A-derma: exomega emollient cream

28 March 2010 Tags: , , , , 11 Comments

I have tried both the exomega bath and shower wash and this emollient cream at a time when I had moderately severe eczema. I can say it’s a product i trust now because It was a great help back then at relieving and managing the unpleasant symptoms. The cream is for both face and body and comes in a very large 500ml tube. It contains omega 6 and other ingredients specifically targeted toward soothing and healing skin with eczema. The cream is thick and applies without stinging. This is as good as it gets in terms of medically formulated eczema skin care. It contains no steroids so it can be used very liberally and as needed. I have no experience using this on babies or toddlers but I believe that it would be okay for them too. It’s good value for money as it can be used on both the face and body with no problems. If you have acne prone skin this might be too heavy to use on your face as it is an oil based cream. Oils can be problematic on active eczema, but this tends to be more the case with pure oils rather than small amounts added to an emollient cream base like this. As it’s a heavy emollient cream it’s definitely more for dealing with current flare-ups of eczema rather than as an everyday facial moisturizer. For that use it is just about perfect so I’m giving this 5 stars. *****.

    I really like A-derma’s Dermalibour cream for smaller patches of eczema. It is good for soothing itching and as an emollient.

    For larger areas this exomega cream is definitely good but the trixera range by Avene is very similar if you can’t find this one and pretty good value. The bath and shower washes like the trixera emollient and cleansing bath treatment are also helpful for eczema on the body.

    If it works for you, a hydrocortisone cream can be brilliant at quickly clearing a spot of eczema but shouldn’t be used for very long or too often. Only use that when you really need to – but don’t be afraid to use it if you need to.. if that makes sense. :-)

    Thanks a lot Amanda.
    My only problem is A-derma is not available in Thailand and we have limited Avene facial care here. I heard a lot good thing about A-derma and will most probably check it out when I go to Europe or simply purchase online. I rarely have eczema outbreak in my leg or once, hand. Everytime I just apply moisturizer to soothe itchiness or ask prescription from doctor, doctor’s prescription is helpful though. I just hate the scar that need months to clear off. (“n)

    I can’t get them easily locally either, I recommend buying it online somewhere if you can, i use parasend for avene & a-derma and they’re reliable (I don’t work for them btw).
    Sometimes a simple moisturizer can be just as good in cases like yours when it’s not too bad.
    If it bothers you though, don’t be afraid to use a hydrocortisone cream to clear it up – I don’t think it will scar if you use it sparingly. Cortisone creams are only really a problem for people with really bad eczema that need to use them all the time.

    Eczema is really so itchy and i cant help but scratch it. Corticosteroid is a heaven sent because it can relieve the itchiness and redness. :

    It certainly is very effective, as long as you don’t need to use it for prolonged periods of time as it can thin the skin. For the face I recommend Elidel, see my review of Elidel for more information.

    This has been a lifesaver for me over the past two months or so… even more so than Dermalibour! I wish it came in a smaller, more portable tube though.

    Yes, it and the bath wash got me through some bad times, and I agree a smaller size would be fabulous. Good luck in the Ishiki Skin competition by the way :-D
