I have a 2 year old that has awful eczema and nothing is working for her poor hands. I have finally gotten her skin mostly under control and we have a regular routine of lotions and baths and free and clear laundry detergents and everything I can think of or hear of. Her little fingers are just cracking open and bleeding and hurting so bad and the doctors say that there is nothing else they can give her. They also tell me that taking her to a dermatologist or allergy dr will do no good until she is older. Someone recommended that I try the desoximetasone... i was trying to check it out and i was directed here. I didn't know if it was worth mentioning to the dr to ask for a prescription. ANY suggestions or information would be greatly appreciated.
Suprised no responses to you. I have very bad cracked skin from what I believe it's do to is not wearing skin protection when in the military with serveral chemicals. The skin was very dry and cracked and would not heal, I have tried everything on the market. Over a period of 6 months my Doctor perscribed the mometasone and later the trimcinolone. Both of which had some type of exfoliation additive which irritated my skin and didn't aid in healing. Like the trimcinolone has acetonide which has a acetone base like fingernail polish remover acetone. Likewise with the momentasone. I found with the desozimetasone .05% was then perscribed, within about 4 days my hands cracks were healed over closed up and has started to look normal. There is slight irritation or redness under the skin but the surface is amazingly healed. I have put up with this cracked sking for over 6 years. It was on 5 of my fingers 3 fingers on one hand and 2 on the other. I have been amazed of the progress. I wish your daught well.
