Mometasone is used to reduce redness and itchiness caused by certain skin problems called psoriasis or dermatitis.
When not to Use
Do not use Mometasone topical if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to mometasone furoate, any of the other ingredients of Mometasone , or to similar medicines.
Hyperglycaemia and glucosuria can occur in some patients after topical application due to systemic absorption.
If irritation or sensitisation develop with the use of Mometasone Furoate treatment should be withdrawn and appropriate therapy instituted.
Should an infection develop, use of an appropriate antifungal or antibacterial agent should be instituted. If a favourable response does not occur promptly, the corticosteroid should be discontinued until the infection is adequately controlled.
Topical steroids may be hazardous in psoriasis for a number of reasons including rebound relapses following development of tolerance, risk of centralised pustular psoriasis and development of local or systemic toxicity due to impaired barrier function of the skin. If used in psoriasis careful patient supervision is important.
Always consult your physician before using any medicine.
