Hydrocortisone which is a type of medicine called a topical corticosteroid.

Mepyramine Maleate, which is a type of medicine called an antihistamine.

Mepyramine works by preventing the actions of histamine - a compound produced by the body when it reacts to a foreign substance, such as venom from insect bites or stings (these are known as allergens).

As a result of insect bites or stings, or contact with stinging nettles, histamine causes a chain reaction that results in inflammation (redness, swelling and itching) of the skin. Mepyramine blocks histamine receptors and so stops this chain reaction in the skin.
