When my daughter was little she always suffered from eczema, sometimes covering her whole body in a matter of minutes after coming into contact with a certain fabric or eating some type of food. When she was three, one Doctor had her on an exclusion diet and cortisone creams, but i just wasn't happy with how that was going. She was still suffering and scratching herself to a bloody mess.
Different Doctor, different plan of action. No exclusion diet (she had never shown any anaphylactic response) and just cover her with Dermeze from the fridge when she would flare up. Let her body gain some tolerance to foods etc was the idea, as she would most likely grow out of it.
In the beginning I didn't see much difference other than she would ask for the ointment because it was cool and soothing, but then realized that the bad flare ups were less frequent and skin would clear quicker. Within a year I hardly had to use it.
Today she is 10, eats everything and the rare moment that she gets a flare up (usually to a synthetic fabric) she goes to the fridge.
It shouldn't matter whether its greasy or not,that's been fussy.
i have used Dermeze on my son for years and place it in the fridge to keep it cool.that way when I put it on him it relieves the itchiness and flare up. I don't worry about the cream been too oily.as long as it relieves the skin I'm happy.its not a medicated lotion it's a moisturiser .
my son loves it because it feels nice and cold on his skin and relieves the area.
My little girl has eczema and we have tried various moisturisers and eczema creams.
Dermeze is really greasy and not very pleasant to apply. While it moisturises the skin well, I didn't see any improvement in her eczema. So I wouldn't classify it as an eczema cream, but rather a moisturizer for dry skin. I will spend my money on other creams.
This is the best moisturiser for exzema. It was developed by the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne specifically for childrens skin conditions.
It is quite greasy but it works.
It's best used at least 3x days and in conjunction with wet dressings during times of flare up.
