Eczema and psoriasis treatment Mometasone Furoate Elocon Lotion

Uses
Elocon Lotion (Mometasone Furoate) is used to alleviate the symptoms of inflammatory skin disorders such as psoriasis and eczema. It works by reducing itching and inflammation. Patients have also used it directly on lesions affecting the scalp. The active ingredient in this topical lotion is a corticosteroid which is in the medium strength range. It is known to exhibit anti-inflammatory action, and this may be explained by it acting directly on the cells of the skin to reduce the amount of inflammatory substances released. Vasoconstrictive effects are also produced, meaning that the blood vessels become tighter. This will reduce pruritis (itching) and inflammation. Skin disorders which have not adequately responded to treatment with milder forms of corticosteroids are generally treated with this product.

Dosage and Administration
Elocon Lotion (Mometasone Furoate) comes as a 0.1 per cent strength variety, and this means that every gram of the lotion contains 1mg of the active ingredient. Your doctor may tell you to administer a few drops of the lotion each day to the area of skin that is affected. Gently rub the lotion until you see it disappearing. Patients will be advised to withdraw treatment when control of the symptoms occurs. Should the condition show no signs of improvement within 2 weeks, the doctor may need to re-evaluate the condition and diagnosis.

Side effects
Treatment of psoriasis, eczema or any other conditions with Elocon Lotion (Mometasone Furoate) may lead to side effects, which could include:

  • Blisters or pimples
  • Dry, itchy or irritated skin
  • Swelling of your hair follicles
  • Discolouration of the treated area
  • Skin which is thinner or softer than usual

Report all side effects you experience to the doctor in charge of treatment. Certain reactions caused by this lotion may be serious in nature, and will need medical treatment straight away. Some of these may occur due to the medicine being absorbed through the skin. Examples of this can include blurry eyesight, weight gain, weak muscles and other severe reactions which have not been listed here.

Precautions
This lotion is intended for external use on the skin only and must never be consumed orally. Also, patients should not use it on the eyes, groin or any other sensitive body parts.

Do not use this lotion with an occlusive dressing unless you have been told to do so by your doctor.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Elocon Lotion (Mometasone Furoate) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.
