I Have Nasty Eczema How Effective Is Elidel
Somewhat: Elidel (pimecrolimus) is an anti-inflammatory cream used to treat eczema. It works best on mild to moderate eczema and when chronic treatment is needed. For moderate to severe eczema, often a more potent topical steroid cream is used to get the rash under control before switching to the safer, but weaker elidel. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My eczema after cortisone has not gone fully...still bumps..I have been taking care of my skin as best as i can.Is there anything more effective.help.
Doc says I have facial eczema, prescribed elidel, (pimecrolimus) using it for 5 months. It is not helping. Red, itchy blotches appear daily. I don't think its eczema?
My daughter has what I think is eczema. She's picking at it and it's bleeding now. We tried many creams. Nothing is helping. Rx cream also not helping?
Triggers: First, it is important to determine what the trigger for her eczema is. If it is a food sensitivity, you may need to cut down the consumption of that trigger. If it is environmental, you would do the same. Giving her a really good multivitamin is also important to maintain her nutritional status optimally. Singulair (montelukast) is a good medicine for eczema and does even better with an antihistamine. ...Read more

Yes, but Expensive: Unlike most conventional moisturisers, physiogel contains ceramide and other physiological lipids that help replace moisture and repair the skin’s damaged lipid barriers.

I am having rhinitis since long time but recently developed skin allergy,itching,rashes. Gets better with anti histamines.what can be alternative cure?
See allergist: It appears that you may be having atopic dermatitis as well although most people usually develop skin problem first before rhinitis and even asthma (called the atopic march). However the rash from AD is not usually relieved with antihistamine and thus I wonder if you meant hives (swelling) instead of a rash. An allergy consult will likely be beneficial for you. ...Read more
I have seborrheic dermatitis and I'm using Physiogel A.I on my face, but I notice that is for dry skin, is there an alternative I can use?
Better Rx?: This isn't really the most targeted therapy for seborrheic dermatitis. You have a lot of choices. A salicylic acid face wash, or something containing ketoconazole, may be the most helpful. Your physician can guide you. Seborrheic dermatitis isn't curable but is very manageable. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have a baby with face eczema. I used desonide for a week, but the eczema is back. Is something else safer or better?
Frequent Vaseline: Eczema on the body and face is in most cases transient and doesn't leave life long scars in most babies. Eczema occurs due to the skin becoming dry. Some important things to do: 1. Apply vaseline/eczema ointments 4-6 times per day 2. Use luke warm water for baths 3. Don't put soaps in the water for bathing as it leaches fat from the skin. 4. Use small amounts of aveno baby wash/dove soap. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Chronic: Eczema is chronic and will recur. I recommend avoiding harsh soaps which will dry the skin, use aquaphor or vanicream to protect your baby's skin throughout the day and desonide to keep it controlled, preferably no more than 3 times a week. It gets better over time! also, eczema makes skin more susceptible to infections so if it persists, see your dr. ...Read more

I think I got ringworm from kid, but not sure. Is it safe to treat as if I did? Have ketoconazole, nystatin & triamcinolone actonide, which one best?
Ringworm: The source of ringworm fungus is generally irrelevant to its treatment. The location on the skin is very relevant. If it is on the scalp, it requires oral medication. Elsewhere, topical katoconazole is one of a number of effective medications. Triamcinolone does not have anti fungal properties and will not cure the infection. ...Read more
