florasone cream?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Anyone familiar? These are the inactive ingredients:

benzyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, glycerin, glycol stearate, isopropyl myristate, mineral oil, potassium hydroxide, purified water, stearyl heptanoate.

 

Any red flags? I was slathering this stuff on DDs eczema on her face to offer her some relief. On the package it says to apply 3-4 times minimum, so I've just been generous and applying as needed. Its become less, but now I'm just worried I'm doing more harm than good.

What information are you looking for? If its harming him?

I've used it before with no problems on my ds. Steroid use isn't great but I am thankful to see his symptoms relieved while we do other testing etc.

If it can be harmful in the long run. Sometimes I feel like I'm slathering the stuff on her several times a day. I just couldn't seem to find much info on the ingredients online.

Wow! I am so glad to see this thread.  I feel like we have been trying everything to help  my son's eczema - homeopathic remedies, acupuncture, probiotics, etc.   I just came across a reference to this cream and it seems to get great reviews on every site I have seen so far.  I am curious to know if there are any bad side effects to the ingredients as well.  I am going ahead and buying this as I cannot stand having to use a steroid cream when my ds eczema gets soo bad.  Will hope that others may respond here as well.
