Flea bites cause me a great deal of itching. I typically use a 'cool relief' 1% hydrocortisone gel for relief. But I tried CeraVe's Itch Relief Moisturizing Cream as I found regular CeraVe Moisturizing Cream to already offer some itch relief. From my experience, the Itch Relief version added no further itch relief at all. Meanwhile, a side effect when it's used on top of the hydrocortisone (which I don't recommend) is an odd interaction that is felt in the head, gradually growing to a headache. Don't do that. Conclusion: I experienced no added itch relief beyond regular CereVe Moisturizing Cream. I wouldn't bother buying it again, at least in my circumstances. I'd definitely avoid using it alongside any 'cool relief' form of hydrocortisone due to detrimental interaction.Read More Read Less
