It's toxic to some.: People who have no reason to use it-better not use it. It is for scabies and lice.

Not very helpful: Topical steroids are not very effective for hives due to the mechanism involved. Hives move around, so you will just end up chasing them with the cream.

Other good active ingredients are zinc pyrithione, selenium sulfide, and salicylic acid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
