Is it a bad idea to put mometasone furoate on the face?

In brief: OK short term

Mometasone is intermediate potency steroid; so it should be used sparingly & briefly on the face to prevent problems such as steroid acne.
Ask your doc if there may be a better choice for treating the skin condition you are treating.
