MOTASONE (Cream – Ointment – External Solution)

Soft Local Steroid

COMPOSITION:
Each 100g Cream, Ointment, or External Solution contains 100mg Mometasone Furoate.

MECHANISM OF ACTION:

Like other topical corticosteroids, MOTASONE has anti-inflammatory, anti-pruritic, and vasoconstrictive properties. However, corticosteroids are thought to act by the induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, which called lipocortins. These proteins control the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandin and leukotrienes by inhibiting the release of their common precursor arachidonic acid (Arachidonic acid is released from membrane’s phospholipids by phospholipase A2).

INDICATIONS:

MOTASONE cream or ointment is indicated for the relief of inflammatory, pruritic, and manifestations of corticosteroid responsive dermatosis such as psoriasis, and atopic dermatitis.

MOTASONE external solution is indicated for the relief of scalp infections such as inflammatory, pruritic, psoriasis, and seborrhoeic dermatitis of the scalp.

USAGE:
MOTASONE cream or ointment: Apply a thin layer to the affected skin areas once daily.
MOTASONE external solution: Apply the External Solution to the affected area of the scalp once daily. Massage gently.
