i think thats what its called. dd3 has been perscribed liquid paraffin 50% in WSP paraffin. is that 50/50?

anyway, how much do i put on, a little goes a long way, and its very greasy and easy to apply. is this one that less is more, or the more the better?

in all my years of eczema treatments we have never had to use this one.

dd3 also has a fungal infection so have dakacort as well. what precuations do i take with this? havent had to deal with this sort for a while.

with 50/50, we just aimed for a thin coating as it is so greasy

would apply daktacort in place of steroid cream when needed. Don't remember needing to take any precautions - what do you mean?

i meant regarding bedding etc. is it like athletes foot? can it spread?

oh i see. I was never given any advice re bedding/towels and it didn't cross my mind. Someone else might know about that
