Yes, it is a topical steroid lotion suitable for scalp dermatitis or psoriasis. It is an alcohol based lotion, so children will often complain it stings. A hydrogel is also available, which is water based and so better tolerated by children or any patient with severe inflammation or breaks in the skin. Zatamil ( mometasone 0.1%) is classified as potent, but is extremely safe for both children and adults. The risk of inducing atrophy in the scalp is extremely low.
