WESTCORT CREAM (HYDROCORTISONE VALERATE)

Westcort Cream Description

For effective relief from the swelling, itching and inflammation of eczema, psoriasis, bug bites and stings, and other skin dermatoses, ask your doctor about a prescription for Westcort Cream or Hydrocortisone Valerate generic. The cream formulation spreads easily and provides hydration for dry, flaky areas without feeling too heavy. Westcort cream acts fast because it is absorbed quickly, reducing the risk of an infection from scratching the affected skin areas and causing a lesion or abrasion where bacteria can enter. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Westcort Cream Works

Hydrocortisone Valerate, the active ingredient of Westcort Cream helps add to the level of your own steroid hormone called cortisol that decreases inflammation by inhibiting your immune system’s activity. Your immune response to any threat is to signal chemicals in your body to head to the site of the injury which causes inflammation. Westcort Cream also blocks the release of histamine from mast cells and narrows blood vessels which will relieve the itching, redness, and swelling. Westcort Cream is not a cure for eczema or psoriasis, but it relieves the symptoms effectively during a flare-up.

About Eczema and Psoriasis

Recent research has now pointed to structural defects in the outer most layer of your skin, called the epidermis, as the reason for eczema. Due to its impaired function as a barrier, your skin is more permeable to allergens and antigens, including soaps, perfumes, certain metals, and pet proteins from their saliva that your immune system believes to be an invasion or threat to do harm.

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease where T cells are put into action to protect your body from infection and disease, except you do not have either of these. As the T cells race to help you, your skin cell growth is increased while the dead skin cells on the epidermis have not sloughed off yet. This causes a buildup of cells that form a red, scaly patch on your skin. This is a long term skin condition that can worsen, improve, or even clear up for years.

Before Westcort Cream is Prescribed

Talk to your doctor about the use of Westcort Cream if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have as well as non-prescription medicines or Rx drugs you are taking, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements so your doctor can determine if you will benefit when you buy Westcort Cream to be applied as directed.

Proper Use of Westcort Cream

Do not apply dressings or bandaging to the treated areas or use it over a large area of your body as it may increase your risk for side effects. If there is no improvement in your condition after 14 days, see your doctor for further instructions. You should not share Westcort Cream with others, including children, without talking to your doctor.
