How Momate-F Cream works

Momate-F Cream is a combination of two medicines: Mometasone and Fusidic Acid, which treats skin infections. Mometasone is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Fusidic Acid is an antibiotic. It stops bacterial growth by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by the bacteria to carry out vital functions.

Expert Advice

  • Momate-F Cream helps treat inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis that are also infected by bacteria.
  • Do not use it more often or for longer than advised by your doctor.
  • It may cause minor burning, stinging, or irritation when applied. Inform your doctor if this does not go away.
  • Avoid contact with your eyes, nose or mouth. Rinse it off with water if you accidentally get the cream in these areas.
  • Do not cover the area being treated with airtight dressings such as bandages unless directed by a doctor, as this may increase the risk of side effects.
  • Consult your doctor if your skin condition has not improved after two weeks of treatment.
  • Do not use it for longer than prescribed as prolonged or repeated use can cause the skin to become over-sensitive to the medicine and may also result in the bacteria becoming resistant to the antibiotic.

Q. What are the precautions needed to be taken while using Momate-F?

Momate-F should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer than the advised periods of time.

Follow the directions given by the doctor. Apply the medicine thinly and in sufficient quantity to cover the affected areas.
