Glycolycic soap: It depends what you are using them for. Glycolic acid can cause irritation to the skin and can cause the skin cells to shed faster. If you want to use Hydrocortisone to decrease this irritation it is not particularly a good idea. It would be better to decrease the dose and application frequency of the glycolic soap.

No.: It is not advisable to use triamcinolone (a steroid cream) on the face. Steroids are designed to be used as temporary anti-inflammatory agents on rashes.

I use sunscreen& either burn or breakout. Use fluticasone propionate cream, calamin lotion, lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream on sunburn? If not wants good to use?

Not good idea in gen: There are some very specific, and relatively less common, vaginal disorders which can be treated appropriately with hydrocortisone, but for more common feminine itching such as due to yeast infection, dryness, weather conditions, etc., Hydrocortisone is really not a good idea.
