Rated 1 out of 5��by Louise Steroid Creams Can Cause Addiction
Creams like this offer a "quick fix" without addressing the underlying problem.
Basically, it's like painting over the cracks in a wall. The eczema WILL come back, because the cause has not been treated.
I foolishly put hydrocortisone cream on my FACE for 15 years and am now suffering from a terrible condition related to steroid rebound.
Extreme caution needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 This stuff cured my three-year eczema in a month.
A fews years ago skin on my hands started breaking out in tiny fluid-filled bumps for no reason, and nothing I tried could get rid of the itch! It got so bad my skin cracked into fissures, and scabs from scratching my skin bloody. It would get so bad sometimes at night I'd run my hands under hot water just to let the pain stop the itch so I could sleep, which of course made it worse in the long run but I was desperate. Finally I read a review for this stuff on Amazon and bought some at the Target. I remember saying to my husband 'here goes nothing' when I put it on and then within FIFTEEN MINUTES the itching was GONE. I couldn't believe it! So after going through 4-5 tubes of this stuff a week for about a month, and putting 25,000 IU vitamin E oil on with cotton gloves at night to heal the cracks in my skin, my eczema was almost completely gone. Now six months later my hands look perfect. You'd never even know I had eczema, and I can wear my wedding rings again! Whenever I get an attack of those bumps I put on this stuff and they disappear within half an hour. If you have eczema TRY THIS STUFF.

Out of all of the products I have tried to help with the eczema on my hands, nothing had worked. It was embarrassing for people to see my hands and it was very painful. I was about to give up hope when I went to the local store determined to find something different to try. I found this....Less than 2 hours after I applied it the redness and swelling had gone down. They were not itching and for the first time in months my hands looked somewhat like I had remembered. There was no burning, no pain what so ever. My hands haven't itched at all! It's amazing! Please don't ever stop making this product, you are lifesavers. Thank you!

The results after using this product made me stop itching my skin slowly and slowly. Before I even heard of this product, all the expensive stuff like Clinique did not do anything for my darkened itchy skin. Definitely recommend this!

Rated 5 out of 5��by AveenosUnofficialSalesRep I've recommended to my 4 coworkers already!
My coworkers and I have pimples and once in a while some of them grow to a huge size (especially when we try squeezing it). So we end up with big bumps on our face. I started using this product 'Aveeno Active Naturals 1% Hydrocortizone' on stubborn bumps/pimples on my face and voila! It did the job of calming down the skin and making the pimple go down and disappear altogether. So, one time, my coworker came with a huge pimple/bump on the bridge of her nose and people made fun of her so I recommended this product and even bought one for her and it worked again. Now the word has spread amongst my other co-workers and now 3 more have asked me to buy for them because it seems that Targets near their homes don't carry it. Strange!

Rated 5 out of 5��by Bee Repaired and Saved my skin!
Being not so smart, I went in a tanning bed and my chest was burned so badly the skin blistered and I developed "solar dermatitis". This left creases in my skin as well as the itchy and painful rash. It was a hard lesson to learn. I was using a regular OTC cortison cream and it wasn't working at all. I purchased this and within two days, I had my skin back to normal. This really worked a miracle on my skin. I love Aveeno products, they always work as promised. This was a great find! (and never again on the tanning!)
