In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.
Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. We are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries as quickly as possible. Unfortunately it is currently taking a little longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow 2-3 working days for shipment.
Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
If you have symptoms of coronavirus stay at home and self-isolate for 10 days.

Hydrocortisone creams are the most common form of hydrocortisone product available. Click the link to see our full range.
As ointments are thicker and heavier than creams, a hydrocortisone ointment can be helpful when contact with the affected area is required for a lengthy period of time.
A hydrocortisone suppository is designed to deliver soothing treatment to the affected area for an extended period of time.
A hydrocortisone spray is particularly useful if the affected area is at risk of infection or further irritation if touched directly.
Daktacort HC and Canesten HC are strong hydrocortisone creams with an added antifungal for inflamed fungal conditions such as athlete's foot and sweat rash. Otherwise, HC45 and Lanacort are the strongest hydrocortisone creams available without a prescription. Eurax and Dermacort have a lower concentration of hydrocortisone. Stronger HC creams are available only on prescription.
In addition, hydrocortisone is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers unless under medical supervision.
