In brief: Protopic Ointment

As an ointment (protopic), tacrolimus is used in the treatment of eczema, particularly atopic dermatitis.
It suppresses inflammation in a similar way to steroids, and is equally as effective as a mid-potency steroid. An important advantage of tacrolimus is that unlike steroids, it does not cause skin thinning (atrophy), or other steroid related side-effects. Yes, it can be used on the neck.
