When an allergen or irritant causes the immune system to release histamine, the inflammation of the blood vessels causes the skin to become red, itchy and painful.
HC45 Hydrocortisone Cream contains a corticosteroid called hydrocortisone. This mild steroid reduces itching, redness, irritation and inflammation for up to 12 hours.
The cream also moisturises the skin, and encourages healing.
It may take between 3 and 7 days of using HC45 Cream to relieve your symptoms. If your symptoms do not improve, or indeed become worse after these 7 days, stop using HC45 Cream and speak to a doctor or a pharmacist.
HC45 Hydrocortisone Cream is a smooth white cream that can be applied directly and sparingly to the inflamed areas of the skin once or twice a day.
Use a small amount and rub it gently into the affected area.
