Avoid giving your baby Hydrocortisone or any other form of steroid creams even they might give temporarily relieve.They seem harmless or that’s what you think. On the contrary, they are potentially dangerous.
The issue with using creams like Hydrocortisone is that it contains steroids. If it is constantly used on a baby’s skin, it can have damaging effects on the baby’s skin. Baby’s skin is too soft and too fragile for a strong cream. In fact, dermatologists also do not recommend long term usage for adults. For this reason, steroid cream shouldn’t be used constantly, and continually for a long period of time to treat dry skin or eczema for babies and young children.
