Re: Eczema cream?

Short story : Elocom on prescription. Worked a treat.


Long story ..
I've never had any kind of skin issues until about 3 years ago I went swimming in a river in France.. Following day my ears were blocked and itchy, right inside.. I assumed some infection from the river water. Went to the GP a couple of weeks later and she insisted it was eczema, only right there in the ear canal.. Maybe infection too.. Antibiotics and various creme did nothing.. I went back a few times, got different creme etc ..
Eventually I gave up, it was incredibly satisfying sticking my finger in the itchy ear.

Fast forward to recently, one of the kids had a bit of eczema and I took her to a dermatologist, she prescribed Elocom.. Cleared up the kid in days.. So I tried it in my ears and hey .. It worked, I've had nothing since..
