(I just posted this on another website, but wanted to post it here, too...because I am so happy with this product)
I have had what looks like Athlete’s Foot on only one of my feet for years. Though I’ve told doctors that it does not seem at all contagious and is sometimes accompanied by small, very itchy bumps, none has ever told me I may have a form of eczema. I’ve had prescriptions for steroid creams, and they would offer relief for a few days, but then the area would be worse. Then I would go on to try something else – some anti-itch lotion or whatever. That, too, might offer some relief… for a few days… or stop the itch but do nothing to help heal the poor dry skin. Meanwhile, I had a couple spots of scaly skin, one on the back of my arm and one on the back of my leg. I saw this Aveeno product in a store and thought I would try it, thinking that if it’s good enough for eczema, it might do the trick for whatever ails my skin. I’ve been using it now for about two weeks and I can tell you that within days, all those areas have improved. In fact, the rather raised, red, scaly area on the back of my leg? GONE. My foot doesn’t itch AND the skin seems to be recovering. The spot on the back of my arm is almost gone and I am no longer compelled to scratch at it all day. So my review of this product is… so far, so good! And I am so glad to have hope of never having to use steroids on my skin, after all I have heard and read about them. This cream may cost more than some basic body lotion, but for me, it will be worth it.
