ELOCOM OINTMENT (MOMETASONE)

Elocom Ointment is a Topical Steroid

Elocom Ointment or generic Mometasone is a medium-potency steroid medication your doctor may prescribe to reduce the inflammation caused by eczema, psoriasis, and allergic skin rashes. By reducing the inflammatory reaction, you are less likely to scratch yourself and cause lesions or broken skin that could let bacteria in and lead to an infection. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Elocom Ointment Calms Inflammatory Skin Irritations

When applied topically as directed, Elocom Ointment is absorbed into your skin cells and inhibits the action of certain substances in your body that produce inflammatory chemicals. Prostaglandins are one of the inflammatory chemicals that rush to the injured area and cause your blood vessels to dilate which cause the redness, itching, and swelling. Inflammation is an immune response to anything that appears to be a threat to your body. Using Elocom Ointment or generic Mometasone will calm everything down and allow you some relief.

Conditions Treated by Elocom Ointment

Eczema is a skin disorder that can be triggered by direct contact with soaps, perfumes, certain metals, and even sweat. Stress, changes in temperature, or environmental allergens can also cause a flare-up that itches and becomes inflamed. By controlling the itching, you can reduce your chances of it turning into a painful rash.

Psoriasis is also a skin condition that produces swelling as well as a rapid turnover of skin cells that produce “plaques”. This autoimmune disorder causes your T cells, a type of white blood cell, to over-react. This leads to swelling and new skin cells to surface before your body has a chance to shed the old skin cells. Neither of these skin conditions is contagious and there is no cure. Treatment with Elocom Ointment can help reduce your symptoms and provide relief from the itching and inflammation.

Before You Use Elocom Ointment

Discuss other medical conditions you have with your doctor and list all current OTC and Rx drugs you are taking to be certain that Elocom Ointment will not cause unintended side effects. Ask your doctor if Elocom Ointment is safe to apply if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast-feeding.

Precautions for Elocom Ointment

You should not bandage any areas treated with Elocom Ointment unless directed to do so by your doctor. Any occlusive dressings can increase the absorption of Elocom Ointment which may be harmful for some individuals. Prolonged use of Elocom Ointment may result in a thinning of the skin area so follow your doctor’s instructions and do not apply more than necessary.
