What Is Hydrocortisone Cream?

Hydrocortisone cream, sometimes referred to as cortisone cream, is a topical steroid that helps reduce inflammation. Hydrocortisone cream works by helping to reduce the actions of chemicals in the body that result in inflammation. Topical hydrocortisone cream is for external use only. If you have questions, concerns, or are currently taking any medications, talk to your healthcare provider before using hydrocortisone cream. If you are allergic to corticosteroids, you should not ure hydrocortisone cream. Some popular hydrocortisone brands include Cortizone 10 and Aveeno hydrocortisone cream.

What Is Hydrocortisone Cream Used For?

Hydrocortisone cream is used to treat skin inflammation caused by a number of conditions. These uses include hydrocortisone cream for eczema, psoriasis, and rash caused by an allergic reaction. Hydrocortisone cream can help to temporarily reduce itching and discomfort caused by these conditions. However, it is important to note that hydrocortisone cream will not treat skin infections. Additional hydrocortisone uses include hydrocortisone for hemorrhoids and poison ivy. It is also important to understand that hydrocortisone cream uses do not typically include applications on the face. Using hydrocortisone cream on the face may worsen some conditions, such as impetigo, rosacea, and acne. Long term use of high strength hydrocortisone cream on the delicate skin of the face may also result in unsightly skin damage. Always use over the counter or OTC hydrocortisone cream exactly as directed.

Hydrocortisone Cream Side Effects

Hydrocortisone side effects may include skin redness, dryness, burning, itching, and/or peeling. Thinning of the skin and easy bruising may also occur. In some cases, acne, unusual hair growth, and/or stretch marks may appear. Be sure to use topical hydrocortisone cream exactly as directed. If side effects persist or worsen, contact your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

How Long Does Hydrocortisone Take To Work?

Each body is different. Some people may see symptoms like itching and burning start to decrease shortly after starting to use hydrocortisone cream, while for others, it may take longer to see results. You should always use hydrocortisone cream as directed. If you have questions or concerns about using hydrocortisone cream, don’t hesitate to reach out to your doctor for professional guidance.

Does Hydrocortisone Expire?

Yes, hydrocortisone cream and ointment does expire. Like with many other over the counter topical creams and ointments, you can find the expiration date printed on the tube. Look for it on the product label, box, or on the crimp at the end of the tube. You should not use expired hydrocortisone cream.

Hydrocortisone Cream Strengths

Hydrocortisone cream is available in different strengths. Hydrocortisone 1% is a designation you are likely to see on many over the counter hydrocortisone creams. Some of the stronger hydrocortisone creams are only available via a prescription from your doctor. However, even if you just need an over the counter option and aren’t sure which to choose, do not hesitate to ask your doctor or pharmacist for a recommendation.
