    I have been using this generic Hydrocortisone cream, which is basically equivalent, it is far cheaper to purchase this at okdermo, Its great for short term use, but not for the long term for my atopic dermatitis, less effective if the rashes are leaking serous fluid/weeping – you need prescription-strength medication. I used it on my face because atopic dermatitis regularly crops up on there. It clears it up in a few days of use, but your eczema/AD rashes will almost come back in a matter of days if you’re complacent on treatment. Also because cortisone is not recommended on the face for long term treatment. I have noticed parts of my face have become softer than other parts of my skin, it’s a potential side effect if used long term, so be warned. Skin atrophy can happen with steroid weak as cortisone but requires months of use.

    This medicine is good and bad. It will treat almost all sorts of eczema, skin allergies, psoriasis, etc. The thing to note is that this medicine SHOULDN’T be used long term. If you use it over time your skin can thin. It might take 20 years but it could happen. You could also develop red skin syndrome. My advice is to use it when you need it and on areas that are not noticeable. I wouldn’t use it on the face for a prolonged time

    This is my preventative cream. I put this on problem areas daily: under the boobs, under the fat folds, between the “cheeks”… to prevent chafing and/or yeast infections that are provoked by sweat in the crevices. It is also my go-to for eczema outbreaks because it will usually “nip it in the bud” if I am diligent about applying it. AND, if I use it on my legs after shaving them, it will help prevent a lot of the itching that occurs whenever my legs are touched in any way. May I just say, “I really hate eczema”

    I have hemorrhoids as I suffer constipation due to my endometriosis and I have tried all kinds of products for them. Many disappear on their own but there is one in specific that makes me desperate. My boyfriend gave me this cream and although I was skeptical, I tried it and it’s magical. The second time I used it, it eased the burning and pain, on the third day all symptoms it has completely disappeared. I feel like I finally found the perfect product. Buying on okdermo my next cream.
