What is Elocon?

Elocon is a skin rash and itch treatment medication, it is a medium potency synthetic corticosteroid with anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, and vasoconstrictive properties. It is used topically to alleviate the pruritic and inflammatory manifestations of some dermatoses that respond to corticosteroids. Intranasally, it is used to relieve the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. Elocon is available as a cream and as an ointment.

How does it work?

Elocon contains the main active ingredient, Mometasone, like other corticosteroids, has anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, and vasoconstrictive properties. In allergies, corticosteroids reduce the allergic responses of various cell types (mast cells and eosinophils) involved in allergic responses. At the molecular level, circulating corticosteroids in the blood easily cross cell membranes and bind with high affinity to specific cytoplasmic receptors. The end result is transcription and protein synthesis.

Mometasone inhibits the action of the cytochrome P450 2C8 enzyme that participates in monooxygenase activity.

Inflammation is reduced by decreasing the release of acidic hydrolases from leukocytes, preventing macrophage accumulation at sites of inflammation, interference with leukocyte adhesion to the capillary wall, reduced permeability of the capillary membrane, and consequent edema, reduction of complement components, inhibition of histamine and kinin release, and interference with the formation of scar tissue.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Elocon contains mometasone furoate, which belongs to a class of medications called corticosteroids.
