I thought the GP said no - but what else can I use. Its getting quite bad. Could go to GP but he is useless and I plan to change GP practice in a couple of weeks after the next jabs. Any advice on the best creams for ezcema on the face?
we were prescrobed diprobase for eczema on DS2s face when he was 3 days old!! Maybe there is a reason your DD can't use it?
diprobase is just an emollient, no? You can use it on the face.aveeno a good moisturiser, inc face, for dd2
I presume you can as it is a moisturiser. here is a description
Told you my GP is useless glad I'm changing GP soon!
Which aveeno do you use pinetreedog? Where do you buy it from or shall I get my new GP to prescribe it for me?
My ds's suspected eczema was on his face, around his eyes, and we were prescribed Diprobase for this.
i was prescribed diprobase for baby eczema - worked a treat
I can get aveeno for dd on prescription.
we use this on dd's face all the time,
Chickweed cream is great for eczema too. Have used this on dd1 since she was a baby.
diprobase you have to be careful with, it can work in some cases but can badly effect otherstry it and if it doesnt work use aveenodiprobase can trap in heat especially after bathing and iritate the skin even moreonly put it on after cold bathshope this helps
it stings my dds face, makes eczema on her face worse, but soothes every where else
depends.diprobase is contraindicated for some eczema.so gp isnt necessarily wrong.thing about eczema is what works for one doesnt work for another.talk to the doctor againand aveeno flared up eczema for us
We had to resort to using a mild steroid cream on DDs face - she was overdue and born with very dry skin which was later diagnosed as eczema. Once the steroid cream had cleared up the worst of it, the diprobase seems to keep it under control.
