Mometasone furoate is a generic topical ointment that belongs to a group of medicines called topical corticosteroids (or steroids). Mometasone furoate is classified as a ‘potent corticosteroid’ and is prescribed when weaker corticosteroids don’t relieve symptoms like skin inflammation and itching associated with skin conditions.

Mometasone furoate is a corticosteroid prescribed to relieve symptoms like skin inflammation and itching associated with severe forms of skin conditions like atopic eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis. Mometasone ointment is generally prescribed in cases where weaker corticosteroids don’t work to relieve symptoms.

Mometasone ointment is a corticosteroid that helps alleviate symptoms like skin inflammation and itching associated with severe forms of skin conditions like atopic eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.

Mometasone gets absorbed into the skin cells and stops the secretion of the substances that cause blood cells to widen, thereby causing skin inflammation in that area.
By doing this, Mometasone reduces swelling, redness and itchiness in that area.

Mometasone furoate cream is best suited for moist areas of the body, while the ointment is more greasy and best suited for dry, scaly areas of the skin.
