How many ointments did you use?

Hello everyone, I would like to ask you some questions about the treatment of eczema in children and adolescents.

From my own experience, I have used and been prescribed dozens of different ointments and only one worked.
Is this also your experience or was it an instant success?

Hi!
Being a chronic illness, it's unlikely to be an instant success.. takes some time to figure out which cream, and regularly visit dermatologist to monitor skin and prescribe safe creams. Take care!

My brother had eczema growing up and we would slather E45 cream on him every day.

Sometimes the old ways are best.

elocon ointment for body ezcema and facial ezcema was eumovate ointment, which is very greasy a bit like vasline but seems to do its job to reduce redness and inflamed bubbled up skin but i noticed bumps or milia appear after usage after everything settled down.
