Hydrocortisone Acetate

Drug Info for hydrocortisone acetate

Rectal hydrocortisone is used along with other medications to treat proctitis (swelling in the rectum) and ulcerative colitis (a condition which causes swelling and sores in the lining of the large intestine and rectum). It is also used to relieve itching and swelling from hemorrhoids and other rectal problems. Hydrocortisone is in a class of medications called corticosteroids. It works by activating natural substances in the skin to reduce swelling, redness, and itching.

Anucort-HC is used to treat anal itching, hemorrhoids and pruritus. It is also used as part of the treatment for ulcerative colitis, proctitis, and other conditions, as prescribed by your doctor. Anucort-HC contains a steroid called hydrocortisone which works by reducing inflammation in those conditions. It is available as a cream.
