Doublebase Emolient Cream
Advantages: Some very short relief
Disadvantages: greasy, only short relief followed by worse skin than originally. over priced
I suffered with very bad eczema for the first 18 years of my life. When i say very bad i mean terrible! at times it was difficult to find a patch of skin that was eczema free, this meant i was scratching all over and desperate for some sort of relief. Doctors tried everything with me and for almost 5 months i was trying double base. To be blunt it simply didnt work.
Firstly when applying, if the cream gets into any sort of tiny open cut it will sting, this is obviously a problem for eczema sufferers because the skin is cracked and open. So once past the uncomfortable application of the cream there is a period of time where relief from itchiness does occur however there is a constant tingling sensation over the skin which can be very off putting. Another downside is that even though the cream is quiet thin, the areas of applcation are left very shiny giving anyone wearing it a sort of greasy skin look. (not good) . The worst part however comes about an hour after the application when any sort of relief seems to vanish and the skin actually dries out to a worse state then it was in. My brother has a degree in pharmacutical and medicinal chemistry and after analysing the cream he concluded it was down to the unusually high percentage of alcohol. This can cause existing dry skin to worsen
So to achieve any kind of comfort using this cream constant application, all day would be required any sort of break from a routine leads to total discomfort.
Having used many creams and ointments the only thing i would recomend, no matter how bad or small your problem. Is Diprobase Cream Emollient. This solved all my problems and i am now eczema free with only occasional use.
Summary: Save yourself the grief and get something else. I recomend diprobase for any dry skin.
