HC45 Hydrocortisone Cream
Advantages: Works fast, Works well, Prolonged effect, Small quantity needed
Disadvantages: Expensive and small tube
Along with Savlon, I'd say this is a necessary cream to have in your first aid kit and for around the house. It comes in very handy for things such as bites, stings, eczema and other irritation that may cause itching or an allergic skin reaction. I needed to use this recently as you do go fruit picking in the summer months and I got stung by nettles as well as itching from some of the forestry we went through!
The cream comes in a light box, which is an off-white colour. There is a Hc45 logo besides Hydrocortisone Cream on the front. Hydrocortisone is a hormone released by your adrenal glands (just above your kidneys) in response to stress. However due to it's effect on the immune system of suppressing it, you can receive the same effects through using this cream, which is why it's so effective. It suppresses the immune system upon application from any allergic reactions or even eczema.
The immune system isn't perfect and can sometimes do more harm than good, so this cream helps to keep it under control if it unnecessarily inflames your skin. The cream comes in a small 15ml tube and costs around £3.50, so it's quite expensive but hopefully you'll only have to use it occasionally.
The cream should be applied directly to the skin where you have itching, irritation or eczema. It gets to work within 5 minutes and will immediately relieve you of any pain or itching. It works really well and is very effective. The smell isn't wonderful but you get used to it. It's also pretty expensive but we have had our tube for pretty long. You only need to apply a tiny amount to most things such as stings.
The effects are quite long-lasting in the way the symptoms don't come back. Whether your immune system would have calmed down by then anyway, I don't know, but once I apply this cream, the pain never comes back! Made by the same fantastic E45 cream producers, it's a very reliable and effective cream that I'd recommend.
Thanks for reading!
Summary: A product well-worth keeping in your first aid kit
