You probably already know this information - Elidel is a cream containing pimecrolimus, an immunosuppressant. It works by decreasing your body's immune system to help slow down the growth of atopic dermatitis (eczema) on your skin.
Elidel is used to treat severe atopic dermatitis when other medications have not worked well.
The link below has 2 reviews made by people who have used Elidel and it sounds promising.
