I have terrible allergies and seem to react to anything I touch and every insect bite. This leads to many sleepless nights due to constant itching. I used to rely on cortisone to quell the itch, but this product is wonderful! I now keep a tube on my nightstand and another in my purse at all times. Highly recommended for poison ivy, mosquito bites, hives, etc..

My daughter had a weird rash on her hands and I tried EVERYTHING but steroid cream. This stuff is amazing- worked like a charm- I will have this in my home @ all times!
Relieves Itchy Skin from Dyshidrotic Eczema/Pompholyx

I've had Dyshidrotic Eczema, or Pompholyx, on my left heel for about three years now. For a few days, skin will itch, blister, and weep and then alternate with a period of extremely dry, cracked, fissured skin. This process repeats itself indefinitely. I'm not sure exactly what caused it, but looking back, I believe that it was triggered when I rubbed my heel against a concrete sidewalk. It is believed that Pompholyx is caused by a metal allergy and concrete contains a wide variety of metals. Stress is also said to be a contributing factor and is something which I have experienced to the extreme over the past four years. I've been experimenting with different supplements as a systemic approach to treating the problem - selenium is one that I am trying out at the moment. I haven't yet found a cure for the eczema itself, but this cream relieves the severely itchy skin that results from this difficult and persistent skin condition. It works almost immediately. I also use Shikai Borage Therapy Foot Cream to handle the dry, cracked, and fissured skin that always emerges after the itching phase.

If you can believe it I ordered this product for my cat who suffers from skin allergies. She was on regular Vet prescribed cortisone, but when the medicine was discontinued the rash came back so I switched to the Florasone creme. It has helped her without the harmful effects of cortisone.

Works better than hydrocortisone cream for me and my family.
