I had flaking dry skin on my eyelids. Daktarin helped the dryness but did not cure it.

The doctor prescribed clotrimazole and hydrocortisone cream twice a day for 7 days.

It was scary stuff and I was very careful to not use too much at a time, it did irritate the eyes if I put on too much.

That said, the reason I'm posting is after eight months of problems, two months with Daktarin, this cream dealt with the issue completely in a week and I am very happy.

Can you use hydrocortisone cream on your face?

It is NOT recommended to use hydrocortisone cream around the lips, mouth, or eyes because part of the medicine can be absorbed through the mucous membranes. Hydrocortisone is a steroid, which is a hormone. Used properly, it can have strong negative side effects; used improperly, those negative side effects can be far worse. As well, as a steroid, the medication can have effects on body function and organs. When steroidal medications are used as directed, the negative effects and effects on organs are more controlled than if the med is used improperly. For example, hydrocortisone cream is often prescribed to be applied directly to a limited area of skin, say, hives. But, the med could have serious side effects if lathered over large areas of skin. Hydrocortisone cream can also thin the skin where it is applied, and lead to other skin problems.
