Corticosteroids are medicines used for reducing inflammation.
Inflammation of the skin happens as a result of allergy or irritation of the skin, and is caused by the release of various substances that are important in the immune system. These substances cause blood vessels to widen and result in the irritated area becoming red, swollen, itchy and painful, such as is seen in dermatitis or eczema.
When it is applied to the skin it works by acting inside the cells to decrease the release of these inflammatory substances.
This reduces swelling, redness and itch.
