Analpram HC lotion is a topical medication used to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and insect bites. It combines hydrocortisone acetate 2.5% and pramoxine HCl 1% in a topical formulation.
Hydrocortisone is a potent corticosteroid, which works by reducing inflammation and itching in the affected area. Pramoxine, on the other hand, is a topical anesthetic that works by numbing the skin and reducing pain and discomfort in the affected area. Together, these two ingredients work to treat a wide range of conditions and symptoms, including inflammation, itching, redness, pain, and discomfort associated with certain skin conditions.
Use and Dosage
Analpram HC Lotion should be used exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider. It is usually applied to the affected area of the skin 3-4 times per day, or as directed. Do not apply more of the medication or use it more often than prescribed.
To use Analpram HC Lotion, follow these instructions:
- Clean and dry the affected area of the skin before applying the lotion.

Avoid getting the product in your eyes, nose, ears, or mouth. If it gets into these areas, rinse immediately with clean water. Do not cover the area with waterproof bandages or plastic, apply heat, or use the product on large areas of the body unless directed to do so by your doctor.
