Hydroderm contains the active ingredient Hydrocortisone Acetate. It belongs to a class of medications known as topical steroids. Topical steroids are applied to the skin to relieve skin conditions like swelling, redness, inflammation, itch and allergic reactions.
As hydrocortisone works by combating inflammation, it's not meant for blackheads or whiteheads, but rather for red, angry, underground pimples. It's also not something you should be using across your entire face; instead, it's best for targeted spots and used for only short amounts of time.
Absolutely, Hydrocortisone is compatible with topical preparations such as Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid, Sulfur, and Retinoids. It is also compatible with oral medications such as Isotretinoin (Acnotin, Oratane, Accutane)
