Anyone used Elidel cream

i took my six month old to see the dermatoligist last week and he prescribed me some Elidel cream, which is non steroidal, touch wood seems to be doing the trick. prior to this i was using 1% HC which wasn't very effective as he was in a costant state of flare up.
has anyone got any experience of using Elidel?? I dont think GPs prescribe it as much as HC as it is very expensive.

Bumping for you.

Yes - we used it. It worked shortterm for DD. But in the end we used Elocon which is a different type of thing - but non-steroidal too.

Best of luck. Any dietary connections? My DD turned out to be very allergic to milk egg and kiwi but not always a connection.
