Ketoconazole Cream 2% works

Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum. It really breaks my heart to hear all your stories and struggles...I myself have been struggling with eczema for about 12 years. I got it 1 year in while serving in the military, no one in my family has it. No allergies in my family and I have a huge family...seems I'm the only one! Some how I now have food allergies that I have NEVER had. The eczema is all over my face and I look like this :oops: RED!!!! I HATE IT!! I was prescribed steroid creams from military and it damaged my skin on hands and face! I no longer take family pictures which is pretty sad! I've noticed that every time I eat meat I flare up, but the my doctor said meat is not the cause. I tried it again and immediately my face flared up so I don't know what's up. I was prescribed Ketoconazole cream 2% on for my face, and guess what it worked the bumps are gone some redness is still there but I can work with that. I'm terrified though!! has anyone ever used Ketoconazole for a long period of time? Is there any side effects like thinning of skin or something urgent? I wish I would have found this website when I was prescribed steroids and it would have saved me a whole lot of heart ache!!!

Yes, Ketoconazole cream helped me so much on my face!

The number 1 topical cure I would say.

I used nizoral and also daktarin gold (ages ago when it had ketoconazole in!)

If you want to hit it from three angles then do Nizoral cream for topical, Low-Fodmap or low-carb for diet and then Elixa for your probiotic supplement.

I've used 3 types of Nizoral cream. One was gritty (some generic brand I bought abroad). Daktarin Gold is out of production now i think. Nizoral 2% cream I get via prescription :)
