    I dab this under and around my eyes. I get eczema scale patches in that and other areas. It works great! I didn't know of the over use but I need more and don't have insurance. I'm afraid of what I'm going to look like when I run out.

    I've been using this for 6 years for PLEVA and some eczema for any spots or flareups. It usually shrinks a good amount once I wake up. I feel a little more cautious the more I use it over the years, I no longer use it every day but only when any spots come up. I don't want to be too reliant or have it affect me negatively.

    I have used this as an ointment for skin rashes for over 10 years. Works well to get rid of immediate flare up but never seems to completely eliminate the rash. Wondering about the long term consequences of using this product. I have had several unusual eye conditions in the past year and am wondering if it could be linked in any way to long term use of this product?

    Honestly, I don't know what skin condition I have I only get it when first exposed to the sun and only on my hands. It's probably some form of eczema but by the time I get to the doctor's, it "looks" different. The little bumps that are filled with liquid have been scratched off. But this year, I got it and it was horrible, Skin cracked and bled, hands and fingers were s ... Show Full Comment
