Cerave is probably the single most effective treatment I have found for reducing inflammation and strengthening the skin barrier. (And compared to other treatments I have had, what a bargain! ) I am not aware of any side effects. Skin improvement began the first week I used it. My skin is softer and more supple, ichthyosis and scaling are way down, redness has abated considerably (though not entirely) , and the horrible itching is a minor distraction now. I have had fewer outbreaks of staph infections, and - most remarkable - I look healthier and am comfortable most of the time. In addition I am more focused mentally, more rested, and less prone to depression .
These results are amazing given my history. I do need to use CeraVe at least twice daily to maintain its benefits, which seem to include immune system strengthening. And there is one frustrating area not responding very well to this treatment - my face ( not the area I would choose if I had to have one problem area). Overall though, with the itching way down, I am more relaxed and happier than I have been in years. I hope others with my condition will find this cream as as helpful.
Here's my story: I'm a 27 year old male who's had eczema since I can remember. There have been periods where it's been relatively mild and periods where it's been extreme - extreme enough to not want to go out in public. As I've gotten older it's tended on the extreme, especially during the dry, winter months. Specifically, I get bad facial eczema (very bad on the eyelids), as well as eczema behind the knees and elbows, neck, scalp, chest, back, etc. I've tried a lot of moisturizers, steroids (both oral and topical), elidel and protopic, dandruff shampoos, and a variety of other things. All of the moisturizers irritated my skin. Steroids worked but they're not a long-term solution (because of the side-effects; plus, after regular use I could tell I was building a tolerance). The only useful dandruff shampoo was Nizoral - but that was more of a temporary fix, and it left my hair super dry and brittle.
After all of the experimentation I found a routine that keeps my skin about 95% clear, and most of it is due to Cerave. The only exception is my eyelids - I apply protopic daily, and then Cerave over top of it. This keeps them about 99% clear. I've tried going without the protopic but my eyelids get pretty bad without it still; fortunately, protopic does not weaken with use, nor have the known long-term side effects - like skin-thinning - that steroids have.
A little bit on the specifics. When I began using it, it actually caused a slight burning sensation, and my skin would turn pretty red. This lasted for about 1-2 weeks but gradually went completely away.Read more ›
After getting a terrible sunburn from using lachydrin during the day, I decided to look for a new lotion, and the reviews on this seemed like it was worth a try. It is the best! After using it twice a day for only 2 days, my heels feel like they are made of skin again, not rocks covered in sandpaper! My hands feel moisturized throughout the day, even if I don't use lotion immediately after washing them. I find that it is too heavy-feeling for my face, but if you use a small amount, it can be used on arms and legs, as it spreads quite easily despite its thick consistency. It is by far the best moisturizer I have ever used. Worth double the price, however they sell it two dollars cheaper at wallmart and wallgreens.
