What is Ala-Cort Used for?

Ala-Cort (Hydrocortisone) is a prescription lotion used to treat symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, heat rash, itching of the genitals and anal region, insect bites, and stings. Hydrocortisone lotion reduces swelling, itching, and irritation associated with these conditions. It also treats low cortisol levels caused by adrenal gland diseases. The active ingredient in Ala-Cort is Hydrocortisone. Hydrocortisone belongs to the class of drugs called topical corticosteroids. It works by blocking the action of certain proteins that promote swelling and inflammation. As a result, Hydrocortisone reduces fibroblast proliferation, collagen deposition, and subsequent scar tissue formation.

Do not apply more or less of it or more often than your doctor prescribes. Do not apply it to other areas of your body or use it to treat different skin conditions unless directed by your doctor. Do not bandage the treated area unless your doctor tells you you should. If you have psoriasis, your doctor may recommend an occlusive dressing. You should inform your doctor if there is no improvement in your symptoms after two weeks of regular use of Hydrocortisone lotion.
