Westcort (Hydrocortisone Valerate Topical) - Indications and Dosage



Westcort Ointment is a medium potency corticosteroid indicated for the relief of the inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid responsive dermatoses in adult patients.


Westcort Ointment should be applied to the affected area as a thin film two or three times daily depending on the severity of the condition.

As with other corticosteroids, therapy should be discontinued when control is achieved. If no improvement is seen within 2 weeks, reassessment of the diagnosis may be necessary.

Westcort Ointment should not be used with occlusive dressings unless directed by a physician. Westcort Ointment should not be applied in the diaper area if the patient requires diapers or plastic pants as these garments may constitute occlusive dressing.
