INTRODUCTION

DERMITOP contains mometasone which belongs to the group of medicines called topical corticosteroids. It is used to reduce itchiness and redness caused by certain skin problems such as psoriasis and atopic eczema (atopic dermatitis) in adults and children aged 2 years and above. Psoriasis is an auto-immune skin disorder, in which itchy, scaly, pink patches develop on the knees, elbows, scalp and other parts of the body. Atopic eczema is a condition in which, itchy, red or brown patches develops on the skin due to external agents e.g. detergents.

Mometasone inhibits the production of inflammatory mediators like prostaglandins and leukotrienes and decrease the number of epidermal mitoses, reduce apoptosis and enhance neutrophils survival in the affected skin cells. If you feel your skin become irritated or sensitive after using this medicine, inform your doctor immediately. Do not use this medicine on your face for more than recommended duration. Treated areas on the face should not be covered with a plaster or bandage. Avoid applying this medicine around your eyes, including eyelids. Before applying this medicine, inform your doctor if you have any other skin disorders like rosacea, acne, ulcerated skin or perianal and genital itching. Contact your doctor before using this medicine if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

USES OF DERMITOP

  • Treats psoriasis and atopic dermatitis in adults and children aged 2 years and above

HOW DERMITOP WORKS

Mometasone has anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and vasoconstrictive properties. It inhibits the biosynthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes (potent mediators of inflammation) by inhibiting the release of their common precursor arachidonic acid.

Additionally, it inhibits the expression of phospholipase A2 and proinflammatory genes such as interleukin-1 alpha, nuclear factor-kappa-B and tumor necrosis factor (TNF), which significantly reduces apoptosis and relieves the skin from inflammation and itching. 

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Always apply this medicine as directed by your physician. It is for external use only. Apply a thin layer of this medicine on the affected area once daily. Treated areas on the face should not be covered with a plaster or bandage. Do not use this medicine on your face for more than 5 days. Avoid applying this medicine around your eyes, including eyelids.
