Some Skin Conditions Hyderm Cream Will Treat

For flare-ups of eczema or psoriasis, ask your doctor about the short-term use of Hyderm Cream. This is a topical medication that contains Hydrocortisone Acetate that will provide relief from the itching, redness, and inflammation caused by insect bites or stings, poison ivy, sumac, or oak, certain allergic reactions to soaps, perfume, or jewellery, as well as helping to calm down eczema and psoriasis. There is no cure for eczema or psoriasis, but Hyderm Cream can provide relief from the symptoms they cause during a flare-up.

By Inhibiting Your Immune Response, Inflammatory Chemicals are Reduced

When applied as directed, Hyderm Cream will be absorbed into your skin cells and eventually into your bloodstream where it mimics the actions of cortisol, a natural corticosteroid produced by your adrenal glands. When you experience a flare-up of a skin condition or other reaction to something your immune system believes is a threat, chemicals that include cortisol are produced and travel to the site of the irritation and work to send the threat away or contain it from affecting other parts of your body by causing the inflammation. Increasing corticosteroid levels will inhibit the immune response so less inflammatory chemicals are produced and your itching and redness are reduced.

Conditions Treated by Hyderm Cream

When your skin has been damaged or traumatized by bites/stings or any other forms of dermatoses, your immune system is alerted. This entails the vascular tissue in your blood vessels charging in to stop and repair any damage. Your blood flow is increased and the threatened area is flooded with plasma proteins which cause the swelling and redness and your brain is sent a warning. As a chemical reaction to injury, prostaglandins are produced and travel to the affected area and cause inflammation as part of the healing process. Putting the brakes on this response with Hyderm Cream can ease your symptoms.

Before Hyderm Cream is Prescribed to You

Ask your doctor if Hyderm Cream is safe to apply if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Explain to your doctor other medical conditions and allergies you have and list any OTC and Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements, to determine if Hyderm Cream is safe for you to apply.

Hyderm Cream Precautions

Hyderm Cream or other topical corticosteroids should not be used for longer than 2-4 weeks as it can cause a decrease in your own cortisol levels or cause thinning of the treated skin areas. For eczema or psoriasis, apply Hyderm Cream only during flare-ups to reduce the redness, itching, and inflammation. You should not cover or bandage the treated area unless otherwise instructed as this may increase your risk of side effects. Keep Hyderm Cream and other medications out of children’s reach.
