Important Information about HC45 Cream
HC45 cream contains a steroid cream, and should only be used for short term use (maximum one week). Thin layers of HC45 cream must be applied only to the affected area, as steroids thin the skin. HC45 cream cannot be applied to infected, oozing skin or open wounds. If the condition does not improve or if it worsens after using HC45 cream, then treatment should be discontinued, and you should consult your doctor. HC45 cream must not be applied to the genital or facial regions.
