Discussions that mention elocon

Lupus board


You are not alone ((((((((hugs)))))))). The rashes can be infuriating! In addition to prednisone and plaquenil, my Dr. lets me use Elocon (generic mometasone furoate) lotion for short periods of time, it helps, but you can't use it long term just short bursts every now and then. You probably already know this, but stay out of the sun and avoid getting too hot-overheating of any kind, even from a shower or bath seems to make some rashes worse.
There is a lady, VeeJ on this site who knows a tremondous amount about Lupus rashes, as well as many others. This is a very supportive site, and I hope you enjoy it. It is also a great site to search for first hand information about different Lupus symptoms etc.. Take Care.
