Steroid Cream For Dermatitis

When do you need steroid cream for dermatitis?

If prevention and moisturising aren’t enough to manage symptoms, the next step in treatment is steroid cream. Weak versions of a mild steroid cream called hydrocortisone can be obtained from your pharmacist for use on certain parts of the body.

However, if you have used a weak steroid cream for at least a week without results, you may need a more potent cream such as betamethasone 0.1%. For this you can have a consultation with our pharmacist and if appropriate, the cream can be supplied as a private service.

Please contact us to get more information or book an appointment.
