What is Elocon Cream?

Elocon cream is a steroid that treats certain skin conditions, such as dermatitis, psoriasis, rash, and eczema.

Elocon contains Mometasone, which belongs to a class of drugs known as Topical Corticosteroids. It is available under the brand name Asmanex.

Mometasone quickly relieves symptoms such as redness, swelling, and itching.

In treating psoriasis, Elocon cream decreases scaly and itchy patches that might develop on elbows, scalp, knees, and other body parts.

When treating eczema and dermatitis, Mometasone reduces rash, itchiness, redness, or pain caused by the skin's reaction to an irritant.

What are the uses of Elocon cream?

How does Elocon cream work?

Mometasone decreases skin inflammation by obstructing the production of a chemical messenger that causes red, swollen, and itchy skin.

This occurs due to an allergic reaction or irritation in your skin. Thus, Elocon provides quick relief from the symptoms of scalp psoriasis, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and seborrheic dermatitis.

If your condition does not improve after two weeks of treatment, consult your doctor once. Avoid applying this medication around your eyes.
