Vanoxide-HC is a kit which contains two different ingredients that are combined by the user/pharmacist to become a topical lotion for acne and oily skin. The two active drugs contained in one of the ingredients are hydrocortisone and benzoyl peroxide. Hydrocortisone is a corticosteroid that acts to decrease the skin swelling that can occur with acne. Benzoyl peroxide works by reducing the amount of acne-causing bacteria. It also encourages the healing of pimples by causing the skin to dry and peel. Vanoxide Hc lotion is extremely expensive, costing around $300 for a 25g bottle (5%/0.5%). You can save a huge amount of money on your Vanoxide-HC prescription by using our savings cards. To receive these discounts, use the Optum Perks website or app to find the biggest discounts in your local area. You can easily download the discount code or receive it by SMS, and then take it the pharmacy to buy heavily discounted Vanoxide-HC.

Vanoxide-HC is used to treat acne and the oily skin and swelling associated it with it. The two main drugs in Vanoxide-HC are classified as a topical corticosteroid (hydrocortisone) and a keratolytic (benzoyl peroxide).
