    Hydrocortisone is a steroid (corticosteroid) medicine that works to temporarily relieve itch and helps reduce inflammation. When skin is irritated a chemical reaction causes blood vessels to widen. After this, the skin can become red, swollen, and itchy. Topical hydrocortisone products like Cortizone-10® stop these reactions and temporarily reduce itching from minor skin irritations.

    Specially designed to provide itch relief for sensitive skin. This cream is made with non-irritating ingredients that are hypoallergenic and free of fragrances, dyes, and parabens.
