Is Mometasone Furoate effective in treatment of skin burn on lips?
yes would help to reduce inflammation
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
The residual swelling would be due to inflammation that occurred as a result of the burn though infection can result in swelling as well.
You can add the use of the steroid cream (mometasone) to the silver sulfadiazine.
The mometasone would help reduce the inflammation. If possible you can add an oral anti inflammatory pain killer. It may not be painful at this point but the anti inflammatory effects of these medications may help if the inflammation is still significant.
Examples are naproxen, ibuprofen, aspirin.
The silver sulfadiazine has anti bacterial properties so you may not need to use the neosporin in addition to it. It is used to help treat and prevent infections in burns.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any additional questions
