Acetic acid/Hydrocortisone is a naturally occurring corticosteroid generated by the adrenal glands. These Corticosteroids have powerful anti-inflammatory substances and are administered in many inflammatory situations such as colitis, asthma, bronchitis, allergies, ear infections, skin rashes and arthritis. Acetic acid/Hydrocortisone works by preventing tissues from reacting to inflammations. Acetic acid also alters the body"s reaction to certain body immune stimulation.
Hydrocortisone is a drug used in the treatment of a wide variety of inflammatory states, such as eczema, psoriasis, allergic reactions, dermatitis, and ulcerative colitis. The widespread use of hydrocortisone is due to the fact that it"s a natural hormone, mimicking many complex bodily responses. One of the principal responses is suppressing the body"s inflammatory processes.
Hydrocortisone is available in many different formulations such as oral tablets, intravenously, rectally, and topically. As a steroid preparation, there are numerous significant side effects such as acne, changes in skin color, and weight gain. Patients may also experience disturbed heartbeats, insomnia, and an appearance of facial swelling.
