Safety tips: It is not known if Elidel (pimecrolimus) cream is safe to use for a long period of time (possible cancer?) do not use Elidel (pimecrolimus) cream continuously for a long time. Use Elidel (pimecrolimus) cream only on areas of your skin that have eczema. Do not use Elidel (pimecrolimus) cream on a child under 2 years old.
