As is common with most medical treatments, there are situations in which Hydrocortisone 1% cream should be used cautiously or not at all. If you have a skin infection (such as impetigo, herpes simplex, or a fungal infection) and if you have reacted to other steroid preparations before, Hydrocortisone 1% is not recommended. It’s advised you don’t use this cream on the face or around the anal or genital areas unless told to do so by your doctor. You shouldn’t use this treatment if you have an allergy to any of the active or inactive ingredients.
Disclaimer: I only recommend using high-quality therapeutic-grade Young Living Essential Oils for ingestion. These are not everyday oils that you can find at the store. This is also what has worked for me and my family, this is in no way to take away from what is suggested by your doctor. I am not a doctor and I am not promising any healing or medicinal advice. I just love therapeutic oils and love sharing how we use them at home. These statements have not been evaluated by the food and drug administration. Contains Affiliate links.
