Elocon (mometasone): “If only I'd found out about this cream earlier! I suffer from dermatitis on my face (brought on by stress) and tried everything else first, but this was the only thing that worked. Took about 2 days for me.”

Elocon (mometasone): “Be careful with this cream. I once had eczema as a small child and got increasingly heavier creams. Elocon makes your skin beautiful to a certain extent, but after years your skin becomes thinner and thinner and before you know it your body is broken. Your entire immune system is destroyed. You get depressed, can't sleep, and your skin is dying. You're addicted, which means you have to be in TSW. You don't wish this on your worst enemy. Please don't use anything that contains steroids! This should be banned and withdrawn from the market.”

“After 6 months of trying "everything," including OTC steroids for a pernicious itchy rash on my neck and face, AI got a tube of Mometasone. The cream totally eliminated the scaly, bumpy, red, itching and burning in 36 hours (after 1 application). I used a "thin film" as recommended once a day for a week, and that has solved this agonizing problem I call it miraculous, and couldn't be more satisfied. Restores my faith in medication! Note that it says NOT to use for extended periods.”

Elocon (mometasone): “I’ve suffered from atopic dermatitis and eczema my entire life. It used to be on my feet, which was AWFUL. It moved to behind my knees and elbows. Now, I only get eruptions on my hands/wrists. I have tried so many creams, moisturizers, potions and lotions over my 40 years of life but NOTHING works as amazing as Elocon!! I found that if I moisturize my hands with Genes vitamin E Creme first (available at Sams club) and let that soak in for an hour, then apply Elocon, it’s the money right there. Within a day my flare up looks 75% better, within 2 days it’s easy to stop treatment... it’s almost entirely cleared up, you really need that 3rd day of elocon- that’s when it clears up completely and doesn’t come back for a while. Also amazed how, in spite of heavy itching, bleeding, oozing, big cracks in skin and scabs, sometimes infections on my hands, I NEVER have a scar. Elocon for the win!!”
