I tried magicream with no real expectations, and it really did work. in 8 days I have gone from weeping sores to smooth but discoloured skin.I will use again if the eczema comes back like it did with the steroid cream and all the other innefective treatments

Hi John,
I'm glad to hear that magicream worked to smooth over your eczema, but are you saying that yes it worked but it won't prevent any new outbreaks
from appearing? When you say the steroid creme was inefective do you mean it was inefective in preventing eczema but was useful once your skin had flared up?? You see i'm on a bit of a quest at the moment to find something that stops the flare ups. I've suffered from eczema from birth and i'm now well into my 30's and as i've said before right now i'm looking out for total prevention, not a cure (because i now there is none) or a creme that helps after the fact but just pure old fashioned prevention.

Hi "skin deep",

It's a little early for me to say if this prevents any new outbreaks, but what I am getting now is the occasional itchy bump similar to an insect bite. The magicream seems to make them disappear in a day or two. The prescription (steroid) cream seemed to work on my torso but on my hands and legs new bumps would show up all around the same area and then turn into one weeping sore and never go away. These are the ares that the magicream had the most dramatic affect. The skin in these areas is now like new but discoloured. I have been using the magicream for 10 days now so it is very early to draw conclusions. I hope this is helpful.

Hi John,

Thanks for the info on magicreme i'm interested in the 'results' that you're getting. As you said it's way to early to give a conclusive verdict on its' effect on stopping new outbreaks. For me, having had this eczema for over 30 years its prevention that i'm searching for and to find out what actually causes it. However in the intrim i surpose anything that can help an outbreak is always helpful!! Keep me posted. All the best.

Yeah, just drop everything from your diet. In fact, don't eat at all. All these proponents of diet don't know squat. Supposedly "healthy vegans" wind up with cancer.

The truth is, no one knows what causes eczema. If anyone really knew what the cause of eczema truly was, then there wouldn't be millions of people suffering from it.

I've had Eczema since I've been a child, I don't remember how young but I remember having it in elementary school (Let's say 5-6).

Antibiotic creams, lots of washing, getting rid of perfumed detergent, etc. did nothing. It is possible it is from an allergy but I've been tested for the normal allergies and came up negative. My eczema used to be on my ears (ick) where it was visible and looked like a rash but has since moved to be on the back of my scalp. This makes certain treatments trickier but at least it isn't very noticeable (except dandruff)

For me, Emu oil worked to take down the itching very well. I assume a lot of moisturizing will also work well for whomever, but perhaps the omega oils in Emu helps more.

For a perscription I have used cortico steroids, your mileage will vary some work better than others and it is not necessarily strength related. I really recommend Derma Smooth! It is a oil with a low level cortico steroid. You treat your scalp when it is moist and put a plastic cap on to sleep. After I used that a few times it really helped. I assume it was work well on other body parts if wrapped.

At various points I've shampooed daily or ~2x / week (I still wash my body, this is hair I'm referring to). When I shampoo my scalp less it does seem to help.

Hi, It's good to hear that you seem to have your eczema under control. As you know it's very much trial and error when it comes to finding out what works for you. No one said there was a cure for eczema and as for finding out what causes it yes no one seems tyo know what causes the initil onset but surely if one can find out what causes an outbreak in the first place this has got to be better than trying to find a cure after all 'prevention is better than cure',isn't it??
Me, i'll keep researching the causes of eczema if you (Mike in Canada) want to just live with it then be my guest!!!

Can anyone tell me where I can find FreeDerm HC. I have no credit card to buy online so I wanted to find a store that carries it. Thank you!

Hello 'skin deep'

After some more time I would say I am very happy with the magicream. The large discoloured areas are almost normal again, but I still get the odd little itchy bump. Looks like a very effective treatment, but not really a 'cure'. Have you tried hypochlorite bleach in the bath water? I saw a news article on TV about it and there are several links to it on the sidebar of this page.
I may give it a try if the problem persists.

HI Steveo ask your doctor about Triamcinolone Acetonide. I've had eczema all my life and have tried everything from steroids like elidel or protopic to over-the-counter remedies. This cream really works well for me and its non-steroidal.

Any feedback on this product would be greatly appreciated.

Hi John,
I'm happy to hear that the magicreme has helped you. I'll have to look it up and maybe give it a try. Do you know if it's a steroid based creme or not? As for the bleach bath i'm not sure i want to try it but i'll google it nonetheless.

Hello,

I have had Eczema all over my body since I was a child and now at 23 years I have found a cream which keeps my Eczema at bay.

It is called Aveeno 24 hour Moisturising with sher butter and oatmeal - it's only this one that seems to work.

I no longer get Eczema since I have started using this cream and if I stop using it the Eczema comes back which shows it works.

I have advised this cream to many friends and family who all use this to cue their Eczema now. Please give it a go as it took me ages to find something that actually works!

I tried 2 jars of freederm and had minimal resolve. when i called them for a refund they said oh it works for most you need to try the stronger stuff. I said ok and they sent it out. Again the results were very minimal yet they say 100% guaranteed but that is a lie. I went back and forth with them about a refund and because they could not find my empty jars that i returned they basically said sorry. They are a FRAUD and should be investigated by the FDA and others. Bottom line They do not stand behind their product as their ad says. They will not reveal their ingredients which makes it real suspecious and they will not refund a costly white cream. BAD, BAD, BAD. Avoid them and report them
