nbsp;nbsp;In the little city in Ohio, yunegor Joe Lamb (Joel Courtney) attempts to move on along with his existence after his mother, Elizabeth, dies within a steel mill incident. With his deputy father (Kyle Chandler) being progressively a lot more distant, Joe fills his time by aiding his best buddy Charles (Riley Griffiths) make a Super 8 motion picture for a film festival. Whenever a military train derails and releases an otherworldly force onto the unsuspecting city, Joe and his buddies embark about the journey of the life span to uncover the shocking fact surrounding the catastrophic incident. Super 8 would possibly be a large amount of fun for anyone who has by no means looked at a Steven Spielberg movie. Unfortunately for Abrams, who desperately would like to become the following Spielberg, just about all people has witnessed the moviemaking magic of Close Encounters of the 3rd Type, Raiders from the Misplaced Ark, Saving Personal Ryan Schindler's Record and much more. Nevertheless, Abrams chooses a lot of other films to copy: like Jaws, the monster is unveiled incredibly bit by bit; like Jurassic Park, the creature prefers to torture its prey from within motor vehicles that it rolls across the street; and like War from the Worlds, the connection among just one father and kid is distant, strained and rife with misunderstanding. Borrowing from other movies, Super 8 also resembles The Goonies, The Iron Large, and most upsettingly, Cloverfield. The whole venture is painfully and naturally derivative. Just like plenty of movies, the military assumes the role from the villain, the mysterious monstrosity is misjudged through the multitude, plus the group of young children is fully as well brave, adventurous and lucky. Among the many only clever things consists of the usage of the movie-within-a-movie gimmick, which by itself isn't unique. Right here, the college student movie is intentionally undesirable, delivering lots of humor. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;

No, you don't have to stop using anti-aging products, bcuseae they won't do anything bad for your skin. But you shouldn't have to worry about aging at 14. It's good that you want your skin to be nice, but wait at least until you're in your 20s to worry.

Under eye cream for super sensitive skin?Hi there. I have rlaely sensitive skin. Like if I change products, try to get a facial or attempt to exfoliate, I get a red patch with little bumps within 24 hours. I then have to go to the doctor to get a ointment to make it go away or it's there for a year. It's nuts. Regardless, I found Dr. Hauschka's line which is all natural blah blah and it's working well. However, after 5 years of using the under eye balm, I suddenly am having a reaction. Don't know if they changed the formula or what but it's just not cutting it anymore. So now I'm looking for some suggestions on alternative eye creams for sensitive skin. I always have used it more preventively I don't have wrinkles to puff up or dark circles fade so no need for anything harsh like retinol which will destroy me! I just like slathering on a thick cream to hopefully ward it off in the future! Thanks in advance!

PAULA

I am originally from South Africa and can confirm that I used to get hold of oilatum in South Africa, to be honest I dont know if its still available because I live in the UK now and I was young when in SA so my mom took care of all the meds... I do seem to remember something about them pulling it from SA markets but dont quote me on it.. If u have no luck its well worth you finding someone who can send you a nice load of oilatum products or maybe amazon.co.uk.. I have had fantastic sucsess with it..

OILATUM IS MY MIRICLE....
I would love to share my experiance with all u fellow sufferers out there, I too have suffered from severe atopic eczema since birth, I am 24 and have had a flare up that has lasted almost 18 months, I have constantly been using Eumovate(moderate steriod) through this flare up without results, it got so severe that i was put on a course of oral steriods for 5 days combined with potent steriods, this did help to get the flare up under control but as we all know once we stop the steriods and creams we back to sqaure one... well not this time my miricle has been OILATUM, I used to use it as a child but not as often I started using it again during my steriod treatment(5 days) because by the grace of god my sister bought me a bottle and forced me to use it and have continued to use it twice every day.. IT is magic... you can get the shower gel witch is fantastic or just use the bath stuff in the bath and the shower... It is my miricle. Its been two weeks without a steriod cream or pill or antihistamine and no itching my skin is softer than i can ever remember it being and I am probably happier than ive been for years cus I finally feel like ive cracked it... I know every one of us are different and differnt product help different sufferers but if you havent tried oilatum religously for a week or two, do me a favour and go out there and get some... If it works for you like it has for me its dam well worth the investment... please post your results or experiances.. best of luck....

I have suffered with eczema since birth and the best thing for me is oilatum in showers and bath, sanex moisturising shower gel i find gentle to wash, double base gel or aqueous cream to moisturise and steroid cream for flare ups, also for the really awful cracked sore type of eczema especially on hands, docs can give a very waxy type of stuff, can't remember what its called now, but if you buy cotton gloves and slap it on and wear gloves over night it helps amazingly. But i must add all thse creams and moisturisers can sometimes just be slightly helping an underlying issue. I for example have a wheat intolerance and a yeast overgrowth in my gut which can play havoc with my skin. I highly recommend to everyone with skin problems going to see a specialist for allergy and intolerance testing, not through your doctors neccesarily as they tend to not always believe in food intolerances and will just treat surface problem.

Hi - just thought after reading all of these messages that I should share my experiences as a 41 year old with a 2 year old daughter. After years and years of trial and error, major skin eruptions on the face from age 19 and horrible itchy eczema all over the combination I have found works for both of us really well is Infaderm Bubble bath followed by Cetraben cream. When the face erupts i use Dermol for washing. Now I rarely have any problems - and Lottie is OK provided she lets me cream her properly (not always th case). She wears cotton pjs with mitts at night which helps a lot. And yes - winter is definitely the worst time - the constant contrasts between hot and cold is awful. Keep your house cool!

I don't know what you've used before Milly but there are lots of emollient creams that you can get on prescription: diprobase, oilatum cream, oilatum gel, aveeno cream, epaderm, emulsifying ointment, Unguentum M,calmurid etc and many more!

I don't know who told you that vaseline is 'bad' - I know they say that petroleum based products ultimately dry out your skin but I've never found that personally and when my skin has been bad in the past vaseline was the only thing that I could use that didn't cause irritation. I used to get it on prescription as White Soft Paraffin in a 500g tub (WSP is basically vaseline just not the brand name).

A lot of people seem to experience irritation with water based emollients. I certainly did. I use the WSP on my face every morning without any problems (and have been doing so for years). On the rest of me I use a lotion. You've just got to try different ones until you find one that agrees with you.

I have been using doublebase gel on my face for the best part of a year, at first with good results. However gradually I've had more and more flare-ups - large red blotches appearing, really sore and occasionally my whole face has swelled up including eyelids - very uncomfortable and disfiguring. The soreness is now every couple of days and I'm despairing! I'm prepared to accept it could be any number of things but have begun to dread putting the gel on as it stings so much. I'm going to leave it off now for a while to see what happens, but what can I use instead? i've had a reaction to aqueous cream - I just need a plain old moisturiser. Why's vaseline so bad for the skin?

Hi there louise, something which I could recommend for using in the bath is Dermol 600 or for using in the shower is Dermol 200. They are very moisturising for the skin and they contain an antimicrobial ingredient to prevent infections. I have used these two products for years now and really recommend them. I follow up using them with either Dermol 500 moisturiser or Doublebase gel. Hope this is of some help.These products are available on a script from the doc in the uk.

I've used oilatum plus and it didn't suit me at all. Made my skin break out in hives and itch-really horrible. I use balneum plus at the moment which seems to be a lot better. I can't speak for everyone though. Also E45 bath oil is quite good because it only contains 2 ingredients. It did make me a little bit itchy though, but not as bad as oilatum. Also, i use doublebase before a bath, to create a protective layer.

i totali understand where your coming from but theres bot much you can do to treat a 3 year olds skin as different oiuntments will ruin her skin and her skin will go thinner before the age of 20. so at the moment i would recommend you stick to the bathing solutions and then maybe when shes older use stronger creams.

Hi Rav,
I can totally sympathise with you. My daughter suffered the same at that age. We were given steroid cream and Aqueous cream. The steroid cream made her little cheeks look like an od sea captain all worn and weathered and the aqueous cream made her skin even drier. I found out that the ingredients in most of these treatments tend to be liquid parrafin which is a derivative of petroleum. Apparently it puts a coating over the skin, like clingfilm, so that the skin cannot breath. As you are probably aware with eczema the skin needs to breath and to stay moisturised. I found that a bath containing only organic oats wrapped in a cloth followed by oiling her damp skin with olive oil worked a treat. I didnt use any soap or shampoo at all.

Rav,

Has all allergies been ruled out... Cow's milk, soy milk, breast milk... it could be something that you are eating..Sometimes, the skin presents with what is going on inside of the body and creams and oils just relieve the symtoms not the underlying problem.

Hi everyone

My 8 month baby has just been prescribed with the AVEENO CREAM. I was wondering whether there should be an expiry date on it. All I could find is this code 1706/2NS on both the box and base of the tube.

Also, is the cream better than the lotion?

Many thanks in advance!

Lalella,

My eczema definitely gets worse in the winter. I think it is the cold harsh weather and stuffy central heated rooms which aggravate it. A tip for night time is to leave a bowl of water near a radiator (if its on) so that there is always moisture in the air.

hi jav
try diprogel and aqeous cream (can be prescribed by gp's) and after it has cleared up there may be a few dark patches left but that can also be treated by bio-oil which is now sold in ay pharmacy and costs around £10 but its worth it.
so give it ago.

Hi Sania

There are fodds which help eczema and foods which can make it worse. It also depends on whether you have eczema due to allergies.

Get allergy tested. Meanwhile one of the best foods is carrot. It is proven to help prevent and clear uo eczema. Other good ones are butternut squash, seeds (pumpkin seed are a good bet), almonds, apricots(avoid dried ones as they are high in histamine, green leafy veg, heering, linseed oil, mackerel, mango, nuts (take care due to allergies, cantaloupe melon and avocado.

Eczema sufferers tend to be deficient in zinc, magnesium, B and C vitamins. Anything which contains these should help.

Avoid all high histamine foods - vinegar, alcohol, concentrated tomatoes, berries. The list is quite endless. I wrote the whole list under a chat on allergies about a month ago, on this sit if you can find it.

Good luck and remember if you change your diet you need to find replacements for any nutrients you might be losing out on. THis is why it is best to get tested and consult with your doctor.

Good luck.
Gina

Hi

You can use aveeno forever and can get it on prescription to save paying for it. It will prevent your skin drying out in the first place. You should use it daily preferably twice a day or as required. If your eczema is really bad and you need to get rid of it quickly despite what most people think a short term steroid cream (hydrocortisone) will be fine. Ask the chemist for a 1% solution it is very week but will clear the problem quickly. Just don't use it very often if you can help it.

Let me know if I can be of any other help.

Hope it goes well.
Gina

Try aveeno cream you can get it from the chemist without prescription and it is totally natural. It is really moisturising.

Apply after a luke warm bath with oilatum also available without prescription.

Have a good wedding

hi.
i also have eczema and recently my doc gave me double base it so true that it clears up your skin plus it also cleanses ur skin, dont know if any of you users have noticed it but it does.
i think rather than spending money on herbal or chinese medication your better of with aqueos cream and double base.
also i have heard that if you are left with dark patches on your skin the new bio oil is good so get out there and give it a go.

Hi, I'm 26 years old, and have had dermatitis since the age of 10 (plus I have asthma, and varies other allergies) .. To be honest, I have found it difficult to control my symptoms when I was young, but now I finally OK (thanks to my new doctor). If you have problems sleeping, skin is itchy, and u feel hot then u need Antihistamine tablets!!!! I know people say they donít work I sleep a lot better now and donít have itching problems at work or while doing sports (judo/gym/running)...also I have found Aveeno Cream really affective (plus Doublebase Cream and Olive Oil are really good).
You have to make changes to your lifestyle to...example: for me; Iím allergic to dust mites so I changed my bedding covers/pillows, etc, wooden flooring etc. All these changes have really helped! Be careful of steroid creams! Long term use can damage the appearance of your skin. some doctors donít tell u that.. i used it for 6 years and doctors tell me after that it not good for long term use (thins the skin, pigment problems, makes skin look unhealthy)..
If u need more info: u can e-mail on dsr_80@hotmail.com or e-mail me if u have any tips!

i am 20 yrs old and have severe atopic eczema there are very few medications that have worked on my skin, betnovate as a steroid cream epaderm and doublebase as emollients and balneum plus bath oil.
Oilatum seemed to make my skin itch really badly all over as soon as my skin was in contact with it and for hours after it drove me crazy so had to stop using it. Another cream which worked was metosyn but was stopped as a prescription cream and i have never been able to find it since has anybody seen it??

How about vaseline, I've heard to stay clear if you can. My GP/homeopath recommended something very similar in texture... "Lucas' Papaw Ointment" (Carica Papaya, 39mg/g fresh fermented fruit), made in Australia. This, along with a special diet (formulated after taking a hair test for food sensitivites) has worked a treat on my 20-month-old son who at 2-5 months old had extremely bad eczema.

I've just searched on the web and it's available at http://www.youngagain.com/pawpa.html

I think I had every moisturiser under the sun and used every steroid cream including dermovate which I used on a regular basis ... then my dermatologist prescribed doublebase gel, with tacrolimus ointment for when my skin flared up.

i have just started using the oilatum bath oil in my 4 mth old daughters bath and i've found it really helps her, i wasn't sure at first but i persisted and thankfully it's paid off. Her skin is so much better and then after patting dry i apply a little oilatum cream. I talked to the pharmacist about the cream as the gp had prescribed the adult version and i was worried it would be too harsh on her delicate skin. The pharmacist said that there was no difference between the two creams and that they both contained exactly the same thing!!

I have used Oilatum bath oil for quite a few yesrs after a stint with Dead Sea Salt. This I find is the best treatment, along with Diprobase cream as a moisterising soap alternative used either during or after bathing.
The price is obviously a problem but paying the £60 up front for a prescription prepayment certificate is definately worth the investment.

Hi Carole
I have now stopped using the Double Base Gel as I found it too greasy but I found it left my legs very smooth. I might try it again soon but for now am back to using Diprobase Cream. When I was seeing the Dermatologist last Tuesday, I was given 10 tubes of Dibrobase (50 grams) and also a large tub of cream (500 grams) so this should last quite a while and is useful for going on holiday. I'm going to Spain for 2 weeks next Sunday and am hoping my skin will benefit from the sun.

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By Carole on Sunday, March 23, 2003 - 01:04 pm:

Hi Sarah,
Double Base Gel is available in 500g pump dispensers from any Pharmicy for a whopping £13.00. - It is white like a cream, but wobbles like a jelly (in the dispenser) and disappers completely on contact.- This is why I have a prepayment certificate (This costs around £30 every three months), that way all my prescriptions are free. When I did pay, my GP would write a prescription for 4 x 500g pump dispensers. So it is still more economical to go thru your Doc. And even cheaper if you're eligible for free prescriptions. (You may still be able to get your prescriptions free if you are a low wage earner - ring your local Social Security Office for a form, I think it's NHS1).
I love the gel because it always feels cool to apply, even in summer. It doesn't make you sweat the way oils do, and doesn't leave a creamy residue to be spread around. It doesn't interfere with other treatments (though they must be applied before the gel). I can even go swimming occasionally by applying this first - within five minutes maximum there's nothing left on the skin.
I'll be interested to know what you think of it.

Hi, I used to use Diprobase Cream but since it has been hard to get in the pharmacy I have bought a tube of Doublebase cream to try. So far it seems very moisturising and ive used it on my hands and face. The tube was expensive - £5.25 but if i like it i'll go to the doctors and ask for a tub on prescription.

Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of pageLink to this message   By Carole on Tuesday, March 04, 2003 - 07:58 pm:

To James
Try Double Base Gel. Your Doctor can prescribe it (I use a prepayment certificate). It's the best moisturiser I've ever used - I use it on my face as well. Creams make me sweat (and itch) and lotions disapper too quickly.
It can be used before and after showering/bathing - just leave it five minutes if applying before. (Any treatments should be applied first). Good luck.

Hi all,
my pharmacist has just told me that Oilatum cream is no longer available in 80g tubes, only the (more expensive) 40g ones. When you get thru the amounts of the stuff we do a bigger tube is handy - not to mention the fact that it works out cheaper.
Are other people being told the same thing?
If this is common and others would like to see the 80g tube back could you post a message here to support the idea? That way I could write to Oilatum asking for the 80g tube to be reintroduced and point them to the list here.

Thanks all,

axa

by sae - copied across

I'm using Diprobase on Sam throughout the day. I've also got a 2.5% Hydrocortisone, 1% Hydrocortisone cream and a potent steroid (for when things get really bad) from the doctor. To be honest I try to keep their use to a minimum. Sam has a bath most nights using Infaderm bubble bath which seems to agree with him (Oilatum didn't seem to make a difference). I was using natural sea salt which seemed to take the redness out of his skin but also dried it out. I've also had Piriton syrup but this seemed to have little effect on him - it certainly didn't make him sleepy.

Recently I went to a Chinese herbalist who gave me a powder to put in his juice and said to expect a result in 2 to 3 days. His skin does seem less inflammed but I'm a bit wary about what is actually in it, although I was told it was safe.

After his bath I grease him up with the Diprobase and put him in a cotton babygro so he can't scratch his feet. He usually goes down quite well but from about midnight he's then up 5 or 6 times every night. I can't just leave him because he ends of ripping off his babygro and scratching himself to pieces.

Dear Betty

Just a thought about bath additives - it might be worth adding them to the paddling pool too, because I was told that the benefit comes from soaking in the stuff. I don't actually use Oilatum, my daughter Efiah reacted to it, but we use Dermol 600 (emollient and antiseptic) on prescription. I don't think there's a limit to how often you can use it - whenever water contact is necessary, as I understand it.
Wishing you lots of splashing fun!

Sab,
As previously mentioned, we get Oilatum Bath Oil on prescription for our 20 month daughter. I don't see anything about soya on the bottle but it does have "wool" products in that cause reactions in some people.
I was recently trying to persuade the doctor to prescribe the Nanny Goat Formula Milk, which we still use as all other milks seem to make things worse. Alas no joy! And it costs us £7.95 a tin which lasts 3-4 days! But worth it to keep her clear-ish!

On Oilatum, I thought this might be of interest to everyone. I was using the Oilatum Junior cream for Katie (no peanut oil) and had to pay £4.99 a tube as it was not availabe on prescription and this only used to last about 5 days. I called the manufacturers to see if it was going to be made availabe on prescription and was told that the adult version, Oilatum Cream is exactly the same stuff and IS availabe on prescription. So, if anyone is paying for Oilatum Junior Cream ... don't!!

I haven't tried the Oilatum Bath Oil ... we used to use Balneum but it was soya based, so had to stop as Katie is allergic to soya. What's in Oilatum and is it avaialbe on prescription?

I use Oilatum bath oil and I find it extremely beneficial. I use the oil in every bath and it does help keep my skin supple. I also use Oilatum cream immediately after the bath and this helps too.
On the downside they're not cheap, but make sure you get the pharmacy version. These come without a fancy box, are twice the size and costs just a few pence more.

On a separate issue you may be interested to know that Oilatum Creams no longer contain peanut oil.
