Hydrocortisone is the same as the natural corticosteroid, cortisol, and is used to decrease inflammation in the skin. If corticosteroids are used long-term, on large areas of skin, raw skin, skin folds, or under airtight dressings (including nappies) they are absorbed into the body more.
This increases the risk of local side effects such as skin thinning, and those on other parts of the body, such as a decrease in the production of natural hormones by the adrenal glands. For this reason, continuous, long-term use of this medicine should be avoided wherever possible, particularly in children and on large areas of skin.
Why use a steroid when you can go natural?
We made this creme from raw Ghanaian Shea Butter, coconut oil, a dash of finely ground but smooth natural oatmeal flour to dry up the rash and a droplet of tea tree antiseptic/ anti fungal serum. The result is a Mother Nature approved salve that will:
1. Dry up that pesky rash
2. Soothe and heal your little one’s bum
3. Offer a protective barrier of moisture
4. Offer antiseptic properties with no harmful chemicals
This creme is also suitable for those suffering from itchy eczema, bug bites and poison ivy. I used this after suffering from insect bites while pulling up weeds in my garden. The creme dissolves very easily into your skin and provides relief from itching. Doesn’t your baby, and you, deserve an all-natural salve that has no harsh chemicals or additives? Grab one today at:
