    My son, now 15 months, has had problems with eczema since he was born. Extremely bad patches on his cheeks that would often begin to bleed because he would scratch them so much. We tried using several non-rx creams from Aveno to Aquaphor. Then we tried a prescrptiong steroid. Nothing seemed to work. Elidel cleared his face up after the first 3 days of use. Now we use it only as it flares up.

    My daughter, age 13, has had issues with her skin since she was very little. We started using the Elidel and were very pleased with the results. I heard and read the results regarding cancer and we stopped using it. I had become very concerned. Nothing else seemed to work nearly as well as Elidel. Now, when the breakouts are bad we apply a very small amount to only the affected area and it is enou ... Show Full Comment
