HYDROCORTISONE AND HOW IT WORKS
Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid, a specific type of steroid medication. It works to activate the natural steroids in your skin to reduce redness, swelling, and itching.1
Cortisone is a naturally occurring hormone in the body. When you experience stress or disease, your immune system senses a cue to produce and release cortisone into the bloodstream. Corticosteroid creams work to stimulate production of anti-inflammatory proteins and stop production of inflammatory ones.2
Corticosteroid products contain anywhere from 0.01% to 3% hydrocortisone. The maximum strength available without a prescription is 1%.2

When it comes to the conditions that make you itch, it’s good to have hydrocortisone on hand. From an eczema flare-up to a bad case of poison ivy, hydrocortisone is shown to help provide relief. That’s why Cortizone-10® is the #1 Doctor Recommended OTC Topical Anti-Itch Brand.*Get relief from general itching associated with minor skin irritations, inflammation, and rashes due to:3
Poison ivy, oak, sumac
External anal and genital itching
In cases when symptoms persist for more than 7 days or clear up and occur again within a few days, stop use and ask a doctor if hydrocortisone is right for you.
CORTICOSTEROID THROUGH THE YEARS
Creams are the most popular form of topical steroid application. They are effective for the majority of dermatologic conditions, especially in places where there is skin-to-skin contact such as in the folds of the skin.2
Lotions contain more liquid than creams do, and leave less residue on the skin. They are effective in covering large areas of the skin, making them an effective option for inflammatory conditions like contact dermatitis and seborrheic dermatitis.2
Gels have a drying effect on the skin and leave minimal residue. They combine the cosmetic advantages of creams with the restorative benefits of ointments, making them ideal for treating scalp conditions like psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis.2
