I have had those flu-like symptoms including asthma-like breathing (I don't have a diagnosis), burning and severe itchiness, and sensitivity to touch (see, it's a vicious cycle of being itchy then not consciously scratching, then it hurts and itches more). Whenever I apply it, it tends to get better in 2-3 days, then it comes right back the following week. It's been like that for the p ... Show Full Comment

I get flare-ups on my eyelids, so bad that my eyes will almost completely swell shut. The first time I used it on my eyelids it burned and itched like fire.

I've had eczema since I was about 10 years old; once I turned 30 the eczema started to flare up on my face all around my nose and mouth and eyelids. I tried everything from lanolin ointment to steroid ointments, nothing worked for months. After only 3 days of using this (2X a day) it cleared up completely! Burns a little when you first put it on but so worth it in the end.

The doctor prescribed this for my 5yr old son fro his chronic eczema, at first it looked like it was working, but then it started to get worse than it was and he started to get headaches and sore throats. he has also been complaining of stomach aches and pains. I am now taking him off and hoping that only after 2 weeks of taking this we will not see any lasting problems.

My teenage son uses this only on flare ups and it clears it after just a few days. I only use it once a day before bed and he hasn't had any side effects. I am afraid to use it on his face though, but some of your review state that it's ok?? I didn't think you were suppose to put a steroid on your face.
