Frequently Asked Questions

Hydrocortisone cream is a topical treatment for eczema, dermatitis, insect bites and stings, and other itchy skin conditions.

 

It’s a steroid or corticosteroid cream, which means it’s very effective when treating dry, itchy, irritated, or inflamed skin.

 

Hydrocortisone may be the perfect remedy for you, especially if you find that other treatments like moisturising creams or emollients just aren’t right for you.

Hydrocortisone can be used at the same time as antifungal treatments such as miconazole and clotrimazole, but you shouldn’t try to use them both at once without speaking to your doctor or pharmacist first.

 

They will probably recommend that you use a product which already contains both active ingredients in the right proportions, for example, Canesten HC cream contains clotrimazole and hydrocortisone in one cream, and Daktacort contains hydrocortisone and miconazole in one cream.

 

If you have thrush or a fungal infection, HC cream won’t be enough to clear your infection alone, so your doctor may recommend one of these creams instead.

 

They use the anti-inflammatory and anti-itch properties of hydrocortisone, and the anti-fungal properties of miconazole or clotrimazole all in one, easing symptoms and treating the cause of your infection at the same time.

Hydrocortisone cream usually isn’t the best treatment for acne and it shouldn’t be used on the face unless you’re specifically told to by your doctor.

 

This is because steroid creams like hydrocortisone can sometimes be too strong for the delicate skin of your face, and can cause skin damage or make your acne worse.

 

If you’re suffering from acne and think that hydrocortisone cream could help, you should speak to your doctor.

 

They’ll examine your acne and determine whether hydrocortisone cream would be right for you, or whether you should use a different treatment.

Hydrocortisone cream can sometimes be used for piles, but you must always read the label to check whether your specific cream is suitable for internal use, as some hydrocortisone creams should only be used on the outside of your body.

 

Brands like Anusol and Germoloids offer hydrocortisone treatments that are specifically designed to treat haemorrhoids.

 

Always check with your pharmacist to make sure you choose the right product to treat your haemorrhoids.
