Itch Relief & Skin Rash Creams

Intense itching is a common inflammatory response to allergens, insect bites, and eczema. It’s intensely uncomfortable and if left untreated, will drive you crazy. Itching occurs when the body’s immune system responds to an irritation by releasing various substances. Blood flows to the affected area and it becomes swollen, inflamed, and itchy.

Corticosteroid creams can relieve the itching by reducing inflammation. Adults and children aged 10+ can use hydrocortisone cream to treat itching caused by allergies, insect bites, eczema, and dermatitis. Always keep a tube of corticosteroid cream handy just in case you are bitten by anything. It will give you instant relief.
