Review of Avene Cicalfate Creme restauratrice by angmo
This is truly a "near" miracle cream. My son has a eczema patch on his knee for about a year that has never healed. Steriod creams such as (Elomet, Fucicort, Triderm, Dermovate) have helped marginally but the skin never completely healed. My son would scratch and so inevitably the patch of skin on his knee is always raw. I was desperate because I didnt want my son to use steriod creams forever. I was very lucky to bump into a very knowledgeable SA who introduced me to this product. Within a week, I could see the skin was healing faster than using any steroids. When the skin almost intact, then I would put on the steriods to completely heal the skin. The healing process was quicker than just steriod cream alone. On the box it states, this cream is best applied on irritated "damage" skin. Prevent secondary infection and promotes skin regeneration. Contains zinc (anti-bacterial) and copper (soothing & repair). Of course I know this product could never replace any steriod creams but I suspect this might work just as well.
