In brief: Mild topical steroid

Hydrocortisone acetate is a mild topical steroid good for treating mild eczema, itchy insect bites and contact dermatitis (think poison ivy).
It is generally available over the counter and good for treating mild problems, more severe issues may need a more potent topical steroids that are prescription only.
