    We can't know if all these bad reactions on Amazon are allergic or die-offs. You can do a patch test on your arm, as MrRed77 said.

    Default Eurax contains SLS Sodium laureth sulfate

    Are there other cromaton products without SLS?

    Hi,

    Ive stopped Eurax to test on the inside of my arm

    It was making my skin quite red and rashy - very very dry/tight feeling, so thought it best to test under arm (as I shouldve first probably)

    Had to put on quite a bit of moisturiser overnight/this morning and feels a bit better (Goldbond Ultra healing)

    I usually avoid mosituriser on my forehead if possible but seems alot better this morning

    ZZ Cream should arrive today/tomorrow and my Elidel will be ready to pick up today

    I don't think you should use Elidel. It will make your skin temporarily better and then it will probably become worse.

    callum_62,

    Please follow MariaSt's advice. Don't use Elidel. I have been through that path. It will be worse once you stop it.

    OK, ive got my ZZ cream now

    Im planning to apply once in the evening - what should the process be?

    Cleanse with Eucerin Dermatoclean cleansing milk

    Apply ZZ cream - let it dry in

    Apply Hyaluronic acid serum followed by gold bond healing

    Would that be the right order?

    if I was going to use Elidel, would it come after ZZ cream has dried and before moisturiser?

    Also, does anyone else notice a flare to the skin after showering?

    OK, todays the day I started ZZ cream

    Ive noticed that strangely I seem to be flaring up quite a bit in work - between starting and 1pm or so

    This was today at about 2pm - as you can see its really not a continuous rash bit really 'spotty' like - note its 10pm and most of these have gone

    Im using dematoclean cleansing milk
    followed by ZZ cream
    Then Gold Bond healing to moisturise

    I had a few drops of water onto the zz cream before i applied to only my forehead

    Slight tingly/stingy sensation but nothing too bad

    Personally I would advise ONLY using ZZ Cream, and a moisturiser if need be.

    Remember to apply ZZ Cream at night, and if need be, a moisturiser in the morning. Not in the night and not soon after applying ZZ Cream.

    so no cleanser?

    or you mean, only apply moisturiser in the morning and try and avoid at night?

    No cleanser or other products.

    Only ZZ Cream, at evening/night.

    And, only if needed, moisturiser in the morning only.

    If you have a lot of dry ZZ Cream and/or dead skin build-up, use a microfibre cloth to gently exfoliate those areas in a circular motion.
