For the relief of irritant contact dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, insect bite reactions and mild to moderate eczema.

Hydrocortisone cream is a type of medicine called a topical corticosteroid.

Corticosteroids are medicines used for reducing inflammation. Inflammation of the skin happens as a result of allergy or irritation of the skin, and is caused by the release of various substances that are important in the immune system. These substances cause blood vessels to widen and result in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful, such as is seen in dermatitis or eczema.

When hydrocortisone is applied to the skin it works by acting inside the cells to decrease the release of these inflammatory substances. This reduces swelling, redness and itch.

Hydrocortisone is a mild corticosteroid that is applied to the skin to treat a wide variety of inflammatory skin disorders, such as eczema or insect bite reactions.



To be applied topically. Adults and elderly: To be applied sparingly once or twice daily for a maximum period of one week. Children: To be applied as above. Do not use for children under 10 years of age without medical advice.



This preparation is for external use only.

Do not apply to the face, mucosa (eg lining of mouth and nose) or areas around the genitals or anus, unless instructed by your doctor.

Avoid contact of this medicine with the eyes.

If corticosteroids are used long-term, on large areas of skin, raw skin, skin folds, or under airtight dressings (including nappies) they are absorbed into the body more. This increases the risk of local side effects such as skin thinning, and those on other parts of the body, such as a decrease in the production of natural hormones by the adrenal glands. For this reason, continuous, long-term use of this medicine should be avoided wherever possible, particularly in children and on large areas of skin. You should only use airtight dressings over the affected area if instructed by your doctor.

This medicine should be applied thinly and evenly to the affected area(s).

Wash your hands thoroughly after applying this medicine, unless the hands are the area being treated.

Consult your doctor if there is no improvement in your skin after seven days, or if your skin becomes infected during treatment.
