Please do not self medicate with steroid creams like mometasone. It can be very harmful. Mostly, it is a boil or hair root infection . Consult dermatologist who will give pain killers and anti biotics. If it does not subside after 5 days, it has to be incised or cut to drain the pus. Full tests for diabetes need to be done at the earliest.

Hi! Mometasone is a steroid cream and should never be used without a dermatologist's advise. Pus boils indicates infection and mometasone can make it worse. Kindly visit a dermatologist as you may need oral antibiotics. Regards Dr Rasya Dixit
