My 11 month old daughter has been using Hydrocortisone 0.5% on her face to control excema occassionally. We are on vacation and it has flared up , and we don't have her cream with us. The local doctor has prescriber Metaz 0.1% Topical Corticosteroid, but we are unsure if this is the same thing and safe to use on her face?
