For Dermatologic Use Only. Not for Ophthalmic Use.
Mometasone furoate cream 0.1% is a corticosteroid indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses in patients ≥ 2 years of age. (1)
- Apply a thin film to the affected skin areas once daily. (2)
- Discontinue therapy when control is achieved. (2)
- If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassess diagnosis. (2)
- Do not use with occlusive dressings unless directed by a physician. (2)
Apply a thin film of mometasone furoate cream 0.1% to the affected skin areas once daily. Mometasone furoate cream 0.1% may be used in pediatric patients 2 years of age or older. Since safety and efficacy of mometasone furoate cream 0.1% have not been established in pediatric patients below 2 years of age; use in this age group is not recommended [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1) and Use in Specific Populations (8.4)].
Therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassessment of diagnosis may be necessary. [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)].
Do not use mometasone furoate cream 0.1% with occlusive dressings unless directed by a physician. Do not apply mometasone furoate cream 0.1% in the diaper area if the patient still requires diapers or plastic pants, as these garments may constitute occlusive dressing.
Avoid contact with eyes. Wash hands after each application. Avoid use on the face, groin, or axillae.
Mometasone furoate cream 0.1% is for topical use only. It is not for oral, ophthalmic, or intravaginal use.
Cream, 0.1%. Each gram of mometasone furoate cream 0.1% contains 1 mg of mometasone furoate in a white to off-white smooth and homogenous cream base.
Mometasone furoate cream 0.1% is contraindicated in those patients with a history of hypersensitivity to any of the components in the preparation.
• Reversible HPA axis suppression with the potential for glucocorticosteroid insufficiency after withdrawal of treatment, Cushing’s syndrome, and hyperglycemia may occur due to systemic absorption. Patients applying a topical steroid to a large surface area or to areas under occlusion should be evaluated periodically for evidence of HPA axis suppression. Modify use should HPA axis suppression develop. (5.1, 8.4)
• Pediatric patients may be more susceptible to systemic toxicity. (5.1, 8.4)
• May increase the risk of cataracts and glaucoma. If visual symptoms occur, consider referral to an ophthalmologist. (5.2)
Most common adverse reactions are: burning, pruritus, and skin atrophy. (6)To report SUSPECTED ADVERSE REACTIONS, contact G&W Laboratories, Inc. at 1-800-922-1038 or FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch.
Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in clinical practice.
In controlled clinical trials involving 319 subjects, the incidence of adverse reactions associated with the use of mometasone furoate cream 0.1% was 1.6%. Reported reactions included burning, pruritus, and skin atrophy. Reports of rosacea associated with the use of mometasone furoate cream 0.1% have also been received. In controlled clinical trials (n=74) involving pediatric subjects 2 to 12 years of age, the incidence of adverse experiences associated with the use of mometasone furoate cream 0.1% was approximately 7%. Reported reactions included stinging, pruritus, and furunculosis.
The following adverse reactions were reported to be possibly or probably related to treatment with mometasone furoate cream 0.1% during clinical trials in 4% of 182 pediatric subjects 6 months to 2 years of age: decreased glucocorticoid levels, 2; paresthesia, 2; folliculitis, 1; moniliasis, 1; bacterial infection; 1 skin depigmentation, 1. The following signs of skin atrophy were also observed among 97 subjects treated with mometasone furoate cream 0.1% in a clinical trial: shininess, 4; telangiectasia, 1; loss of elasticity, 4; loss of normal skin markings, 4; thinness, 1; and bruising, 1.
Because adverse reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.
Postmarketing reports for local adverse reactions to topical corticosteroids include irritation, dryness, folliculitis, hypertrichosis, acneiform eruptions, hypopigmentation, perioral dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, secondary infection, striae, and miliaria. These adverse reactions may occur more frequently with the use of occlusive dressings.
Postmarketing reports for ophthalmic adverse reactions to topical corticosteroids include blurred vision, cataracts, glaucoma, increased intraocular pressure, and central serous chorioretinopathy.

No drug-drug interaction studies have been conducted with mometasone furoate cream 0.1%.
Teratogenic Effects Pregnancy Category C:
There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Therefore, mometasone furoate cream 0.1% should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
Corticosteroids have been shown to be teratogenic in laboratory animals when administered systemically at relatively low dosage levels. Some corticosteroids have been shown to be teratogenic after dermal application in laboratory animals.
When administered to pregnant rats, rabbits, and mice, mometasone furoate increased fetal malformations. The doses that produced malformations also decreased fetal growth, as measured by lower fetal weights and/or delayed ossification. Mometasone furoate also caused dystocia and related complications when administered to rats during the end of pregnancy.
In mice, mometasone furoate caused cleft palate at subcutaneous doses of 60 mcg/kg and above. Fetal survival was reduced at 180 mcg/kg. No toxicity was observed at 20 mcg/kg. (Doses of 20, 60, and 180 mcg/kg in the mouse are approximately 0.01, 0.02, and 0.05 times the estimated maximum clinical topical dose from mometasone furoate cream 0.1% on a mcg/m2 basis.)
In rats, mometasone furoate produced umbilical hernias at topical doses of 600 mcg/kg and above. A dose of 300 mcg/kg produced delays in ossification, but no malformations. (Doses of 300 and 600 mcg/kg in the rat are approximately 0.2 and 0.4 times the estimated maximum clinical topical dose from mometasone furoate cream 0.1% on a mcg/m2 basis.)
In rabbits, mometasone furoate caused multiple malformations (e.g., flexed front paws, gallbladder agenesis, umbilical hernia, hydrocephaly) at topical doses of 150 mcg/kg and above (approximately 0.2 times the estimated maximum clinical topical dose from mometasone furoate cream 0.1% on a mcg/m2 basis). In an oral study, mometasone furoate increased resorptions and caused cleft palate and/or head malformations (hydrocephaly and domed head) at 700 mcg/kg. At 2800 mcg/kg most litters were aborted or resorbed. No toxicity was observed at 140 mcg/kg. (Doses at 140, 700, and 2800 mcg/kg in the rabbit are approximately 0.2, 0.9, and 3.6 times the estimated maximum clinical topical dose from mometasone furoate cream 0.1% on a mcg/m2 basis.)
When rats received subcutaneous doses of mometasone furoate throughout pregnancy or during the later stages of pregnancy, 15 mcg/kg caused prolonged and difficult labor and reduced the number of live births, birth weight, and early pup survival. Similar effects were not observed at 7.5 mcg/kg. (Doses of 7.5 and 15 mcg/kg in the rat are approximately 0.005 and 0.01 times the estimated maximum clinical topical dose from mometasone furoate cream 0.1% on a mcg/m2 basis.)
