Stop: Topical hydrocortisone cream may help but if problem is severe talk to your doctor to get something more potent. Since generic is similar to brand based on only the active ingredient, the rest may be quite different. You must have become allergic to one or more of the ingredients in the makeup of the cream or have newly become sensitized to the active ingredient itself, brand or otherwise.
