WELCOME TO HCM

MOMATE IS STEROID OINTMENT IT IS USED TO TREAT THE INFLAMMATION OF THE SKIN. IT CAN BE USED AS LAST RESORT.

THE BEST TREATMENT IS DAILY AND FREQUENT LUBRICATION WITH AN EMOLLIENT. HIGHLY MOISTERIZING PRODUCTS LIKE AQUAPHOR, CRISCO VEGETABLE SHORTENIN CAN BE TRIED.

PROPER NUTRITION, TAKING LUKEWARM SHOWERS AND AVOIDING HARSH SCRUBBING WILL BE HELPFUL.

I ADVICE YOU TO USE THE VASELINE FOR TWO TO THREE TIMES A DAYS, STILL IF IT PERSISTS THEN YOU CAN CONSIDER TOPICAL STEROIDS.

HOPE YOU ARE SATISFIED WITH EXPLANATION.

HAVE GOOD HEALTH.
