Urgent ASAP [skin steroid needed]

I have a bad reaction to a body lotion. I know what will make it go away
a cream or ointment with cortisone.

But I don't know if I can by them off the shelf or do I need prescription? doctors here are very expensive!

Urgent I'm going tomorrow to the pharmacy.

I was given cortisone cream before for a breakout of dry skin on my nose, was given to me by a pharmacist and cost about 10.- so dont worry, no docs in this case

Re: Urgent ASAP [skin steroid needed]

I think anything with hydrocortisone will help you, I am not sure if you can get it without prescription, something tells me that now it might be possible. If not, call up a Medicins de garde, Vaud and they will tell you. You should be able to get a small dose of cortisone in the Urgences (ER), too.

If it is just a contact allergy reaction, it could go away if you wash with luke warm water and do not put anything on it, no crazy ointments they might push on you in the pharmacy, no homeopathy stuff. Lard works, too. Sorry, but it is true, pork lard, no salt, nothing.

Re: Urgent ASAP [skin steroid needed]

most or all of them are sold with prescription

I have an empty or almost empty cortisone cream
If I bring it up at the pharmacy will they give me the same cream with out prescription?
