Hydrocortisone Cream 1% effectively treats itchy, irritated or inflamed skin caused by insect bites, mild to moderate eczema and contact or allergic dermatitis. Hydrocortisone belongs to a group of medicines called topical corticosteroids. These work by calming the inflammation that occurs during certain skin conditions or reactions.

Hydrocortisone Cream belongs to a group of medicines named topical cortiscosteroids that work by calming inflammation that occurs from skin conditions and reactions. In order to calm the inflammation, the cream alters the body’s responses to inflammatory reactions, therefore reducing swelling, redness and itching. Hydrocortisone Cream alleviates itching and irritation for up to 12 hours and promotes the healing of insect bites, mild to moderate eczema, detergent hands, nickel allergies, plant allergies, strong detergent chemical reactions and dermatitis.
