MOMATE S OINTMENT 10GM
GLENMARK PHARMACEUTICAL LTD
MOMATE S OINTMENT 10GM belongs to the class of ‘dermatological agents’ primarily used to treat skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis. Eczema is a condition in which skin becomes red, itchy, and inflamed due to external agents such as soaps, dyes, or other irritants. Psoriasis is an autoimmune (immune system attacks healthy cells) skin disorder in which the skin becomes scaly, swelled up, and itchy.
MOMATE S OINTMENT 10GM is a combination of two medicines: Mometasone and Salicylic acid. Mometasone belongs to the corticosteroid class and has anti-inflammatory, immunosuppressive, and antiproliferative (inhibit cell growth) properties. It blocks prostaglandins production (chemical messengers) that cause inflammatory symptoms such as red, swollen, and itchy rashes. Salicylic acid is a keratolytic medicine that breaks down the clumps of keratin (protein present on the skin), removes dead skin cells, and softens the skin. It enhances the absorption of mometasone. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory and topical antibacterial agent.
You should use this medicine as prescribed by your doctor.
