Brief Answer: No, dont use hydrocortisone Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for using XXXXXXX 2.5% hydrocortisone is a steroid and should not be applied to infected area and also to the open wound. It is used for conditions such as allergic reactions, eczema, or psoriasis. For my patients with friction induced rash I advice to clean with running water, dry with cotton cloth and to apply betadine lotion to prevent any infection. So I advice the same to you. I hope this answered your query and is helpful for you. Feel free to ask if any related query and I will be glad to answer them. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well. Wish you a very happy life and good health. Regards

If I wanted to visit my doctor for a more thorough review, what type of doctor should I visit? A general practitioner or a dermatologist?
