Mometasone

Mometasone

Mometasone is a corticosteroid drug that is used to treat diseases caused by inflammation or allergies (allergies). Mometasone is available in the form of ointment and cream Tdhan topical (such as cream Aleka – Elica) for the treatment of different types of skin infections, such as chronic atopic ( Atopic dermatitis ), dermatitis letter rogatory ( Contact Send an dermatitis ), alopecia areata (Alopecia Areata), lupus skin (Lupus) Eczema, Keloid, Lichen, Pemphigus, Pityriasis, Pruritus and others. It also uses a spray Mometasone inhalation through the nose for the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis ( Allergic Rhinitis(As in Hay fever). Or for treatment of allergies caused by pet dander or by house dust mites. This preparation is used for treatment in adults and children over the age of three.

Mometasone spray is also given to prevent seasonal allergies in adults and children over the age of 12, 2 to 4 weeks before the inoculation period begins (the pollination period).

Overuse of Mometasone (like other corticosteroid medicines) leads to permanent skin thinning. Children have the greatest risk of side effects when applying the cream to the face or on large skin surfaces.

When the nasal spray is used for several months, it may cause holes in the nasal membrane and require periodic medical supervision.

In rare cases, overuse of Mometasone may lead to systemic absorption of the drug and unwanted side effects. This is why a doctor should be consulted in cases of frequent or prolonged use of Mometasone .
