I pulled a hangnail, and I told my parents that it kind of hurt. When I was younger, I pulled a hangnail, and I got a red bump , filled with pus where my hangnail was. I searched it on wikipedia, and it's called Paronychia. My dad gave me mometasone furoate to put on it, but I dont know if I should use it. Can I use mometasone furoate on the bump? Answered by Mckenzie Havis 4 months ago.

mometasone furoate contains an ingredient that is a corticosteroid, which is an anti-inflammatory (reduces redness/swelling/inflammation) if it is still red/swollen/tender it may be infected, and you really need something to treat that. first, soak the finger in a mixture of antibacterial soap and warm water (not hot!!) for about 15 min. then use a polysporin cream or ointment and cover it with a bandaid for a couple of days (neosporin or similar). an over the counter medication such as ibuprofen will help reduce pain/inflammation/swelling too. hope you feel better! ps- mometasone furoate is a prescription item only, so technically you shouldn't be sharing your dad's prescription, its against the law.

Mometasone Furoate Ointment 0.1%--its for itchy inflammatory skin Asked by Demetrius Jones 4 months ago.

--How does it work? This medicine contains the active ingredient mometasone furoate, which is a type of medicine called a corticosteroid. Corticosteroids are medicines used for reducing inflammation. Inflammation of the skin happens due to irritation of the skin, and is caused by the release of various substances that are important in the immune system. These substances cause blood vessels to widen, resulting in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful. When mometasone is applied to the skin it works by acting inside the skin cells to decrease the release of these inflammatory substances. This reduces swelling, redness and itch. Mometasone is a potent corticosteroid that is applied to the skin to treat severe inflammatory skin disorders, such as dermatitis and psoriasis, that have not responded to milder steroids. The active ingredient is formulated in a moisturising base that provides a layer of oil on the surface of the skin, helping to prevent water from evaporating from the skin surface. This helps reduce the dryness, scaling and itching of these skin conditions. ---What is it used for? * Atopic dermatitis * Psoriasis ----Warning! * If corticosteroids are used long-term, on large areas of skin, raw skin, skin folds, or under airtight dressings (including nappies) they are absorbed into the body more. This increases the risk of local side effects such as skin thinning, and those on other parts of the body, such as a decrease in the production of natural hormones by the adrenal glands. For this reason, continuous, long-term use of this medicine should be avoided wherever possible, particularly in children and on large areas of skin. You should only use airtight dressings over the affected area if instructed by your doctor. * This preparation is for external use only. * If you have been prescribed this medicine to treat psoriasis you should have regular check-ups with your doctor. This is because although corticosteroids may be useful for psoriasis in the short-term, they can sometimes make psoriasis worse, and may cause the condition to relapse into generalised pustular psoriasis after the treatment is stopped. * This medicine should be applied thinly and evenly to the affected area(s). * Avoid contact of this medicine with the eyes and the moist membranes lining the inside of certain parts of the body, eg mouth, nasal passages (mucous membranes). Rinse with cold water if accidental contact occurs. * This medicine should not be used for longer than five days on the face or in children. * If this medicine is to be used on the face or in children, you should not use airtight dressings (including nappies) to cover the area treated, as this may increase the absorption of the medicine into the body, increasing the risk of adverse effects. * Wash your hands thoroughly after applying this medicine, unless the hands are the area being treated. * Consult your doctor if your skin becomes infected during treatment, as you may need to stop using this medicine and start treatment with antibiotics. Use with caution in * Children * Psoriasis ---Not to be used in * Acne vulgaris * Chronic inflammatory disorder of the facial skin (acne rosacea) * Infections of the skin with viruses (eg Herpes simplex, chickenpox), fungi (eg thrush, ringworm, athlete's foot) or bacteria (eg impetigo) * Inflammatory rash around the mouth (perioral dermatitis) * Itching around the back passage and genitals * Nappy rash * Skin reactions following vaccination * Skin sores caused by syphilis * Tuberculosis infection of the skin * Widespread plaque psoriasis This medicine should not be used if you are allergic to one or any of its ingredients. Please inform your doctor or pharmacist if you have previously experienced such an allergy. If you feel you have experienced an allergic reaction, stop using this medicine and inform your doctor or pharmacist immediately. Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Certain medicines should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding. However, other medicines may be safely used in pregnancy or breastfeeding providing the benefits to the mother outweigh the risks to the unborn baby. Always inform your doctor if you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy, before using any medicine. * This medicine should not be used during pregnancy unless considered essential by your doctor. If it is prescribed by your doctor it should not be used on large areas of skin, underneath airtight dressings, or for prolonged periods of time. Consult your doctor for further information. * This medicine should not be used during breastfeeding unless considered essential by your doctor. If it is prescribed by your doctor it should not be used on large areas of skin, underneath airtight dressings or for prolonged periods of time. If it is applied to the breasts it should be washed off carefully before breastfeeding and then reapplied afterwards. Label warnings * This medication is to be spread thinly and sparingly on the skin. Side effects Medicines and their possible side effects can affect individual people in different ways. The following are some of the side effects that are known to be associated with this medicine. Because a side effect is stated here, it does not mean that all people using this medicine will experience that or any side effect. * Thinning of the skin * Changes in skin pigmentation * Pins and needles (paraesthesia) * Acne * Allergic inflammation of the skin (contact dermatitis) * Stretch marks (striae) * Excessive hair growth (hypertrichosis) * Inflammation of the hair follicles (folliculitis) * Temporary burning and stinging on application The side effects listed above may not include all of the side effects reported by the drug's manufacturer.

I've been taking a Mometasone Furoate inhaler for my lung inflammation, and since then my heart rate is about 108 or 100 Beats Per Minute. Is this a bad sign or just part of what I'm supposed to go through, because I can't find anything about it increasing my heart rate on the rest of the web. I'm also taking albuterol (inhaler) , but haven't taken it for about a whole day, so I highly doubt it's that. I've just had pnuemonia and now I have bronchitis. Answered by Octavio Berringer 4 months ago.

It's possible that the mometasone could be causing your heart rate to go up. It's also possible that your respiratory infection is causing the increase. Mometasone is a corticosteroid that causes vaso (blood vessels) and broncho-dialation. In turn this makes your blood pressure decrease because the blood vessels open up more and the blood isn't pressing as hard on the vessel walls. When this happens, your heart compensates by beating faster. This insures that an equal amount of blood will be circulated even though your blood pressure dropped. When you are ill your heart rate can go up for a number of reasons, stress hormones, fever (raises your metabolic rate which raise your heart rate), or pain (a neurological response). Although anything over 100 bpm is considered abnormal it sounds like you have several precipitating factors causing your elevated heart rate. Mainly if your concerned about your heart rate you might panic a bit which elevates the heart rate even more. Try to distract yourself with something relaxing (with no movement) that you enjoy like reading a book or watching tv. Then take your heart rate in an hour using a watch with a second hand and only count for 15 secs and multiply by 4. This will help you get a more accurate reading. If you take the rate for a whole minute you might start to panic during the wait and the rate will go up. If it's still over 100 you should seek medical advice just in case. Hope this helps and I hope you feel better. Answered by Rema Wash 4 months ago.

albuterol can increase heart rate but mometasone furoate is a cortisone derivative and should have no effect on heart rate. if you haven't used the albuterol for 24 hrs, your heart rate is probably a result of the bronchitis. i would inform your doctor.

i have a tube of mometasone furoate which my girlfriends mother gave to me for my cold sore. i havent used it yet because ive been using abreva instead. now im on vacation and forgot the abreva at home but i have the mometasone furoate. what i would like to know is, is mometasone furoate actually for cold sores or did she tell me wrong? i don't want to take it and risk doing something to my body that will have a negative effect so i have not used it at all Answered by Jenice Alo 4 months ago.

Mometasone furoate ointment or cream is usually prescribed for severe eczema or psoriasis which is unresponsive to other treatments. It is a strong corticosteroid and should definitely not be used for viral skin lesions such as cold sores! If you have no medication with you then just use something like Vaseline (petroleum jelly) to keep it covered and to stop the cracking and soreness. It should heal up by itself soon anyway.

Mometasone furoate on face?
I have some Elocon i would like to use on some troubling areas on my forehead.. it has pink blotches and scabs on it from a chemical burn.. is it safe to use? I've used it on my face before, but would it help in this case? Thanks. Asked by Christopher Paguirigan 4 months ago.

Your chemical burn is technically healed by now so what you are looking for is more or less cosmetic effect. Well Mometasone furoate will have a thining effect on your skin. It will even out and smooth the blotches and scabs. The only problem is that of location. They say do not use Elocon on the face. And you are talking bout the fore head. So unless you did it at night and wore a banbana over it so that it does not get to your eyes. Answered by Kathrine Lavala 4 months ago.


Does mometasone furoate cream show up in drug tests?
Going for a job interview and just applied this cream on my arm. This was prescribed for a slight case of eczema. Will it show up in a drug test? I'm nervous now.. Asked by Bobby Hoock 4 months ago.

Mometasone will not show up in a drug test. It is just a steroid to help your skin heal itself. A drug test only shows some class 2-5 controlled substances and illegal drugs. Besides, anything you have a valid prescription for is okay to use, even if it does show up in a drug test. You simply would need to show them the prescription. Answered by Trey Proa 4 months ago.

The only way cigarettes will show up is if the specifically test for nicotene then it would for sure. Yes , anything that is consumed whether Popping pills,m snorting , eating it can all be tested for and some test will exactly how much is in your system...You seemed concerned...if your popping expect to get caught one way or another and that would be the easy out..otherwise if you dont get caught you may become addicted to these pills, or to nicotine, both which are life rendering!!
