Which peroxide?: Since I didn't know which peroxide you're using, I checked both benzoyl (http://www.drugs.com/cdi/benzoyl-peroxide-wash.html) & hydrogen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogen_peroxide). Luckily both appear to have no interaction w/hydrocortisone (http://www.drugs.com/mtm/hydrocortisone-topical.html). Always best to tell your docs about everything you use, whether prescription or over-the-counter.
