Uses

Pramoxine is an anesthetic used on the skin to relieve minor pain, itching, and discomfort. Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid that reduces redness, swelling, and itching. This combination medication is used to treat certain skin conditions such as eczema, rash, scrapes, insect bites, or minor burns. This combination product for the skin is available in different strengths and forms (such as creams, ointments, and gels). The type of medication used depends on the location of your condition and the type of skin problem being treated. Creams are the most often used form. Ointments may be better suited for dry areas and when a stronger effect or skin protection is desired. Gels may be more drying.

How to use hydrocortisone-pramoxine topical

Before applying the medication, clean the affected area with mild soap and water, rinse well, and pat dry. Gently rub a small amount of the medication into the affected area and surrounding skin in a thin layer as directed by your doctor, usually 3 to 4 times a day.

Wash hands immediately after use unless the area being treated includes the hands. Avoid getting the product in your eyes, nose, ears, or mouth. If the medication gets in these areas, rinse immediately with clean water.

Do not cover the area with waterproof bandages or plastic, apply heat, or use the product on large areas of the body unless directed to do so by your doctor. If used in the diaper area on an infant, do not use tight-fitting diapers or plastic pants. These may increase the risk of side effects.
