What Is Texacort?

Texacort (hydrocortisone solution) is a topical corticosteroid used to relieve inflammatory and itching manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive skin conditions.

What Are Side Effects of Texacort?

Side effects of Texacort include:

Dosage for Texacort

Topical corticosteroids such as Texacort are generally applied to the affected area as a thin film three to four times daily depending on the severity of the condition. Occlusive dressings may be used for the management of psoriasis or recalcitrant conditions. If an infection develops, the use of occlusive dressings should be discontinued and appropriate antimicrobial therapy instituted.

Texacort In Children

Pediatric patients may demonstrate greater susceptibility to topical corticosteroid induced HPA axis suppression and Cushing's syndrome than mature patients because of a larger skin surface area to body weight ratio.

Administration of topical corticosteroids to children should be limited to the least amount compatible with an effective therapeutic regimen. Chronic corticosteroid therapy may interfere with the growth and development of children.

What Drugs, Substances, or Supplements Interact with Texacort?

Texacort may interact with other medicines.

Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use.

Texacort During Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant before using Texacort; it is unknown how it would affect a fetus. Drugs of this class should not be used extensively on pregnant patients, in large amounts, or for prolonged periods of time. It is unknown if topical administration of Texacort could result in sufficient systemic absorption to produce detectable amounts in breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
