Hc45

How does it work? 

Hc45 Hydrocortisone Cream contains the active ingredient hydrocortisone acetate, which is a type of medicine called a corticosteroid, known to treat skin conditions. Corticosteroids are used for reducing inflammation. Inflammation of the skin happens due to 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, resulting in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful. When hydrocortisone is applied to the skin it works by acting inside the skin cells to decrease the release of these inflammatory substances. This reduces swelling, redness and itching.

 

Directions for the use of Hc45 Hydrocortisone Cream:

  • Apply to the affected area once or twice a day for seven days.

 

Caution before using Hc45 Hydrocortisone Cream:

  • Do not use on eyes or face, anal or genital areas, or on broken or infected skin; e.g. impetigo, cold sores, acne or athletes foot.
  • Do not use if pregnant, or on children under 10 without medical advice.
  • If the condition does not improve after the recommended seven day time period, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
  • You should carefully read all product packaging and labels prior to use.
