    Try a referal letter from a (private) Doctor & get yourself to a Public clinic like {say} Sai Ying Poon Jockey Club clinic skin clinic.

    [Sounds like you need a steroid cream].

    YMMV

    The closest thing in Hong Kong to this product is Ezerra cream or ointment . It's available in Mannings or pharmacies . Very expensive but a very. Effective when used as indicated

    Skin clinics usually give my friend aqueous creams which don't work and steroid creams which only work for a while. They don't really cure anything. And I have heard too much about CeraVe products...

    I am going to try to find them (Ezerra cream or ointment) then. Around how much are they and do they actually work?

    They do work very well as preventers : for minor outbreak used alone and also to reduce reliance on steroid : but for a very severe outbreak you still need some degree of steroid control. Ie for steroid sparing .
    Perfect for kids too

    Difficult, I managed to get a medicine strong in cortisone, applied it in tiny amounts, aided by Sebamed lotion, no more eczema

    Thanks! I searched up steroid sparing agents used to eczema but do you know any specific creams/ointments?

    Wow! That's great! If you don't mind, can you tell me how severe your eczema was? And which lotion did you use? I heard Cetaphil products are also good for treating/managing eczema....
