Hydrocortisone Buccal Tablets

The primary and only use of Hydrocortisone Buccal Tablets is to treat mouth ulcers.

Mouth ulcers are common and should clear up on their own without medication within a week or 2. However, if the mouth ulcer lasts longer than 3 weeks, you should seek medical advice from your GP or dentist.

Ulcers located in the mouth are rarely a sign of anything serious, but can be extremely uncomfortable to live with.

Before using medication like Hydrocortisone Buccal Tablets, make sure to give the ulcer time to heal because there is no quick fix. Try to avoid irritating the mouth further by drinking cool drinks, eating softer foods and eating a balanced, healthy diet.

Hydrocortisone Muco Adhesive Buccal Tablets

Once you’ve done all of the at home remedies and taken care of avoiding things that could cause irritation and the ulcer is still there after 3 weeks, it’s time to get some medical advice.

A pharmacist can recommend treatment such as Hydrocortisone Muco Adhesive Buccal Tablets to help speed up healing, prevent infection and reduce pain.

They may recommend:

  • Antimicrobial mouthwash
  • A painkilling tablets, mouthwash, gel or spray
  • Corticosteroid lozenges & tablets (Hydrocortisone Muco Adhesive Buccal Tablets)
  • A salt mouthwash

Treatments provided from a pharmacist may not always work, so an appointment with your GP or dentist may be needed where stronger treatment can be prescribed.

Hydrocortisone Tablets For Low Cortisol

You may be given Hydrocortisone Tablets for low cortisol due to being unable to produce enough cortisol naturally. This happens if you have Addison’s disease, or have had the adrenal glands surgically removed.

Addison’s disease is a rare disorder of the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands are responsible for the production of 2 essential hormones called cortisol and aldosterone. If someone is diagnosed with Addison’s disease, this means that the glands are damaged and does not produce enough cortisol or aldosterone.

Hydrocortisone Tablets for low cortisol is usually the medicine used to replace the cortisol lost in someone with Addison’s disease. Taken 2 to 3 times a day, this will typically last for life due to the body’s inability to produce cortisol.

Eczema

What is Eczema?

Eczema mostly affects children. Here, the skin becomes itchy, red and dry. The most common area affected is the back and front of the knees.Although it can affect any part of the body. Flare ups occur when the condition becomes more acute. The cause is unknown. However, it has been linked to allergies.

Eczema (also known as dermatitis) is a dry skin condition. It is a highly individual condition which varies from person to person and comes in many different forms. It is not contagious so you cannot catch it from someone else.

In mild cases of eczema, the skin is dry, scaly, red and itchy. In more severe cases there may be weeping, crusting and bleeding. Constant scratching causes the skin to split and bleed and also leaves it open to infection.

Eczema affects people of all ages but is primarily seen in children. Those who “grow out” of their eczema during early childhood may see it recur again in later life.

How to treat Eczema.

There is no cure for Eczema, However, use creams such as Hydrocortisone 1% Cream / ointment to control the symptoms and reduce inflammation and itching.

For some people with eczema, the regular use of emollients is all that is needed to keep the condition under control.

However, for many people there will be a time when a steroid preparation is required as part of their treatment in order to bring an eczema flare under control. Topical steroids are the most common treatment for eczema flares. This is when eczema becomes red, sore and very itchy.

Topical steroids are used in short treatment bursts and should be used in conjunction with emollients. Emollients for washing, cleansing and moisturizing are essential to a good skin care routine for treating and preventing dry and itchy skin.Emollients need to be used all the time.
