Elocon Side Effects

Because Elocon is an older medication, only vague information is available about its side effects and how often they occur. In general, side effects may include things like skin reactions, such as burning, itching, or tingling. While these reactions are usually mild, contact your healthcare provider immediately if you develop more serious side effects, such as fluid retention, hallucinations, or difficulty breathing.

An Introduction to Elocon Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Elocon® (mometasone furoate) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Elocon. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)

Reported Side Effects of Elocon

For many medications (particularly newly approved medications), the prescribing information carefully explains the exact percentage of side effects that were seen in clinical trials. However, the prescribing information for almost all older medications, including Elocon, includes only vague information on potential side effects. Therefore, it can be difficult to know exactly how often the side effects occur.
Based on this limited information, the most common side effects of Elocon may include:
  • Burning
  • Itching
  • Thinning and weakening of the skin
  • Tingling or stinging
  • Boils
  • Acne.
In general, side effects are more likely to occur if a dressing, such as a bandage, is used to cover the medication. Do not use a dressing unless your healthcare provider specifically recommends that you do so.
