Ala-Cort (Hydrocortisone) is a prescription lotion used to treat symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, heat rash, itching of the genitals and anal region, insect bites, and stings. It also treats allergic reactions, skin irritation, and other skin problems. Hydrocortisone lotion reduces swelling, itching, and irritation associated with these conditions. It also treats low cortisol levels caused by adrenal gland diseases. The active ingredient in Ala-Cort is Hydrocortisone. Hydrocortisone belongs to the class of drugs called topical corticosteroids. It works by blocking the action of certain proteins that promote swelling and inflammation. As a result, Hydrocortisone reduces fibroblast proliferation, collagen deposition, and subsequent scar tissue formation.
