How do I use Hydrocortisone Cream?

Hydrocortisone should be applied topically to the affected skin only.

The cream should be applied sparingly to the affected area, taking care not to get too much on the surrounding healthy skin. Application of the cream is usually once or twice a day until the condition has improved. Once the symptoms have settled, treatment should be discontinued, reduced in frequency or switched to a less potent preparation.

Continuous treatment with hydrocortisone is generally regarded as safe, but in children treatment should be for no longer than seven days. If you have not seen any improvement in your condition within this timeframe then this should be reviewed by your GP.

Hydrocortisone can be used in all age groups including children and the elderly. The cream should always be used in accordance with the prescribers instructions.
