ELIDEL: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Eczema “After discovering the cost of the medication, I asked my physician if I could get a sample before buying it. The pharmaceutical company would not send samples. That should have been an indication that it might not be effective. I finally purchased the prescription of 30 g for $250. I have not found the product to be very effective. It makes the area applied to very dry which leads to the skin cracking. Vaseline works as well as the Elidel at a fraction of the cost.”

For Atopic Dermatitis “I was prescribed this cream by a consultant dermatologist, I used on my eyebrows on and off for some 5-6months recently my glands on one side of my neck have swollen, I don’t have a cold or flu or any other symptoms of any viral infection, apart from a reddening of my throat, GP prescribed some antibiotics which don’t seem to of done much, I still have a sharp pain when I breathe in quickly through my nose or lie on that side of my neck in bed I haven’t used this since and don’t intend using again nor do I trust the pharma industry”

For Atopic Dermatitis “I suffer with severe atopic dermatitis. I went to several dermatologist before they could figure out my condition. I tried several creams and ointments but they all burned and made the skin red and swollen. Then it would all flake away n become inflammed again. In 5 days of using elidel my skin is clearer than it’s been in months! It doesn’t burn going on the skin (I keep it in the fridge) n it feels smooth going on. Definitely apply a moisturizer after application. Elidel has been a God send!! I hope it works for everyone else. Elidel is very expensive.”

For Atopic Dermatitis “Elidel, used in conjunction with applying nizoral shampoo on my face for 7 mins every day (as directed by dermatologist – apply twice a week after 7 days), has almost completely cleared the dermatitis on my face & neck within a week. I now look normal and feel like I might finally have my life back again after years of struggling with steroid creams that eventually stopped working & more recently being off work & not leaving the house due to looking like a leper! No burning or stinging for me. Long may this phase continue”

For Atopic Dermatitis “Physician was wary of keeping me on steroids on the face since the dermatitis and eczema was still coming back.She gave me Elidel and it worked really well, things cleared up within a few days. Initial side effects were application burning and itching, but skin got used to it and I don’t get that anymore.I kept on it for several weeks and the dermatitis didn’t return by itself. I still use it for any missed spots of eczema or dermatitis that flares up. It’s safe to use on top of my Avar LS wash, so now lots of my dermatitis and eczema is under control with this combo.A personal positive side effect is that it inhibited hair growth on my upper lip where I used it.”
