Thanks, needed some of this. heat added.

Excellent as a longer term solution for eczema.

The only stuff that ever got rid of my spots and cleared my face up as a teen, HOT!!!

(still use it for the odd spot that appears now and then and it shifts it completely within 2 days)

can you use sudocream for eczema? My daughter has eczema, but all she gets prescribed are Timodine, Hydrocortizone and Canestean creams, which are not very effective...

I've had a bad time with seborrheic dermatitis, and the best thing I can recommend is general good health, and non-steroid moisturising creams like this one.

Hydrocortizone creams would push back the symtoms when I used them, but they'd appear as soon as I reduced my treatment. I'll go on with this problem for the rest of my life, just because my skin is intolerant to a type of yeast that lives happily on everyone's skin.

It's my opinion that skin conditions are strongly linked to your physical/mental wellbeing. Get regular exercise, enjoy variety in life, and take your diet seriously. Sunlight helps my condition a lot too, but I don't think it helps all kinds of eczema. I've tried coal tar shampoos, steroid creams and UV treatment for my skin, only the last one was successful. Now I just use Cetraben emollient with a dispenser after washing so it soaks in easily. Cheap if you can get it on prescription from a doctor.

Good luck finding a treatment that works for you, hope this helps

this stuff is good for eczema and spots, like the poster above said diet also plays a big role, especially avoiding too much fried and fatty foods and too much dairy oh and yes sunshine is good in moderation of course! :-)

If you don't already know it aqueous creams are bad for long term use as they cause the skin to thin. Petroleum or other types are recommended for long term.

I'm not saying this is aqueous by the way, I've no idea about it.

Thanks for advices. I know, sunshine is very good, whenever we are out for fresh air, everything she has goes away. But comes back when we are indoors. That`s why I am so happy that the weather is getting warmer with lots of sunshine.

Will try sudocream now:)

where did you get that from? It doesn't quite sound right...

Original Poster

"Aqueous cream contains sodium lauryl sulphate, which is a fairly heavy duty detergent. Sadly it is widely used - one it's cheap and two, it's prescribing habit."

Sudocrem contains:

•hypoallergenic lanolin, to help soothe and soften irritated skin.
•zinc oxide which reduces the loss of tissue fluid.
•benzyl benzoate and benzyl cinnamate which are ingredients of Balsam of Peru, recognised for its healing properties.
•benzyl alcohol, a weak local anaesthetic which eases pain and also acts as a disinfectant/antibacterial agent

note it does not contain sodium lauryl sulphate which seems to cause the problem which is what is found in aqueous creams but rather falls into the catagory of one of the creams suitable for long term use.

Original Poster

The National Eczema Society recommends alternatives such as white soft paraffin or even other types of emollient without such a high sodium laurel sulphate content.

Sudocrem contains no sodium laurel sulphate so it can presumed that this is one of the creams recommended by the eczema society.

I know i've copied and pasted but i wanted to compare ingredients to show how sudocrem differs from aqueous creams.
