In brief: Let me try to help

Burning, itching, or stinging may occur when you apply this medication, but usually only lasts a short time.
If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. This medication is used to treat skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, allergies, and rash. Mometasone decreases swelling (inflammation), itching, and redness.
