I have been using OSAS cream for eczema and urticaria which i had for the last 10 years. The hspital tried so may medicine but the medicines only worked to control the symptoem. With the OSAS my quality of life improved and now my diet is not so much restrited. I finally can have fish and other vegetables which was illuminated from my diet for the last 10 years. Now I am larmed to learn that OSAS contains steroid. I've stopped using it anyway before learning about the steroid. I only used it for 3/4 monthsafter using it for about 4 months. Ninety ninepoint nine perecnt of my ecxema is gone but with the knowledge of OSAS containing steroids I'm wondering how much I've damaged my health but then again i was under medication such as protoic and regular antihistamine and other eczema creams. I wonder why NHS dopesn't use this product instead of prescribing strong steroids. Is there any experts out there to answer this. Opininos welcomed.

My 7-month baby was given oral steroids, after 1% cortisone and later Eumovate cream didn't have any effect. Even wet bandages with strong steroid creams did not help and yet OSAS helped within 24 hours from first application. Is OSAS not better than using the prescribed medication he was on. A trace of steroid could certainly not be more harmful that Eumovate cream applied to the face with no effect. What else is there to use - as a parent I cannot endure his suffering and OSAS has allowed him to live a normal life.

We also used this cream on our baby when the prescribed medicine from the doctor, which does contain a mild steroid, didn't have any effect. The OSAS worked really well and completely cleared up the eczema. I would also want some testing on this product to see why it is so effective!

OSAS is a fraud. Everybody knows it, and I do know it first-hand: I bought into the hype and tried osas and my condition did not improve (nor did it become worse to be fair, but side effects of steroids take time to show)
What did improve my entrenched eczema was the spray and cream combo from This stuff is truly amazing!!

i used osas cream after I was told about it by an ethopian lady. my daughter had been suffering with eczema for a good 15months and the doctors had tried everything with no luck. Osas proved to be so effective and my daughter was eczema free in about three days. i since then been using it now and again. last week she developed really bad eczema and i am suffering i dont know what to do anymore because that osas was good. surely there should be a way of regulating whatever steroids are thought to be and help the suffering people

Steroids do not do the body good. Osas was misleading customers claiming to be "natural" medicine. It's good it is no longer here.

What is the big deal about OSAS containing steroids, All the creams prescribed by doctorshave steroids but dont work half as well.

Yeah, but OSAS was claiming to be "natural" and steroid-free. Lying, you know.

Osas helped clear up my skin problems within the week. Now they have discontinued it and my skin is getting worse again.
Osas did work but it's led me to believe it only covers the problem when really I need to get to the root of why my eczema is appearing in the first place.
However, I did prefer using the Osas compared to the strong steroids doctors gave me to use on my face.

hi,after reading everybodies comments carefully i thought that people need to get things in perspective.no1 -there are prescriptions given by the doctors that have alot more worse side effects,no2- indeed it is a misleading product, so why not let the company sell it with a proper license which will include all the ingrdients and let the customers decide whether they wish to take the risk,and no3 there is alot of greed and curruption out there with companies,especially the pharmacy companies who wish certain stuff not be out there on the shelf,that may put them out of the money making schemes,so it is easy to know who is really is loosing out. i have tried this product on my daughter and it works shes had exzema for 10 years.i have tried steroids before and they had thinned her skin but this cream has given her a strong silky skin.

My eldest child suffered with excema for a good few years, i had to run to hospital with him every few weeks, but thankfully he grew out of it, I doubt if the doctors prescribed medicine worked.
Then my youngest had similar problems, again I had to run around getting useless medication from the doctors, then a friend recommended Osas and after about a week he was completely free of Excema.
Even if this product does contain this so called steroid it was effective and there were no side effects as it was only used when required.
Most of the prescribed medication contain similar sort of thing with the doctors stating to only use for a short period, so whats the difference?
My recommendation do as the doctor says use only for a short time but DO use Osas it is the best to treat Excema.

Highly Recommended.

my little niece have eczema and to be honest it really hurt to see her scracth her body like the way she does because of the eczema. like most people we tried every cream you can think of i.e chinise medicines,the ones that GPs always prescribes and nothing works. so one day, friend recomended OSAS lotion to us and trust me within weeks my niece was at peace again, NO SCRACTHING, NO RUSHES, NO CRYING, it was so nice to see her happy and relax again with her own skin.
