 

Uses and Dosage 

This medication is intended for application only on specific areas of the skin. It should not be used on the face, groin, underarms, or for diaper rash unless specifically instructed by your doctor. 

Before using the medication, ensure that you wash and dry your hands. Clean and dry the affected area. Apply the medication as directed by your doctor, typically applying a thin layer of the medication to the affected area once daily. Gently massage it into the skin. Unless instructed otherwise by your doctor, avoid covering the treated area with bandages or dressings. 

After applying the medication, do not wash or rinse it off immediately. However, you should wash your hands with soap and water after each use, unless you are using the medication to treat the hands. Avoid contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth. In case accidental contact occurs, thoroughly rinse the affected area with water and seek medical attention if irritation persists. 

For optimal results, use this medication regularly at the same time each day. Adhering to a consistent schedule can help you remember. Kindly do not to apply excessive amounts of the medication, use it more frequently, or extend the duration of use beyond the prescribed period. Doing so will not accelerate the improvement of your condition, and it may increase the risk of side effects.

Corticosteroids have the potential to worsen skin infections and make them more challenging to treat. If you have a skin infection, you need to inform your doctor so that appropriate treatment can be provided.

In rare cases, long-term or extensive use of corticosteroid medications can diminish your body’s ability to respond to physical stress.
