Hydrocortisone Cream

Hydrocortisone Cream is a smooth white cream for application to the skin only. It contains hydrocortisone which belongs to a group of medicines called corticosteroids. Hydrocortisone Cream is used to reduce inflammation in a variety of inflammatory skin conditions, such as:

  • Mild to moderate eczema
  • Dermatitis caused by irritants or allergens
  • Insect bite reactions

Hydrocortisone Cream should not be confused with anabolic steroids, used by some body builders and taken as tablets or injections.

Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream

Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream is used to treat fungal sweat rash ad athlete’s foot when additional symptoms arise such as swelling, redness and itching. Once the cream is applied it begins to treat the fungal skin infection and reduces swelling and itching.

Athlete’s foot otherwise known medically as tinea pedis, is a fungal infection that usually begins in between the toes. It commonly occurs in people whose feet become very sweaty during exercise or whilst wearing tightfitting shoes. Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream Athlete’s Foot aims to alleviate the symptoms associated with athlete’s foot.

Signs and symptoms of athlete’s foot include a scaly rash that causes itching, stinging and burning. If athlete’s foot has been diagnosed by a medical professional or you have a hunch you might have it, not sharing towels and clothes with other family members is recommended. It is a highly contagious infection that can spread via contaminated floors, towels and clothing.

Over the counter medications such as Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream Athlete’s Foot or other antifungal medications are used to treat it, although the infection often recurs.

Before using Canesten Hydrocortisone Cream you should first make sure that you have a fungal skin infection by seeking advice from your doctor or pharmacist.

Hydrocortisone Cream For Vulvar Itching

Using topical steroids such as Hydrocortisone Cream for vulvar itching is typically what is given for itching in these sensitive areas. Often prescribed for numerous different skin conditions of the vulva, such as lichen sclerosus or lichen planus, topical steroids help reduce the itchiness and redness.

It’s important to note that using Hydrocortisone Cream for vulvar itching should only be done if you have been given instructions by your doctor. In many of the patient information leaflets for topical steroids, there will be a warning against using them in the genital area.

However, if a specific skin condition has been diagnosed on the vulva, your doctor will instruct you to use a topical steroid, as this is the correct treatment for the condition.

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.
