    I have had cronic eczema since I was a baby and when Elidel came out my doctors decided to try it to see if it would help... and it definatly didn't. It just made it worse. It burned and did not help me at all. I would not suggest it to anyone with cronic eczema. Maybe it would work with people with mild ezcema

    Had allergic reaction to skin around the eye area. Dr. said I would "really like this" medication. Applied in evening. Significant burning on the eyelids. Awoke to the area being much worse -- swollen, angry red. Took twice as long to heal because of medication.

    Small irriating red bumps appeared mainly around my nostriles. This med makes the area feel "hot" when applied. Dosen't seem to work, the rash just re-appears somewhere else.

    My son has severe eczema and we use Elidel. Not only is it very expensive but we feel it doesn't work very good. It also burns his skin after applying it. For the cost of the small tube, I wish it would work better.
