Locoid Lipocream is a medication that is used to treat various skin conditions, such as eczema, dermatitis, allergies, and rash. It contains the active ingredient hydrocortisone butyrate, which helps reduce swelling and inflammation in the skin.

The cream is applied topically and is suitable for use in adults, children, and infants above 3 months of age.

Hydrocortisone butyrate is a corticosteroid, which is a type of medication that helps reduce inflammation and itching. It works by suppressing the immune response in the skin, thereby reducing redness, swelling, and itching associated with inflammatory skin conditions.
