INTRODUCTION

CUTISOFT contains Hydrocortisone acetate which belongs to the group of medicines called topical corticosteroids. It is used for treating various inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, including intertrigo (irritation between skin folds), prurigo nodularis (a long-term skin condition where very itchy lumps appear), neurodermatoses (a long-term skin condition where itchy skin becomes thick due to scratching), non-infective nappy rash, insect bite reactions or otitis externa (inflammation of the external ear).

Hydrocortisone works by blocking the synthesis of various chemical messengers and inflammatory mediators which are responsible for causing skin inflammation (redness and swelling) and allergies. CUTISOFT is meant for external use only. Avoid contact of this medicine with your eyes, ears, nose, mouth and other mucous membranes. If contact happens, rinse it off thoroughly with water.

Avoid smoking or going near naked flames while applying this medicine, as it may increase the risk of severe burns. Fabrics that have been in contact with this medicine such as clothing, bedding or dressings, burns more easily and therefore should be kept safely. This medicine is generally safe and well tolerated. However, if you experience any application site reactions such as burning, itching or irritation contact your doctor.

Do not apply this medicine if you have any other bacterial or viral skin infections. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding before applying this medicine. Your doctor will decide whether you can use this medicine or not depending upon your condition. Take special care for infants and kids using this medicine to treat their nappy rash, which can be covered for long periods. This medicine should be applied with caution in children and adolescents under 18 years of age. Consult your doctor before application.
