Has anyone tried FreeDerm HC? My 1 year old son has moderate to severe eczema and all 'off the shelf' creams and lotions simply don't work. FreeDerm HC seems to always comes up No.1 on a google search under "eczema" but I can't find any independant ratings.
Any feedback on this product would be greatly appreciated.

First off I am sorry to hear of your son's struggles. I am 20 and have dealt with eczema the last 6 years. I am still going through products and the best I have found are the topical steroids from my doctor (Protopic). I have used Freederm HC and it does provide some temporary relief. The product works wonders on itching and can help to ease that burden, however it never provided any long term improvement or benefit to the appearance of the skin. If itching is your main concern I would give it a try, but don't expect any miracles. Good luck, hope this helps,

Hi I am 26 years old and have been suffering with eczema since the age of 4. I tried the Freederm HC but unfortunately it had no affect at all (I was pretty dissapointed). I have tried nearly anything you can imagine and then I was told that Dead Sea Salts that you put in your bath from www.westlabshop.com were good for curing psoriosis and eczema so I bought just one packet and I saw instant results. I have recently purchased a 12 week programme of the salts and it is the first time that anything has actually cleared up my eczema. I had to share the news as I have been suffering for so many years and don't want others to suffer too. I know that different products work for different people but this honestly worked for me. Hope this is of some use to you.

Please try Active Manuka Honey Cream www.manukanaturals.com
Their products are all natural and have changed my life. I used to be so embarrassed to hold hands with my boyfriend, I felt like my hands were so scaly and gross. Now I have clear hands that dont itch or bleed. This cream has worked so well for me I want to tell the whole world!!!! They will even send you a free sample.

The bath salts do seem to work well with stopping the itch and drying up sores. You can also try the products and information found at www.eczemabathsalts.com .

I haven't really tried the salts yet, but it does makes some sense. Our skin is dried and broken because of the eczema and the salt treats it, kinda like rubbing salt on mouth ulcers. It does sting, but it heals it eventually. The same effect could probably be get when swimming in the sea

I'm hoping to drop by to the nearest pharmacist tomorrow to get myself some of the bathing salts. But I guess it is a temporary cure. I've always been told that the best cure for eczema is prevention, ie finding out what you are allergic to and avoid it.

I have skin rashes that flare up when I swim in a chlorinated pool and during the dry, cold winter months. Freederm HC works great for me.

Hi Stevio
I've ordered Freederm HC and this has not worked on me whatsoever. I have suffered from Eczema from the age of 3 (i'm now 36) and have tried everything that comes out new on the market.
I have over the last two days tried bathing in salt water and have seen slight improvements, yes it does sting but applying Aveeno cream (with cooling menthol)cools it down.
I am currently applying it to my face so will see what happens, other than this I am reliant on steroid creams to keep it under control.

kind regards

I have dermatitis it maybe is not as bad as ecsema, but I know that it is better when it is moist rather then dry. I tried hands lotion(VASELINE hydrates and heals extra dry skeen) and Jojoba oil and I put some baby oil(relieive dryness), mix everything up and I put it on the spots where I have dermatitis for whole night and it is helping me the best and it is not going to harm body because all those T-gel, Nisoral shampoos destroy fatty layer of the skin(protective layer of the skin).

By the way put a lot of it. It should be as more as better and put soaked pappertowel on top or put piece of plastic bag on top as long as it would be not open, not to ruin bed. Try to use moisturizers for a extra dry skin.

I think Freederm contains coricosteriods. You need to examine the ingredients that the product has. If it does, this is nothing different from using the corticosteroid itself except that it probably comes prepackaged with some natural oils in it. But the bottom line is that you are still using corticosteroids and prolonged usage is not advised. You need to be careful in your usage of corticosteroids.

It is still best to also use natural eczema treatment methods whether it is sea salts or borage oil or neem oil or looking out for diet triggers. If anyone is interested, you can read my research reviews on some of these treatment options as well as my own eczema story here http://www.eczematreatmentsecrets.com

FreeDerm HC is a scam. Didn't do anything for my eczema.

What works for eczema (and has no side-effects, and no steroids) is a Champori Cream. I heard from 4 parents whose children's condition improved in just few applications.
