How Does Elocon Ointment Work?

When the skin comes in contact with an allergen, it fights by producing chemicals to react to the irritant. These chemical substances are responsible for swelling and inflammation. Elocon ointment has the active ingredient mometasone furoate. It works by narrowing blood vessels that cause swelling. The cream reduces the production of the chemicals that cause inflammation, itching, redness and pain on sore skin. Thus returning it to a normal and healthy state.
