This cream is amazing if you have dry patches. It's an absolute must-have, along with hemorrhoid cream for bags under your eyes. No, I'm not joking. That's an insider secret but shhhh! Don't tell anyone, because makeup companies want to sell you expensive creams for under your eyes. :PAnyway, as for hydrocortisone cream, I discovered how fantastic it is for dry patches when I googled exfoliation.I swear, no matter how much cream I put on my face, or how much I scrubbed, I could not get rid of these 2 small dry patches, one on the sides of my nose and a small one on my forehead. It made my foundation look absolutely horrible; I was getting so self-conscious because it seemed to be getting worse, no matter what I did to try to fix it or how much I tried to change my foundation, primers, etc.So now I go super easy on exfoliation because I have dry skin, and I use a tiny bit of this stuff as needed. Hopefully there's someone out there that can use this information to help them as it did me.

I use this for cystic acne that hasn't come to a head yet. It works great at reducing the size of the bumps and within a week the spots are usually gone and don't really leave much of a mark behind.

Never had eczema but suddenly developed a red patch. my research led me to Exederm from the drugstore. It worked with him one day. I was tempted to put it elsewhere on my face but read it since your skin so avoided my eyes. I highly recommend this product for Eczema.

For those who are using this on their spots, please don't - at least, not regularly. Regular use of hydrocortisone cream is known to thin the skin. I regularly have rosacea on my cheeks and occasionally suffer from contact dermatitis, something that's only reared it's ugly head in the last 6 to 9 months or so. I recently suffered my worst bout so far and had to work out what to treat it with without having my usual emergency products with me (SBC Propolis gel, Lavender gel, Avene Cicalfate and Elizabeth Arden Eight hour cream all work for me during mild to moderate 'episodes'). My face was bright red, inflamed, hot and itchy and because my eyes had puffed up and were deeply lined I looked about 15 years older - not a good look! For three days I used just E45 Itch Relief Cream which eased the itch, along with a daily antihistamine tablet and two ibuprofen to ease the inflammation. But it was only once I also started applying half a fingertip of 1% Hydrocortisone cream (to cover my entire face and top of neck - always use the smallest amount possible) that my skin turned a corner. I've been mixing the hydrocortisone with the E45 Itch Relief Cream to get the benefits of both, lower the hydrocortisone dosage slightly - I hate using any kind of medication unless absolutely necessary - and to make application easier as the hydrocortisone cream on its own is slightly thick. After two days of applying both creams twice a day I was able to remove most of my by-now very flaky skin with aqueous cream BP (another skin-thinner!) removed with a warm damp flannel. I've stopped the antihistamine and ibuprofen tablets altogether and should be able to return to my usual skincare regime tomorrow. Now I know what works for a severe outbreak I realise I should always carry these two creams in my toiletry bag and also ALWAYS do a patch test on my neck with any new skincare. Hope this helps other dermatitis sufferers - it's all fairly new to me!

A week ago I switched to the Vaseline Intesive Mositure cream for a face cream, upon reading rave reviews on here. Unfortunately for me, it broke me out incredibly bad - to a point I've never seen my skin react!I had small bumps all across my face- tzone, cheeks, jawline, forehead - you name it. I was trying to use acne medicine to keep these bumps down but nothing work. I asked a doctor friend of mine what he thought, and it was then I realized I was experiencing an allergic reaction, and not an acne breakout. He then told me to pick up a tube of this and take some benadryl. Within one day my skin started to heal incredibly much. This is the third day I've been putting this on my face, and it looks as if the allergic reaction never happened!!

I originally began using hydrocortisone cream because I have cats and if they accidentally scratch me or I scratch myself after petting my cats, my skin gets red, itchy, and ridiculous. So I keep this stuff around and after washing my hands thoroughly, I apply it to the affected area and it stops the itching instantly. Also, I recently read somewhere that hydrocortisone cream can be used on acne to take down the swelling. Sometimes I get the kind of pimples that are under the skin and just hurt to touch. When that happens, I apply some of this stuff maybe once a twice a day for a few days. It really reduces the swelling and pain, and since I don't feel the need to pop or pick at it to try to alleviate the pressure, it reduces the healing time too. I wouldn't apply this stuff all over your face for preventative measures as I've heard it can cause breakouts, but if a big pimple pops up and it hurts, I don't see the harm in trying this.

I use this on cystic acne. I don't use it if the zit already has a head on it. It sucks the inflammation out in a couple days. It's my miracle product, but I use it sparingly.

This product is great for rashes and eczema to clear up real fast. I must warn you though, I had a friend who had beautiful skin and I had remembered her telling me she used hydrocortisone on her face. So I decided I would try some as well and the first week my skin started to look amazing but please I warn you never ever use this on your face because after that week my face had looked destroyed. My skin looked uneven with red blotches. It also emphasized scars I had before and worst of all broke me out really bad! I have stopped using it in hopes that my skin will get back to it's normal state. It looks sooo bad right now and am ashamed. If you do want to use this for your face it works excellent for zits if you use as a spot treatment. I can almost guarantee you your zit will be almost gone the next day. Other then that never use this on your face it thins the skin and cause broken capillaries.

I had to use hydrocortisone prescribed by my doctor for an allergic reaction I had, so I used it for 6 days, and by then I had gotten a HUGE RAGING RED MONSTER CYST! The steroids in this will mess with your hormones so treat carefully and if you notice a breakout after this, then you will know where it came from. Just a warning.
