Comment:
This ointment is wonderful. Since I have been using it not only has it removed the bumps from my skin but it also evened out the discoloration of my skin, and flakyness. Now I am more comfortable with wearing low hanging clothes on my back. Only downfall-can't discontinue use otherwise rash comes back.

I used this to treat eczema on my hands, applying several times daily for several weeks. I was disappointed that it wasn't more effective. I've gotten better results with OTC treatments that don't have side effects such as skin thinning.

My son is a 14 year old boy that suffers with exzema since his childhood. He has tried different medicationes, but this one is the best to treat those thick, bad areas in his body. Specially those areas where he has been scratching and bleeding and already had formed a crust.In just a day od the application the skin started to heal and itching stoped.

Comment:
I returned from Iraq with a skin rash in my ears. VA doctors perscribed two different types of drops which did not work. After a 22 months and a new doctor, I was prescribed Triamcinolone Acetonide Ointment. Within 24 hours the itching was gone and within 2 days it was like I had never had any skin condition at all.
