Elocom is great when you have a flare, but you can’t use it for more than a few days, and not on an extensive part of the body. Topical creams like dexeryl can help reduce the frequency and the severity of the flares.
Unfortunately poor GP understanding and overcaution has ensured that atopic dermatitis is one of the most undermedicated diseases out there. Generally if you are suffering, I would go pretty heavy on something mid strength like elocom.

Once you are at clobetasol then you need to be more careful.
