More about Hydrocortisone and Pramoxine topical

What is/are Hydrocortisone and Pramoxine topical?

Pramocaine (INN and BAN, also known as pramoxine or pramoxine HCI) is a topical anesthetic used as an antipruritic.

The popular itch creams Gold Bond and Calamine Lotion use pramocaine hydrochloride to numb sensitive skin, as does the pain relief variant of Neosporin and some formulations of Sarna. The hydrochloride salt form of pramocaine is water-soluble, and therefore more easily absorbed into the skin.

Medical uses

Topical anesthetics are used to relieve pain and itching caused by conditions such as sunburn or other minor burns, insect bites or stings, poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac, and minor cuts and scratches.[1] Pramocaine and dibucaine are also common ingredients in over the counter hemorrhoid preparations.
