In brief: 2nd strongest
Mometasone is in 2nd strongest class out of 7 levels of topical steroids.
Use sparingly and for shortest time possible. Can cause thinning of your skin, sometimes redness and irritation [sensitized skin]. Kids may absorb more so be very careful if used chronically [can effect their whole body]/.
