Hydrocortisone is usually used for treatment of skin infections, kindly speak to a doc before using it for era infections, please.

Take care, best wishes!

I do agree with Rajive hydrocortisone can have many uses and under supervision it can help solve a problem on the other hand if not used under the proper contolled avice of a physician it can lead to suppression of the immune system and cause the need for stronger antibiotics and sometimes they must be given for a greater period of time thats why its always best to have the doctor take a look at the area whether it be the ear or otherwise in order to be sure that you are getting the appropriate care. I wish you the best caringsonbj (Billy)
