Use Elocon exactly as directed on the label, or as it has been prescribed by your doctor. Do not use this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Read all medication guides or instruction sheets.

Do not take by mouth. Topical medicine is for use only on the skin.

Wash your hands before and after using Elocon, unless you are using the medicine on your hands.

Apply a small amount to the affected area and rub it gently into the skin. Do not apply Elocon over a large area of skin.

Do not cover the treated skin area unless your doctor tells you to. Covering treated areas can increase the amount of medicine absorbed through your skin and may cause harmful effects.

Call your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after 2 weeks of treatment, or if they get worse.

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

You should not use Elocon if you are allergic to mometasone.
