If you have any questions about Elocon Scalp Lotion or your condition, you can discuss them with one of our online prescribers using the “my chats” portion of your Prescription Doctor account.


How Does Elocon Scalp Lotion Work?

Elocon Scalp Lotion contains a corticosteroid (steroid) called mometasone furoate.

The active ingredient - mometasone furoate - is absorbed through the skin where it prevents chemicals in the body that cause inflammation in the skin.

How long does Elocon Scalp Lotion take to work?

You should start noticing an improvement in your condition within a few days of using Elocon Scalp Lotion.

Everyone responds to medicines differently. While some people may notice an improvement in their condition with a few days, others may need to use Elocon Scalp Lotion for longer.

If you do not notice an improvement in your symptoms after using Elocon for 14 days, speak to your doctor.


How Do I Use Elocon Scalp Lotion?

Before you start using Elocon Scalp Lotion, read the patient information leaflet that comes with your medicine.

Always use Elocon Scalp Lotion as directed by your doctor.

You can use Elocon Scalp Lotion on wet or dry hair.

Apply a few drops of Elocon Scalp Lotion to the affected area of the scalp once a day.

Gently massage the lotion into the skin until it has been absorbed.

Make sure to wash your hands after applying the lotion to your scalp.

If you are unsure how to use Elocon Scalp Lotion, speak to your doctor.

Do not use Elocon near the eyes. If you accidentally get the solution in your eyes, rinse your eyes with water. Inform your doctor if pain persists.

What should I do if I forget to use Elocon Scalp Lotion when I should?

If you forget to apply Elocon Scalp Lotion when you should, use it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next application, skip the missed application and continue to use Elocon Scalp Lotion as directed.

Do not apply more Elocon to the scalp to make up for a missed application.

What should I do if I apply too much Elocon Scalp Lotion?

Using too much Elocon Scalp Lotion may increase your risk of side effects or interfere with your hormones. You should inform your doctor if you use more Elocon Scalp Lotion than recommended by your doctor.
