Elocon Cream And Ointment
The uses of elocon (mometasone furoate) include: treats rashes, skin irritation, and other types of skin problems.
How does it work?
Elocon cream and ointment both contain the active ingredient mometasone furoate, which is a type of medicine known as a topical corticosteroid.
Corticosteroids are medicines used for reducing inflammation. Inflammation of the skin happens as a result of allergy or irritation of the skin, and is caused by the release of various substances that are important in the immune system. These substances cause blood vessels to widen and result in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful, such as is seen in dermatitis or eczema.
