Topical means applied to skin and should not be confused with anabolic steroids. Hydrocortisone is used to relieve itching, inflamed skin and redness caused by different skin conditions such as mild to moderate eczema, insect bites and stings as well as allergic contact dermatitis and irritant contact dermatitis. A doctor may also prescribe hydrocortisone for nappy rash or psoriasis. Hydrocortisone works by suppressing the body?s immune response in the skin cells and stop them releasing the chemicals causing the inflammation. Please read the Patient Information leaflet fully as there are many conditions where the use of Hydrocortisone cream is not recommended e.g. on children below the age of 10 or on the face. How to use Before using hydrocortisone cream: Some medical conditions may interact with hydrocortisone cream. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you: if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances if you have chickenpox, shingles, measles, or tuberculosis (TB), or have had a positive TB skin test or a recent vaccination if you have had a skin infection, thinning of the skin (atrophy), or a certain type of severe acne (rosacea) if you are taking an oral corticosteroid (eg, prednisone) Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with hydrocortisone cream. Because little, if any, of hydrocortisone cream is absorbed into the blood, the risk of it interacting with another medicine is low. Ask your health care provider if hydrocortisone cream may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine. Using hydrocortisone cream: Use hydrocortisone cream as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions. Apply a small amount of medicine to the affected area. Gently rub it in until it is evenly distributed. Wash your hands after applying hydrocortisone cream, unless your hands are part of the treated area. Do not bandage or wrap the affected area unless directed otherwise by your doctor. Do not use hydrocortisone cream on your face, groin, or underarms unless your doctor tells you otherwise. If you miss a dose of hydrocortisone cream, apply it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular schedule. Do not use 2 doses at once. Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use hydrocortisone cream.

If hydrocortisone cream was prescribed to treat the diaper area of a child, avoid using tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants. Hydrocortisone cream has a corticosteroid in it. Before you start any new medicine, check the label to see if it has a corticosteroid in it too. If it does or you are not sure, check with your doctor or pharmacist. Tell your doctor or dentist that you use hydrocortisone cream before you receive any medical or dental care, emergency care, or surgery. Check with your doctor before having vaccinations while you are using hydrocortisone cream. Serious side effects may occur if too much of hydrocortisone cream is absorbed through the skin. This may be more likely to occur if you use hydrocortisone cream over a large area of the body. It may also be more likely if you wrap or bandage the area after you apply hydrocortisone cream. The risk is greater in children. Do not use more than the prescribed dose.
