Eurax HC Description

Talk to your doctor about a prescription to buy Eurax HC cream if you are bothered by the itching, inflammation, or irritation from hives, insect bites or stings, chickenpox, an eczema flare-up, or if you are infected with scabies. Scratching the affected area could result in a break in your skin which increases the risk of a bacterial infection.

Your immune system will detect a bite, sting, or other irritation and its response is to send inflammatory substances to subdue the threat so it cannot spread. It is next to impossible to ignore an itch so the best solution is to gently rub the area for a sense of satisfaction and apply Eurax HC as soon as possible.

Relieve the Itching and Kill the Mites

The two active ingredients of Eurax HC are Hydrocortisone and Crotamiton. When applied as directed, Hydrocortisone is absorbed into your skin cells and works to stop the release of certain chemicals that cause inflammation by widening blood vessels which results in redness, swelling, and itching. By interfering with this process, your symptoms are reduced and healing can begin.

If scabies are the source of your itching and redness, then Crotamiton will also help to calm your symptoms as well as kill the mites. For this treatment, you will need to apply a thin layer of Eurax HC cream from head to toe to be certain all mites will be affected. The exact mechanism involved with how Crotamiton kills the mites is not fully understood yet.

Conditions Treated by Eurax HC

Scabies is an itchy and very contagious skin disease that is spread through close skin-to-skin contact. Sarcoptes scabiei is a tiny mite that requires a human host to survive and lay eggs. Mites prefer night time to do their wandering as the females look for a location for a permanent burrow. These small eight-legged parasites burrow into your skin and will lay 2-3 eggs per day.

The burrows are visible to the naked eye and appear as a grey or flesh colored tiny, squiggly line. Once you have been treated to kill the mites, your skin can still be quite itchy as your immune system is alerted to the dead mites that remain until they are absorbed. Several applications of Eurax HC cream may be required.

Before Eurax HC is Prescribed

Ask your doctor about the safety of using Eurax HC while you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. To determine if Eurax HC is right for you, tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements.

Eurax HC Precautions

Do not apply Eurax HC more than prescribed or longer than recommended, especially in children under three years of age. You should never share Eurax HC or any medications with others, even if they have similar symptoms. If you are also applying other topical products to your skin, ask your doctor how long to wait in between the applications.
