I am really put off by the smell!

Yes, it does work and is very useful as you can use it as a soap replacement too. It's also very expensive so your lucky if your GP has prescribed it for you as many won't! However, it is a bit smelly and horribly thick and gloopy, and it clogs up your pipes if you use it in the bath but there you go, that's the price of eczema!

I also can't stand the stuff, but it does work. Although I like Aveeno better.

Ooops sorry I meant 'Infaderm'!

Another vote for Aveeno here - you can use that as a soap replacement too.

Ah, Infaderm. Sorry, not used it so please ignore previous comments. Did wonder when you said about the smell as I've never found Epaderm THAT bad!
