FAQs

Mometasone

Q. Is Mometasone an antifungal, an antibiotic or a steroid?

Mometasone is neither an antifungal nor an antibiotic. It is a corticosteroid which is used to reduce inflammation (redness, swelling) in various conditions. It is available as an ointment, cream and lotion for external application. It is also available as a nasal spray or powder for inhalation.

Q. Mometasone is effective for my child. Can I extend the treatment a little longer?

You should use Mometasone as advised by your doctor, especially in children. Using more than the recommended dose or even extending the duration may cause hormonal imbalance in your child. As a result, the child may develop puffiness or rounding of face and there could be delay in growth and development. Therefore, consult the doctor before trying any dose adjustments.

Q. What is Mometasone used for?

Mometasone is a steroid medicine which is used on the skin to relieve inflammatory and itchy skin diseases. It also helps in reducing redness, scaling and swelling associated with these conditions. Do not take this medicine without consulting your doctor.

Q. How to use Mometasone?

Mometasone should be gently rubbed into the affected skin twice daily for a maximum of about 2 weeks. In case, you do not find any considerable improvement within 2 weeks, consult your doctor for reevaluation.

Q. What should I do if I forget to use Mometasone?

If you forget to use Mometasone, do not worry and continue using Mometasone as soon as you remember. However, if you are not sure and have any other doubts, please consult your doctor.

Q. Can you use Mometasone on broken skin?

No, Mometasone should not be applied on broken skin. It is a steroid medicine which works by suppressing the immune system. It may cause varied side effects which can delay the healing process. Moreover, steroids are also known to cause skin atrophy which might worsen the associated condition.

Q. Does Mometasone cause local irritation or skin reactions?

Yes, Mometasone may cause local skin reactions like burning, itching, irritation, dryness and hypopigmentation in sensitive individuals, although it is rare. Therefore, it is important to inform your doctor if you have any history of allergy or reaction before you start therapy with this medicine. In some cases, the reason for the allergic reaction could be the added ingredients with the drug. In case of any reaction, stop the medication immediately and inform the doctor.

Q. What are the precautions that are needed to be taken while using Mometasone?

Mometasone should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer periods of time than you have been advised. Do not apply a bandage or dressing to the area being treated, as this will increase absorption of the preparation and increase the risk of side-effects. This medicine should be used only when advised by the doctor. It should not be given to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.
Fusidic Acid

Q. Is Fusidic Acid an antifungal or a steroid? What is it used for?

Fusidic Acid is neither an antifungal nor a steroid. It is an antibiotic that is effective against bacteria. It is used to treat bacterial infections of the skin like impetigo (a weeping, crusty and swollen patch of skin), infected cuts and grazes, and infected dermatitis (skin becomes red, slightly swollen, and painful due to infection).

Q. For how long is it required to use Fusidic Acid?

Use the Fusidic Acid for the time advised by your doctor. The treatment with Fusidic Acid usually stretches for 1-2 weeks although it can be longer in some cases.

Q. What precautions should I take while applying Fusidic Acid?

Fusidic Acid is meant to be applied only on the skin. Always wash your hands before applying the medicine. Unless you are using the cream to treat your hands, always wash your hands after using Fusidic Acid. Do not insert it into your body or swallow it. If it accidentally enters your eyes, wash your eyes thoroughly with water. If irritation persists, contact your doctor immediately.

Q. What is drug resistance? Does it mean that even Fusidic Acid may turn ineffective?

Sometimes the bacteria get modified in your body and the medicine stops working. This is called drug resistance. Extended or recurrent use of medicine may increase the risk of developing resistance to that medicine. Your body may develop resistance for Fusidic Acid too. Therefore, to prevent drug resistance, you should use Fusidic Acid in the right amount and for the duration recommended by the doctor.

Q. What should prompt me to stop using Fusidic Acid?

If you develop a severe allergic reaction after using Fusidic Acid, wash the area thoroughly and do not use the medicine again. The symptoms of an allergic reaction include a severe rash, difficulty in breathing, stinging or burning in the eye which does not go away, and swelling of the face (especially around the eyes or eyelids). You should immediately seek the medical support of your doctor or go to a nearby hospital.
