Hi! I'm Dr. Bridget.

The closest thing you can get is Hydrocortisone 1% cream (as you have tried as Cortizone 10). You also have the option to order a prescription strength steroid without a prescription from a Canadian pharmacy (Eumovate cream [clobetasone]) if you are willing to wait a few days for the shipping. Let me know if you are interested in that and I can share the details.

Please feel free to ask further questions.
