Big Image
Generic Name: Lidocaine/Hydrocortisone Cream (L YE-doe-kane /hye-droe-KOR-ti-sone)

Treating pain, itching, soreness, and discomfort of the skin or mucous membranes due to certain conditions such as eczema, scratches, minor burns, insect bites, and hemorrhoids.

LidaMantle HC Cream is an anti-inflammatory and topical anesthetic combination. It works by preventing nerves from transmitting painful impulses to the brain and decreasing inflammation around the affected area.

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in LidaMantle HC Cream or to similar medications (eg, amide-type local anesthetics)
  • you have a tuberculous or fungal infection of the skin, a herpes simplex skin infection, or a skin infection following smallpox vaccination

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.
