Difference between cortisone and hydra cortisone ? Can hydra cortisone creams be used regularly? Doing wonders to my skin!
It depends...: The two drugs are slightly different in that hydrocortisone is just a little more potent. However, both work similarly. As to using them regularly, the question becomes why the need for continued use. If you have a skin condition that is present whenever you do not use the cream, then it is a good idea to see your doctor about it so that it can be better assessed. There may be a more appropriate treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Used retin A (tretinoin) twice on penis head...skin burned, reddish and sore patches. applying Vaseline, moisturizer for 3 days. can I apply Betnovate ointment?
Stop: I have no idea why you want to put Retin A (tretinoin) on your penis head since there is no wrinkle there. If anything, try topical hydrocortisone for a few days to calm the inflammation down (I presume however that Betnovate is a brand of cortisone containing betamethasone . If so, it is ok to use it once a day for 3-4 days but no more). ...Read more
No: They are terrible actually. Nystatin is an antifungal medicine, but is not effective against ringworm. Triamcinolone is a topical steroid that will help you with your itch, but often makes it easier for the fungus to grow and often allows it to spread more deeply into the skin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Helps with itching: Triamcinolone=steroid is sometime combined with antifungal cream to help with severe itching/irritation (inflammation). Steroid itself does not treat the ringworm. Lamisil, lotrimin, or tinactin (tolnaftate) are available otc and are often adequate to treat commom skin fungal/ringworm infections on skin (not beard/scalp areas). If not better in about 2 wks, consult doc for proper diagnosis/treatment. Good luck. ...Read more
Is nystatin and triamcinolone acetonide safe to use in my face for seb dermatitis? It's 1% strength.
No (very short!): The concentration of triamcinolone (tac) is too high. For the face, concentrations should be 0.025 or less of tac. Problems that occur if you use this high concentration is thinning of the skin and steroid acne. Usually no higher that 2.5% (hc)hydrocortisone (or equivalent) is recommended on the face. The otc hc cream is actually only 0.1%. You will need to see your doc for a prescription. ...Read more

On hypertrophic scarring on lower eyelid, is using betamethasone valerate and a steroid shot okay?
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?
Apply cool...: ...Washcloths often, and take Ibuprofen to decrease the pain and inflammation. If you burn after applying a sunscreen, you are not using one that is strong enough, or applying it often enough. Breakouts are usually from the vehicle. So choose a spray or thin lotion with a high spf (55 or higher) and apply it often while you are in the sun. ...Read more
