Elocon Ointment

A healthcare provider may prescribe Elocon® (mometasone furoate) ointment to help relieve itching and inflammation caused by eczema, psoriasis, or various other skin conditions. This medicine is approved for use in adults and children as young as two years old. It is applied in a thin layer on the affected areas of the skin once daily.
 
As a type of steroid, Elocon ointment works by reducing inflammation and suppressing an overactive immune system. Although most people tolerate this medication well, it is not suitable for everyone. Make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any allergies you may have and if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Also, to avoid potential drug interactions, make sure your healthcare provider knows about all other medications, vitamins, and supplements you are taking.
