Steroid cream for eczema singapore

It is important to use the correct amount of topical steroid for your eczema, as instructed by your healthcare professional. Topical steroids should be applied with clean hands so that the skin just glistens. It can sometimes be difficult to judge how much steroid to use and there are guidelines on the amount required to cover body areas that are affected by eczema. These are based on the Finger Tip Unit (FTU), and explained in detail in our fact sheet which you can download as a pdf from the related documents to the right of this page.

Wow. My daughter 2yro teacher just told me about this concoction today! She said she would make me a bottle of it. Meaning get recipe is lavender, tea tree oil and coconut oil and spray on body, rub down and cover with clothes. In the 2 years my daughter has been here I’ve tried everything on her body except from the inside out. I believe that it is now time to switch her from dairy to possible soy and definitely gluten free foods to help her. Now she only scratches when she’s angry, upset, crying, sleepy and sometimes excited. She’s smart enough to know something is going on with her skin but I really want her dark patches to go away. During the winter her skin patches change to dark and in the spring/summer her patches are invisible besides rosy. I’m hoping charging her diet helps and this cream as well. Thanks for sharing. I’m grateful! #JourneyThroughEczema

Gabriel first started exhibiting small patches of eczema at 10 months old. He was prescribed a “light” steroid cream by the doctor, but the eczema only became worse. The doctor then prescribed Mometasone and Elidel creams. His parents did exactly what they were instructed to do, and they watched Gabriel become more itchy and miserable before their eyes. He was then prescribed, Triamcinolone Acetonide Ointment, Fluocinolone, oral antibiotics, and oral steroids.  They were instructed to apply the topical steroids 3 times a day. This therapy worked temporarily, but when it stopped working, Gabriel’s mother described his skin looking as if it were “attacking itself.”

Homemade skin cream is super simple to make… and so much safer than steroid creams or other non-so-friendly toxin-laden over-the-counter treatments and eczema creams  so often used for dry, rash-infected skin. But this skin cream is perfect for anyone, even if your skin is glowing and healthy! And that’s a good thing. My poor little guy (who’s 9 months old) kept flaring up with a rash around this chubby little cheeks. While still as adorable as ever, those red rashes can break a mama’s heart. We tried eliminating foods, using coconut oil, and all sorts of other natural treatments. But this homemade skin cream gets two big thumbs up as something that *finally* worked to support his healthy glowing, baby skin.
