WARNING: PLEASE READ #7 ABOUT TOPICAL STEROID ADDICTION

 

1. Dryness

 

This formula claims to contain seven intensive moisturizers as well as vitamins A, C & E.

 

2. Allergens and Bacteria

 

Cortisone-10™ contains a hydrocortisone treatment that helps prevent the itchiness associated with eczema.

 

3. Rebuilding Healthy Skin

 

This formula is known as a ‘topical steroid’ because it temporarily strengthens the skin; however, in the long term this actually thins the skin and makes it more susceptible to the effects of eczema.

 

4. Money-back Guarantee

 

No.

 

5. Doctor Recommended

 

Yes.

 

6. 24-hour Customer Support

 

No.

 

Our Concern: WARNING!

 

Cortisone 10 is a topical steroid cream that contains the active ingredient hydrocortisone. For extreme, unbearable itchiness and discomfort, this is an effective short-term solution, but NOT an effective long-term solution.

 

In the long-term, this formula thins the skin, which leads to more devastating and more painful outbreaks that require a stronger and stronger cortisone formula to achieve the same relief…

 

...this is now called ‘Topical Steroid Addiction,’ which can go from stronger topical steroids to full-blown oral steroids with daunting side-effects like hair loss and hormonal imbalance.

 

When eczema sufferers stop using their topical steroids, they go into a withdrawal period not unlike any other addiction:

 

Their bodies cry out for the topical steroid, their skin turns red and swollen and breaks, sleep becomes impossible, etc.

 

Unfortunately, the medical community is slow to catch on and may only cite a few of the problems with topical steroids, but an increasing number of physicians are speaking out at the International Topical Steroid Addiction Network found here.

 

Ingredients: Hydrocortisone 1%, aloe barbadensis gel, aluminum sulfate, calcium acetate, cetearyl alcohol, glycerin, light mineral oil, maltodextrin, methylparaben, potato dextrin, propylparaben, purified water, sodium cetearyl sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate, white petrolatum, and white wax.

 

*It is important to always do your own research about any natural remedy and speak with a trusted healthcare professional so you can make an informed decision about your health.

"Stings pretty bad"

Posted on by Erica O.

 

The other reviewers warned that it may sting but the stinging will go away..I found that it DID NOT. For an extended period of time, it was extremely uncomfortable. If the skin isn't broken, it works fine. But as soon as it is (and if you scratch a lot like me, it will be) it burns. I'd rather spend my money on a product that works without the burn.

"This did nothing.."

Posted on by Sonny N.

 

I don't have horrible cracking bleeding eczema... just some dry patches on my stomach and chest that flake if scratched, but are noticeable b/c I'm very pale. I tried this, even following the wash and reapply instructions, and all it did was relieve the itching (which isn't too bad)... but it didn't actually reduce the appearance of the spots/fix the dryness. It was actually rather uncomfortable to have the waxy build up turn into little balls after a couple of hours, and even when dry it stuck to my clothes a bit. Maybe this is a good product if your eczema is bad to the points I've heard described, but it really did very little for me. I still have the same random rough/dry patches in the same spots. Sucks, man.

"I was hoping it would work better."

Posted on by Manny C.

 

As someone who's struggled with eczema for my whole life, I'm very surprised there is alcohol based in an eczema relieving product. This BURNS so badly on a sore eczema patch. I'm disappointed. Go for the CREAMS (not lotions) without alcohol like Eucerin or Aveeno. I noe use Dermaced with is light years beyond any other cream or remedy you will find....

"Consult your doctor first before buying it"

Posted on by Manny C.

 

I used this 3-4 times a day for 3 weeks and watched the eczema on my palms get worse. Maybe for very very light eczema, but not for me.

"Don't use!"

Posted on by Faye P.

 

My daughter was okay with the original Cortizone 10, but when this product came out specifically for eczema, she experienced a major hive breakout/reaction. Other than additional nutrients that were added to the eczema product, there weren't any ingredients that stood out that she would have been allergic to. Not sure what the difference is between the 2 products that triggerred her reaction. I rate this product as an "alert" for skin sensitive consumers.
