What is Mildison Lipocream?
Mildison Lipocream contains the active ingredient hydrocortisone, which is a type of medicine called a topical corticosteroid. Hydrocortisone calms the skin and reduces reactions such as itching, redness and scaling. Mildison Lipocream can be ordered online via a Dokteronline.com partner pharmacy. It is a prescription-only medicine that can be obtained through an online consultation.
What is Mildison Lipocream used for?
Corticosteroids are medicines used for reducing inflammation. Inflammation of the skin happens as a result of allergy or irritation of the skin, and is characterised by itching, swelling, redness, soreness and/or scaling. Mildison Lipocream is used for skin inflammation due to allergies or irritants, eczema or reactions to insect bites. The active ingredient hydrocortisone is a moderately potent topical corticosteroid. When hydrocortisone is applied to the skin it works by acting inside the cells to decrease the release of inflammatory substances. This reduces swelling, redness and itching.
