    I began getting eczma skin irritations around my eyes and on my temples. I tried several over the counter meds with no success. My skin was red, very itchy and became quite noticeable.

    I had uncontrolled atopic dermatitis on my face, ears and chin area. Nothing worked; Dr.gave me Elidel and said to use 2x day for 6 wks. Very soothing unlike other meds; After two weeks drastic improvement. Skin is soft with no itching or redness. Love the product.

    Comment:
    I was getting eczema under the inner portion of my eyes. I was using steroids during every flair up only for the eczema to come right back a couple weeks later.

The texture of the skin under my eye seems like it is returning back to normal. Using the ... Show Full Comment
