I, too, have eczema, which I have kept at bay for the past 8 months by using Skin System(by Supre)several times a day and shea butter after I shower.

Took my baby to the doctor yesterday with a few questions and the suggestions given to my by Eric. He told me that the advice was fine, gave me some samples and told me to try it for a few days and then if it was going well to pick up a prescription.

So far so good. I've used the Elidel on his excema for two days now, I'm not sure how long before it takes effect. Really I'm sure I'll know more in the morning. I didn't bathe him until tonight and it really seems to flare up the morning after a bath.

Thanks to Christene's firm yet gentle flogging Eric and his wonderful Amy went out of their way for me. I'll keep you updated.

Where you also able to find the Cetaphil product?

When I talked with our friends over @ Novartis results generally are with in the first 5 days. I am glad that your doctor had some samples. Make sure you keep him (Doctor) informed of any changes or possible reactions. Nothing wrong with the free samples, especially since I am not sure how many insurance formularies the product has made it way on yet.

I really hope Trent, has a favorable response. This from what I have heard will become the drug of choice for patients that are no longer responsive to corticosteroids.

Let keep our fingers crossed. Having eczema I am sure is no fun, having your baby boy struggle with the discomfort must be a 100 times worse.

Eric, I have not used the Cetaphil yet, I'm trying to finish up the Aveeno that I have in my cabinet.

However, the Edinel is doing great. His skin is still rough and you can see the excema if you are looking for it, but it is no longer the bright red. I think it has made a tremendous difference to the baby. He no longer seems to be in such agony, especialy after a bath.

I will be picking me up a prescription tomorrow.

Great to hear the trent is doing well with the medication. Iwill keep my fingers crossed that this will have some long term efficacy for him.

If anyone else is interested in the the Elidel cream, the new non-steroidal excema treatment you should talk with your doctor and/or dermatologist.

For more information on the drug you can visit the Novartis patient website information here,

I'm sorry for redigging this up, but KEEP using the Elidel. Its amazing! I worked in advertising for 5 years before getting into the tanning industry and this was my account. We launched this baby, so I went through ALL the market research, photo shoots and rounds of testing. The best part about Elidel is its NON steriodal so it will not cause any thinning to the skin. You can also use it on children 2 years and up. That's why I'm surprised they recommended it for your 13 month old. Tried to fight the FDA for a lower age bracket but lost!! Darn Regulatory!!
I also wanted to mention that UV light was recommended for the control of eczema, in moderation of course;)

HOW TO TURN $6 INTO $6,000!!!!!!
IT'S ONLY $6, TRY IT!!!!

I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little
while back, I was browsing through newsgroups, just like you are now,
and came across an article similar to this that said you could make
thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of
$6.00! So I thought, Yeah right, this must be a scam,but
like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said
that you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and address stated in the
article. You then place your own name and address in the bottom of
the list at #6, and post the article in at least 200 newsgroups.
(There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it
over, and talking to a few people first, I thought about trying it. I
figured: what have I got to lose except 6 stamps and $6.00,
right? Then I invested the measly $6.00. Well GUESS WHAT!!...
within 7 days, I started getting money in the mail! I was shocked! I
figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my
first week, I made about $25.00. By the end of the second week I had
made a total of over $1,000.00! In the third week I had over
$10,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I
have made a total of just over $42,000.00 and it's still coming in
rapidly. It's certainly worth $6.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent more
than that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most
importantly, why it works....Also, make sure you print a copy of this
article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it.
I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you
will start making more money than you thought possible by doing
something so easy!
Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (print it out or
download it.) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come in!
It's easy. It's legal. And, your investment is only $6.00 (Plus postage)

IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not
illegal; and it is virtually no risk - it really works!!!!
If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive
extraordinary dividends.

Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and $50,000 or more can be
yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of
the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its
success by carefully adhering to the instructions.
You will now become part of the Mail Order business. In this business
your product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in
the business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are
happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money made
from the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from
people like you and me asking to be included in that list.
Here are the 4 easy steps to success:

STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on
each piece of paper;PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST. Now
get 6 US $1.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of
paper so the bill will not be seen through the envelope (to prevent
thievery). Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal
them. You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of
paper stating the above phrase, your name and address, and a $1.00
bill. What you are doing is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY
LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for
it! Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried
about the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S.
Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed
legal! Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:

#1) Jeff Millan
1113 N. 19
McAllen,TX 78501
#2) R. Overton
P.O. Box 18818
So. Lake Tahoe, CA 96151
#4) Stephanie Hicks
1283 Evening Canyon
Henderson NV 89014
#5) Romario Domengao
17924 SW 20th St..
Miramar, Fl 33029
#6)Jennifer Way
109 West Ave., #1033
San Marcos, TX 78666

STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move
the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR
Name as number 6 on the list.

STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as
close to original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at
least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close to 24,000 groups) All
you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you make!
This is perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18
Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws.
Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need money,
you can use it again, and again.

PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of the
honesty and integrity of the participants and by their carefully
adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are of
integrity, the program will continue and the money that so many
others have received will come your way.

NOTE: You may want to retain every name and address sent to you,
either on a computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you.
This VERIFIES that you are truly providing a service. (Also, it might
be a good idea to wrap the $1 bill in dark paper to reduce the risk of mail theft.)

So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed,
six members will be reimbursed for their participation as a List
Developer with one dollar each. Your name will move up the list
geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position you will
be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for
only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send
it now, add your own name to the list and you're in business!

Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own
posting. Simply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter and
drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and select 'copy'
from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the
computer's memory.

Step 2) Open a blank 'notepad' file and place your cursor at the top
of the blank page. From the 'edit' menu select 'paste'. This will
paste a copy of the letter into notepad so that you can add your name
to the list.

Step 3) Save your new notepad file as a .txt file. If
you want to do your postings in different settings, you'll always
have this file to go back to.

Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for
various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites,

Step 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new
message by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting paste
from the edit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that
everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a
particular group, click the post message button. You're done with
your first one! Congratulations...THAT'S IT! All you have to do is
jump to different newsgroups and post away, after you get the hang of
it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup!
That's it! You will begin receiving money from around the world within days! You may eventually want to rent a P.O.Box due to the large amount of mail you
will receive. If
you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as long as
the postman will deliver it.

Now the WHY part:
Out of 200 postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low example). So then I made $5.00 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now, each of the 5 persons
who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 200
postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each
of the original 5, that is another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each
make 200 MINIMUM posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I
will bring in an additional $125.00! Now, those 125 persons turn
around and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3 and only receive 5
replies each, I will make an additional $626.00! OK, now here is the
fun part, each of those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with
my name at #2 and they each only receive 5 replies, that just made me
$3,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will all deliver this message to 200
newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still 5 persons per 200
newsgroups react I will receive $15,625,00! With an original
investment of only $6.00! AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the
list, you just take the latest posting in the newsgroups, and send
out another $6.00 to names on the list, putting your name at number 6
again. And start posting again. The thing to remember is: do you
realize that thousands of people all over the world are joining the
internet and reading these articles everyday?, JUST LIKE YOU are
now!! So, can you afford $6.00 and see if it really works?? I think
so... People have said, &quote;what if the plan is played out and no
one sends you the money? So what! What are the chances of that
happening when there are tons of new honest users and new honest
people who are joining the internet and newsgroups everyday and are
willing to give it a try? Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new
users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual
Remember: play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will really
work. IT'S ONLY $6, TRY IT.

Had a new client come in today. She says she has been tanning for several years, but every time she uses a tanning lotion her skin itches so bad for hours on top of hours that she is afraid to use a lotion... She really wants to use something while tanning. Any suggestions? I gave her some free Green Tea to try on her legs today.

Seem I have heard that lanolin is bad for this condition, is that true??

Dragging this up again, but I am interested in hearing more about Elidel. The base here is supposed to start carrying it in the pharmacy soon. Right now, my daughter uses Protopic, and it has been somewhat of a wonder cream for her. It is also non-steroidal. But soon we will have to switch to Elidel.
