Is Hydrocortisone Acetate cream good for external and internal hemorrhoids?
Is Hydrocortisone Acetate cream good for external and internal hemorrhoids? Asked by Margarett Kurr 1 year ago.

Hi there. It is quite rare to get internal hemorrhoids as due to strain, the membranes that cause the hemorrhoids is pushed out. The hydrocortisone is fine to use externally, but there is another oinment called Proctosedyl that works great. It is usually applied 2ct a day (externally) and has an anesthetic reaction so that the pain of the hemorrhoids is not felt. It also shrinks the hemorrhoids. I do not know if you can get it in your country, but here in NZ we have it, and it is highly recommended by doctors - and it does work. Answered by Clair Rushia 1 year ago.

I am doing some research on prenatal stress and I am having a hard time find some things out. Cortisol is secreted in response to stress. So increase in cortisol concentration will increase stress. (CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG) I am trying to look for what exactly hydrocortisone acetate (HCA) does. I think it reduces cortisol, but I'm not sure. Prenatal stress then affects the piglets psychologically and physically (this I know). Basically need help looking up relations of cortisol and stress, relation of hydrocortisone acetate and cortisol, and how hydrocortisone acetate works. It'll be great if anyone can give me some sites. Answered by Kathi Schwenzer 1 year ago.

Yes, and er, not exactly. I will explain. Cortisol is not an easy hormone. Increased cortisol is called hypercortisolism, or Cushing's syndrome (or disease, if the source is pituitary). Cortisol raises naturally and has a natural rise and fall every day - called the diurnal rhythm. It wakes you up in the morning and puts you in bed at night if all is well. During times of stress, ACTH is secreted by the pituitary and more cortisol is released. Adrenaline is also released - both are in the adrenals. Actually a lot of hormones are secreted. In any case, if the stress is short lived, the cortisol should just be pretty short lived. In the case where stress is longer, such as pregnancy or illness, cortisol is raised to deal with it. It is, as long the cortisol stays within certain limits and timelines, a good thing, so that the body can reduce inflammation, keep blood pressure up, etc. If cortisol is raised too much, too long, than the body basically starts to destroy itself. It can lead to minor issues like cataracts up to major issues like depression, bone loss and death. Too much can put stress on the body. As for hydrocrotisone acetate, that is a form of corticosteroid. Taking it will not lower your cortisol but raise it. There are many forms of corticosteroids known simply as steroids such as hydrocortisone and prednisone and dexamethasone - they mainly differ in how long they last and when they kick in as well as how close they are to what the body makes. HCA is rather uncommon since it has a short life. Taking any corticosteroid has risks - if you take more than your adrenals make which is roughly 20mg of HC, then the adrenals can go on vacation - they are lazy things and takes a while to wake them up. A raise in cortisol during pregnancy is very normal. The stretch marks that are purple are a sign of this - that is a sign of Cushing's syndrome and pretty much the only time purple or colored stretch marks happen is when steroids are involved (naturally or not). I hope this helps. Answered by Shantel Chanthaumlsa 1 year ago.

My heart goes out to u girl....i havent been in ur shoes so i wudnt understand how the social phobia gets under ur skin..but i do know that its difficult to socialize with a group of friends instead of just 1 friend (some ppl may differ with that). U'v just got to pay more attention to whats being said in normal conversations instead of thinking insecure thoughts cuz thats part of where the "quiet mouse" character stems from. So just refocus ur attention in their presence. Be more aware of ur external and ignore ur internal for a while. Hope that helps short-term.

Answered by Neil Bondre 1 year ago.

Side effects are just possibilities -- hydrocortisone is very safe, it's been around for many years. The reason those side effects are on there is because it's a type of steroid. It'll definitely help with the itching, and won't hurt your face. Answered by Kitty Fitzhenry 1 year ago.

Is Pramoxine hydrochloride the same as hydrocortisone acetate?
I used hydrocortisone for relief of some eczema around my mouth and it worked fine. I was wondering if Pramoxine hydrochloride is the same thing? I did some searching and they both show up together. Asked by Page Radilla 1 year ago.

No. Pramoxine is a local anesthetic (numbs area). Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid (reduces inflammation). Both are useful in itch creams. Pramoxine is similar to lidocaine. Ultimately, they are used together in a synergistic manner to achieve itch relief in topical medications. Answered by Eva Lyberger 1 year ago.

Can someone rank the following from most hydrophilic to hydrophobic:?
hydrocortisone, hydrocortisone acetate, hydrocortisone proprionate, testosterone, testosterone proprionate, triamcolone Asked by Leonila Mazzillo 1 year ago.

Hydrophobic compounds contain non-polar atoms ( like alkyl groups). Hydrophilic compounds contain polar groups, like alcohol functionality. Use this as a basis for detemining order. From 1) being most hydrophilic to 6) being least hydrophilic the order would be (excluding triamcolone, which I don't know the structure thereof): 1) 3 alcohols, 2 carbonyls (ketone) - hydrocortisone (HC) 2) 2 alcohols, 2 ketones, 1 2 carbon ester - HC acetate 3) 2 alcohols, 2 ketones, 1 3 carbon ester - HC propionate 4) 1 alcohol, 1 ketone - testosterone (T) 5) 0 alcohol, 1 ketone, 1 3 carbon ester - T propionate Did you mean triamcinolone? This molecule has: 2 alcohols, 2 ketones, acetal, and Fluorene. It would probably fit between 1) and 2). Answered by Karima Stormo 1 year ago.

My doctor told me to put hydrocortisone cream on surgical scar tissue I have on my ear and at the store i found something (cheaper) that said it contained "hydrocortisone acetate 1.0% (equivalent to hydrocortisone 1.0%)". When I called my doctor to ask him if it was alright he said it wasn't the same thing, but I don't know if he even knew what I was talking about. So is it really different at all, since the product container said they are equivalent? Answered by Sommer Neiper 1 year ago.

It's the same thing (at least, as far as I know--you may have to ask him to explain, as it's possible he knows something that I don't about the difference). The important ingredient is the hydrocortisone. It comes in various different strengths from 0.1% to 2.5%. The larger percent ones are prescription only. I have a feeling though, that he may have misunderstood what you said. Answered by Luis Pasquel 1 year ago.

Answered by Yuette Brotherton 1 year ago.

Side effects are just possibilities -- hydrocortisone is very safe, it's been around for many years. The reason those side effects are on there is because it's a type of steroid. It'll definitely help with the itching, and won't hurt your face. Answered by Aurea Jetter 1 year ago.

Is Pramoxine hydrochloride the same as hydrocortisone acetate?
I used hydrocortisone for relief of some eczema around my mouth and it worked fine. I was wondering if Pramoxine hydrochloride is the same thing? I did some searching and they both show up together. Asked by Claude Stam 1 year ago.

No. Pramoxine is a local anesthetic (numbs area). Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid (reduces inflammation). Both are useful in itch creams. Pramoxine is similar to lidocaine. Ultimately, they are used together in a synergistic manner to achieve itch relief in topical medications. Answered by Tamela Eichner 1 year ago.

Can someone rank the following from most hydrophilic to hydrophobic:?
hydrocortisone, hydrocortisone acetate, hydrocortisone proprionate, testosterone, testosterone proprionate, triamcolone Asked by Lorina Backe 1 year ago.

Hydrophobic compounds contain non-polar atoms ( like alkyl groups). Hydrophilic compounds contain polar groups, like alcohol functionality. Use this as a basis for detemining order. From 1) being most hydrophilic to 6) being least hydrophilic the order would be (excluding triamcolone, which I don't know the structure thereof): 1) 3 alcohols, 2 carbonyls (ketone) - hydrocortisone (HC) 2) 2 alcohols, 2 ketones, 1 2 carbon ester - HC acetate 3) 2 alcohols, 2 ketones, 1 3 carbon ester - HC propionate 4) 1 alcohol, 1 ketone - testosterone (T) 5) 0 alcohol, 1 ketone, 1 3 carbon ester - T propionate Did you mean triamcinolone? This molecule has: 2 alcohols, 2 ketones, acetal, and Fluorene. It would probably fit between 1) and 2). Answered by Cris Barbie 1 year ago.

My doctor told me to put hydrocortisone cream on surgical scar tissue I have on my ear and at the store i found something (cheaper) that said it contained "hydrocortisone acetate 1.0% (equivalent to hydrocortisone 1.0%)". When I called my doctor to ask him if it was alright he said it wasn't the same thing, but I don't know if he even knew what I was talking about. So is it really different at all, since the product container said they are equivalent? Answered by Vincenzo Lazarus 1 year ago.

It's the same thing (at least, as far as I know--you may have to ask him to explain, as it's possible he knows something that I don't about the difference). The important ingredient is the hydrocortisone. It comes in various different strengths from 0.1% to 2.5%. The larger percent ones are prescription only. I have a feeling though, that he may have misunderstood what you said. Answered by Corie Tuorto 1 year ago.
