Mometasone

What Is Mometasone?

Mometasone is a type of medication that falls under the corticosteroids category. As such, it is widely used to treat inflammation and redness in various areas of the body. While available in different forms, prescription Mometasone is typically provided as a topical cream.

This medication can be applied daily and is shown to elicit positive results for individuals with a diverse range of inflammatory skin conditions.

Mometasone is sold under various brand names such as Elocon, Asmanex, and Nasonex.

How Does Mometasone Work?

This drug works by reducing inflammation as a corticosteroid. Steroid medication like this will stop the body from having an aggressive response to outside factors. For instance, if your skin becomes irritated due to a particular condition or allergic reaction, it will become red and inflamed. This is a natural defense response, but it can lead to swelling, itchiness, and further irritation.

The body reacts like this because chemicals are released when irritation occurs, which triggers a response from the immune system. When applied to the affected area, Mometasone will prevent these chemicals from being released, which calms down the immune system. It doesn’t produce a strong inflammatory response, allowing the skin to heal and become less irritated.

What Is Mometasone Used For?

Mometasone is a topical skin treatment that’s used to treat a wide range of skin conditions and symptoms. Individuals suffering from any of the following will likely be prescribed this medication:

  • Eczema (including atopic and seborrheic dermatitis)
  • Psoriasis
  • Allergic reactions
  • Bug bites

It is applied directly to the affected area of the skin and can help tackle these symptoms:

  • Inflammation/redness
  • Swelling
  • Itchiness
  • Irritated skin

What Are the Side Effects of Mometasone?

Topical Mometasone will usually present fewer side effects than other forms of this drug. However, you may still encounter some symptoms associated with using this medication daily.

Most of the side effects are mild and include:

  • Skin irritation
  • A burning sensation on the skin
  • Mild itchiness
  • A slight increase in redness

These side effects are common when you begin applying Mometasone for the first time and will subside with time. You’re also likely to see these side effects if you do not apply the topical cream correctly, which is why it is critical to follow all instructions provided by your doctor.

In extreme circumstances, you could experience severe side effects of Mometasone. Be aware that these are rare, though you should consult a doctor the moment you notice any of the following:

  • Excessive swelling
  • Blurred vision
  • Blisters
  • Severe burning
  • Extreme itching
  • Skin thinning
  • Easy bruising

It’s not normal to see these severe side effects and you should stop taking Mometasone right away. Talk to your doctor and they will explain what to do, helping you get relief from any bad symptoms.

Similarly, if you continue to experience the mild side effects and they get progressively worse, speak to your doctor and explain the situation. They’ll either prescribe a new dose of Mometasone or find a suitable alternative.

How to Take Mometasone?

Mometasone in prescription form is given as a topical cream or ointment. Therefore, it should only be applied to the skin. Do not ingest Mometasone or apply it inside your mouth.

Your doctor will explain how often to use this topical cream when you obtain a prescription. Dosages can vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of your skin condition. Follow the doctor’s orders and read the informational sheet that comes with the medication. This will explain how much of the cream to use with each dose, as well as what you should avoid doing before or after applying.

When using Mometasone, you should only apply it to the affected skin. Avoid getting it on healthy skin as it is likely to cause mild reactions that can lead to side effects. You should ensure that a thin layer is applied evenly over the inflamed area of skin, and then leave it.

Avoid covering your skin with clothes until the cream has disappeared into your skin. Do not bandage the area or apply other treatments unless your doctor tells you to.

Mometasone is a moderator corticosteroid and you should see improvements within 2 weeks of regular use. Keep using it as instructed by your doctor, even if your skin becomes less inflamed. If no improvements are seen after 2 weeks – or your skin gets worse – talk to your doctor and they will explain the next steps. You may need to apply more each day or stop using Mometasone and seek out different treatments instead.
