Pramox HC Cream Description

For many skin conditions that cause inflammation, pain, or itching, such as bug bites or stings, scrapes, mild sunburn, and eczema, your doctor can prescribe Pramox HC Cream. This is a combination topical medicine that contains 2 ingredients, Hydrocortisone Acetate (a corticosteroid), and Pramoxine Hydrochloride (an anesthetic). Together, Pramox HC Cream can provide lasting pain relief as it reduces painful inflammation and itching.

Reduce Inflammatory Chemicals and Block Pain for Relief

Once applied as directed, the corticosteroid will work to reduce the actions of your immune system that sends the signal there is a threat. By toning down this defensive action there are less inflammatory substances sent to the affected area which keeps down the redness, swelling and itching that inflammation can cause.

Then Pramoxine HCl works as a topical anesthetic by blocking sodium from entering nerve endings at or near the affected site that is injured. This action prevents the build-up of electric signals that pass along nerve fibers and tell your brain that you feel pain. Without the pain signal, your brain does not know you have been injured.

Conditions Treated by Pramox HC Cream

There is no cure for eczema, but there are treatments to help relieve the flare-ups that can occur. You should not use other topical corticosteroid creams or lotions if you are applying Pramox HC Cream as over-use or long-term use can cause a thinning of your skin. Always talk to your doctor first before applying other medicine on areas already being treated.

Pramox HC Cream can also reduce the pain and inflammation of running into poison oak, sumac, and ivy. The rash that develops is from coming into contact with the resin on the plants’ leaves, stems, flowers, and roots called urushiol. This oily substance remains active even after the plant dies.

Before Pramox HC Cream is Prescribed

Ask your doctor if there are risks to applying Pramox HC Cream while you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list all current OTC and Rx meds you take or use, including supplements and alternative medicine. Your doctor can determine if Pramox HC Cream (Hydrocortisone Acetate/Pramoxine HCl) is safe for you.

Pramox HC Cream Precautions

You should stop applying Pramox HC Cream and see your doctor if the treated area of skin appears to be infected. If symptoms do not improve after one week of using Pramox HC Cream, revisit your doctor to be certain everything is alright. Unless otherwise instructed by your doctor, covering, wrapping, or bandaging the treated area should be avoided as it can intensify the effects of Pramox HC Cream and cause a possible negative reaction.
