Introduction

Momate Ointment is a type of medicine known as a topical steroid. It is used to treat certain skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and rash. It helps reduce symptoms like swelling, itching and redness.

You should always use Momate Ointment exactly as your doctor has told you. It is only for use on the skin but do not use the cream or ointment on your face for more than the recommended duration. Do not cover the area, which needs to be treated with a bandage or plaster unless your doctor tells you to. You should use this medicine regularly but do not apply large amounts or use it for longer than prescribed. It should be spread as a thin layer. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve after 2 weeks of treatment.

Momate Ointment has a few potential side effects but not everyone will get them. These may include thinning or a change in color of the skin, burning, stinging and itching. Serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare, but let your doctor know if you are bothered by side effects or they do not go away. Not all creams are likely to work for all skin conditions and may make some worse. Make sure you read the instructions that come with your medicine.

Let your doctor know about any medical issues you have such as thinning of skin, any skin infection, broken or ulcerated skin, diabetes and immune system problems. Also, inform the doctor about other medicines you are taking (particularly steroids). Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking this medicine.
