Being a corticosteroid, Hydrocortisone has anti–inflammatory, anti-pruritic and anti–allergic properties. In some cases where local action on infecting fungi or bacteria is required when being treated with antifungal and bacterial agent, the anti-inflammatory and anti – pruritic effect of Hydrocortisone may accelerate the improvement of clinical symptoms.
Inflammatory disorders of the skin such as contact eczema, seborrhoeal eczema, intertrigo, non-specific pruritis, psoriasis and neurodermatitis.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION:
A sufficient quantity of Drugfield Hydrocortisone Cream is rubbed into the affected skin area –after cleaning –twice daily, preferably mornings and evenings. The treatment should be continued a few days after the disappearance of symptoms such as itching and burning, in order to assure complete eradication of the skin disorder.
Systemic effects need not be expected following topical application of Hydrocortisone since absorption into the blood stream is minimal. Hypopigmentation, skin atrophy or striae do not follow Drugfield Hydrocortisone Cream application since these occur only during long term treatment with corticosteroids.
