Soothing, long lasting relief! Maximum strength Corticool® 1% Hydrocortisone Gel is an instantly absorbing treatment for itchy skin from insect bites, eczema, psoriasis, cosmetics, jewelry, soaps, detergents, poison ivy or oak rash, and other minor skin irritations.

Product Description

Why does Corticool 1% Hydrocortisone Gel work so fast? Many hydrocortisone creams or ointments have an oily base that can cause the hydrocortisone to "float" on the skin's surface taking 30 minutes or longer to stop the itch. Corticool is a water-based gel that absorbs quickly allowing the hydrocortisone to easily penetrate the skin and start working right away. The maximum strength hydrocortisone gives long-lasting relief of itchy skin with the immediate cooling of a clear, non-staining, menthol gel.

Time to get rid of the old-school hydrocortisone cream and start using Corticool for the treatment of all of your summer and winter itches:

  • Insect bites and stings
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Skin irritation from cosmetics
  • Rashes from jewelry
  • Rashes from soaps and detergents
  • Poison ivy, oak or sumac rash
  • Rashes from pollen
  • Seborrheic dermatitis
  • Other minor skin irritations and rashes.

Corticool is available in a 1.5 oz. tube. If you can't find it in your local store you can ask your pharmacist to order it for you!

I have had seborrheic dermatitis around my ears and temples for almost 30 years.

The itch was so ungodly that I would tear at my scalp at night while asleep. Lately, as my hormones have begun to usher me into menopause, the itch has gotten worse, scales larger.

The dermatitis had started to creep down my sideburn area. Visual unless my hair is styled to cover it.

My husband bought me some Corticool gel at the advice of our Walgreens' Pharmacist yesterday.

WOW, itch-free for the first time since I can remember!

Dermatitis is receding within 5 hours.

I now use some ointment to ease the parched areas and to help shed the scales without scratching.

I am writing to let you know how happy and pleased I am with your product. My wife had a really bad itch in the middle of her back. The itch was so bad that she would be scratching her back all the time. We didn't know what caused this problem but I knew we had to do something.

We used Aloe Gel, didn't work. We also tryed Lanacane, didn't work. This is why I took the time to write this letter to let you know that your product really works. I tryed this because of the guarantee but I don't need a refund, I just need your company to continue to make Corticool. It really works. Best night sleep my wife and I have had in about 10 days. The product works as soon as it is applied.

Thank you. Your company saved my marriage.

This stuff is magical. It has been wonderful at stopping the itch of my many food allergy rashes. I now have one on my stomach which has been horrible, and corticool cools the itch and lessens the redness. This is the best product I have ever found for itching. Keep up the good work.

This stuff is AMAZING!! I had really inflamed and red eczema that itched so bad that I was almost in tears. I went to Fred's and got some Corticool gel for $5. I was thinking "this stuff better be good for $5 a tube," and let me tell you that it was VERY GOOD! It burned the first time i put it on, but it was all worth it. In maybe 3 or 4 days my eczema was almost completely gone! Not only was the itching gone, but the reddness was too! I can't thank Corticool gel enough!! Thank you so much!!


I have been living with an inherited eczema since I was quite young, 4-5 years old. So at 60, I have tried everything out there to calm down a rash or irritation. Including most RX's for such conditions. About 8 or 10 years back, I bought a tube of the corticool, to try out. I can't tell you the difference in just how good it works, compared to anything else I ever used.(most over the counter products would make me worse!) Almost immediately, you can see the difference, as redness & irritation just starts to disappear. It has been my choice product, since I first tried it. For Me, it even works better than most prescriptions I have used! Corticool used to be SO hard to get, I had to to online, and find it. Now, It is more available, thank goodness!. I don't have to worry about needing it, and not being able to find it! Now I don't worry about a rash becoming so bad I have to see dermatologist. It just doesn't happen if I treat it with the corticool. A convinced customer, webgal03
