Q: Is hydrocortisone cream a good choice for treating a rash? A: It can be. Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid drug that has anti-inflammatory effects. Hydrocortisone cream, ointment, or lotion has long been used to treat many skin conditions characterized by itching and rashes. The strongest formulation you can buy over the counter is 1%. Higher concentrations are available by prescription. Some skin conditions such as contact dermatitis, mild poison ivy or oak, allergies, and insect bites respond well to hydrocortisone. But skin disorders are hard to diagnose. If you’re sure that you have a mosquito bite or an allergic rash, for instance, then hydrocortisone is worth trying. If you’re not sure, get medical advice. Don’t use hydrocortisone on cuts, burns, acne , athlete’s foot, ringworm, cold sores , or a bacterial infection—it may make matters worse. Also, while psoriasis tends to get better with hydrocortisone, it usually rebounds. Although most labels say to use the hydrocortisone cream for seven days, if your skin hasn’t started to clear up after 72 hours, see a doctor. You might need a stronger formulation or a different type of topical steroid—or you might not need a steroid at all. Long-term use reduces hydrocortisone’s effectiveness. Excessive use of prescription-strength cream may cause adrenal gland problems and loss of subcutaneous fat—giving skin a “tissue paper” appearance. Children should not use hydrocortisone creams unless their doctor has advised it. Also see Warts: Types and Remedies . Published June 24, 2016 Print
Wow. My daughter 2yro teacher just told me about this concoction today! She said she would make me a bottle of it. Meaning get recipe is lavender, tea tree oil and coconut oil and spray on body, rub down and cover with clothes. In the 2 years my daughter has been here I’ve tried everything on her body except from the inside out. I believe that it is now time to switch her from dairy to possible soy and definitely gluten free foods to help her. Now she only scratches when she’s angry, upset, crying, sleepy and sometimes excited. She’s smart enough to know something is going on with her skin but I really want her dark patches to go away. During the winter her skin patches change to dark and in the spring/summer her patches are invisible besides rosy. I’m hoping charging her diet helps and this cream as well. Thanks for sharing. I’m grateful! #JourneyThroughEczema
