Every couple of years in the autumn season I develop what is called Pompholyx AKA Dyshidrotic Eczema on my hands. It's basically this extremely painful and ugly condition where it looks like eczema x100. The affected areas begin to swell and my ring finger and my pinkie were bigger than my thumb! Due to the swelling, they also did not move or function normally. The skin becomes incredibly dry, cracks and eventually bleeds. I have tried absolutely everything but steriods (which I do not use for a reason!) to heal the dermatitis. Nothing worked. I became so paranoid about the condition of my hands I barely even wanted to go out into the public. THEN, on some random forum online someone mentioned they achieved great results with the Aveeno 1% Hydrocortisone. I quickly rushed out to the drugstore and that very same night, my hands were already 50% healed! The ointment stings a little on broken skin, but that didn't bother me one bit. It's been three days since I've been using it and the dead, sick skin is gently coming off revealing clean, healthy beautiful me! It's seriously a miracle product!!

Comments about Aveeno Maximum Strength Anti-Itch Cream, 1% Hydrocortisone, 1 oz:

I used this product mixed with my Aveeno Moisturizing Eczema Cream twice a day for a week and already my eczema cleared, my skin is smoother, and it even cleared a few old pimples/scars. Its a great product to keep around being that its gentle and can be used for bites, cuts, burns, you name it.

        I have a secret and I am going to share it with you. I am not prone to acne at all. But I've been using this anti itch cream as a facial moisturizer for years. It is by far the only cream that shrinks my facial pores to near invisible. No exaggeration. Just give it a try, you too should see instantaneous results. I buy this in bulk just so that I will always have it on hand, for my face. It also works extremely well for the occasional skin dermatitis.

                  I truly love all Aveeno products. Never knew they had hydrocortisone cream. Luckily it is FSA covered through my work. Bought it just to have around and I'm glad I did. My husband is a mechanic and sometimes he reacts from all the harsh cleaners and things he uses not only at work but to wash up from work. Just recently our area (Oregon) is having a terrible time with mosquitos and both my husband and stepdaughter had bad reactions to bites. Out came the Aveeno. It is working well on the bites. Tonight I am going to buy some more Aveeno products for them.

                    I've suffered from moderate to severe eczema on my hands off and on for the past 15 years. I've tried traditional steroid creams prescribed by physicians, chinese medicine, food remedies (e.g., apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, flax seed oil) to combat the horrible symptoms of this disease. I always go back to Aveeno 1% Hydrocortisone - it provides quick and gentle relief, has moisturizing and nourishing qualities that other hydrocortisone creams lack, and doesn't thin my skin. On Friday, I had numerous red, inflamed, blistery, and weepy patches on my hands and both wrists. It's now Sunday morning and both hands and wrists are about 80% clear. I use the product twice a day (I've found overnight use to be most helpful; it gives the cream a chance to work its magic over a longer period).

                      This is the only hydrocortisone cream that I use on my face or neck because it is much less heavy than the other brands - but it still moisturizes. It also blends just fine with with my sensitive skin sunscreen and makeup, and it has no fragrance. I can tolerate SOME fragrances, but if possible I just try to avoid them. For itches or irritations on the rest of my body I do use the heavier creams.
