Description

What is Hc45 Hydrocortisone Cream?

Hc45 Hydrocortisone Cream is a treatment for dry skin conditions, such as eczema and dermatitis, that can also be used to ease reactions to insect bites, nickel allergies, plant allergies, and other irritants. It soothes the inflammation which happens when your skin is exposed to something that irritates it, easing itching, irritation and other symptoms.

What is dermatitis?

Dermatitis is a type of eczema, a dry skin condition which flares up when your skin comes into contact with something that irritates it. If you have dermatitis, then avoiding a particular irritant can help you to avoid flare-ups, but this isn’t always possible, which is why some people need creams and other treatments to help to control their symptoms. Some of the most common symptoms of dermatitis include:

  • Redness
  • Blisters
  • Dry skin
  • Cracked skin
  • Inflammation
  • Thickened skin

How will Hc45 Hydrocortisone Cream help to soothe dry skin and insect bites?

Hc45 hydrocortisone cream contains 1% w/w of the active ingredient hydrocortisone acetate. This ingredient works by changing how your body reacts to irritants (which can aggravate eczema or dermatitis) and insect stings. This reduces inflammation in your skin, easing symptoms like redness, itching, and swelling.
