Can Momate cream be used for long time?
Hi, also I have developed chapped lips, and the lips sometimes seem to be weeping pus, ive been using sebamed lip balm for control and zincovit, cyfolac, zentel tablets and also defcort. I have stopped these tablets now. It's been 4 days.
gradually taper the steroids and apply moisturiser
Hello. Welcome to Healthcaremagic.com. I have read your query. I understand your concern.
Momate cream as you already know is a steroid containing cream that when used for long leads to addiction of skin. So sudden stoppage of such creams leads to flare up of existing condition and redness of skin usually associated with itch/ burning sensation.
In such cases, I prefer to advise milder potency steroid like hydrocortisone for a week and then taper it gradually. Alongwith oral antihistaminics like levocetrizine for symptomatic relief are given.
Put lots of moisturisers over face multiple times a day and have strict sun protection.
Consult your Dermatologist in person for prescription. I am sure he would agree with my suggestions. You may revert back to me after 7days of application of medications for further advice.
I hope it helps.
