Thoughts on betnovate and other steriod creams.....

Thins the skin? I think not. I have used it for decades and been smothered in it when I was a junior.

During the last couple of years I have had a flair-up of eczema, on my head and feet mainly. Nothing more annoying having had a clear run for years.

In May last year a pharmacist in Egypt recommended Telfast antihistamine tablets:
http://www.nhs.uk/medicine-guides/pages ... ne=Telfast
(cheaper brands are the same: Fexofenadine)

these worked well, and continue to work well, contrary to my initial expectations.

I have been taking them ever since and find my skin is much less irritated by changes in temperature which might have previously caused my skin to burn/tingle/swell/and annoy the shit out of me.

Also, now as my skin does not swell-up anymore (I don't get the kind of allergic swelling on my skin) it does not go dry as much - far less flaky vile skin. Its the allergic reaction my skin has to some environments which cause it to swell then shrink and this caused it to do dry.

Telfast for me works, I take one 180mg tablet per day - sometimes cut it to half a tablet for a few days and can notice the difference within 3 days as the itching comes back.

Worth a try for you I would say - ask you doctor. HOPE it helps you or someone you know :-)

Possible issues:
- taking a tablet each day
- seems to give me catarrh! (not on their list of side affects) I can live with this but maybe you can't!

I now take these on and off, only taking them when I really need to.

Other side effects noted:
headaches, bad catarrh in back of throat, over-sensitive to perfumes to a state where it makes me feel sick.

Now I take a maximum of: half tablet when bad - currently taking a quarter tablet per day (45mg), seems to just about keep it a bay for now.

And with Fexofenadine I have found them to be less effective than Telfast.
