Mometasone is a corticosteroid, meaning that it is similar to cortisone, a hormone made in human adrenal glands. Cortisone stops inflammation, and mometasone is used to stop the inflammation that causes signs and symptoms of allergic rhinitis (hay fever), psoriasis, and eczema. When used in the nose mometasone (Nasonex) stops itchiness and runny or stuffy nose. When used on the skin mometasone helps to clear up red, itchy, scaly patches.

Dose–mometasone is available as a nasal spray which should be sprayed twice into each nostril once or twice a day. It is also available as cream, ointment, or lotion, to be spread onto patches of affected skin twice a day.
