Description

Elocom ointment contains mometasone a potent corticosteroid. It is used topically to relieve the redness, swelling, itching and inflammation and discomfort of various skin conditions, including psoriasis and eczema. It works by activating natural substances in the skin to reduce swelling, redness, and itching.These medicines are placed on the surface of the skin to reduce the redness and itchiness caused by some skin problems. Used to avoid flare-ups and reduce eczema-induced red, itchy and dry skin.

How To Use

Apply as directed by your doctor, usually a thin film of medication to the affected area once daily. Gently rub in. Do not cover the treated area with bandages or other dressings unless instructed to do so by your doctor. Wash and dry your hands and then squeeze out the right amount. Spread the cream or ointment in a thin layer over the area of irritated skin. Carefully smooth it into your skin in the direction that your hair grows. Use the cream or ointment on all the irritated skin, not just the worst areas. Be careful not to get the cream or ointment on broken skin or cuts. Wash your hands afterwards (unless you are treating the skin on your hands). Wait at least 10 minutes before using any other creams or ointments.

  2. Have chickenpox or shingles.

  3. Have acne or rosacea.
