About Navicort 1%W/W Cream 10Gm

Navicort 1%W/W Cream 10Gm belongs to a class of drugs called corticosteroids used to provide relief from swelling, redness, itching, dryness, inflammation and discomfort of certain skin conditions such as dermatitis (itchy, swelling of the skin), eczema (itchy, cracked, swollen or rough skin) and insect bite reactions. The swelling of the skin occurs when an allergic reaction or skin irritation releases several substances in the skin that widens blood vessels and cause itching, redness, pain, and swelling in the irritated area.

Navicort 1%W/W Cream 10Gm contains Hydrocortisone, a steroid that works by acting inside skin cells and inhibiting the production of certain chemical messengers in the body that cause redness, itching, and swelling.
