ATX code D07A C13.
Mometasone furoate is a synthetic glucocorticosteroid for topical use with anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and antiexudative effects.
Pharmacokinetic studies have shown that systemic absorption after topical application of mometasone furoate 0.1% is minimal; approximately 0.4% of the administered dose is eliminated from the body within 72 hours after application. It was almost impossible to establish the nature of the metabolites due to the small amount present in blood plasma and secretions.
Inflammatory phenomena and itching in dermatoses treated with corticosteroids, including psoriasis (except for common plaque psoriasis) and atopic dermatitis, in adults and children over 2 years of age.

Elocom® should not be applied to wounds or ulcerated skin. The drug is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to any of the components of the drug or to other glucocorticosteroids.
Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction
Features of application
In case of irritation or sensitization, treatment should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted.
In case of concomitant skin infection, an appropriate antifungal or antibacterial drug should be used. If positive dynamics cannot be achieved within a short time, Elocom® ointment should be discontinued until the infection is completely eliminated.
Systemic topical administration of various glucocorticosteroids may cause reversible suppression of hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal function with possible glucocorticosteroid insufficiency after discontinuation of treatment. Some patients may experience Cushing’s syndrome, hyperglycemia, and glucosuria.
