USAGE DURING PREGNANCY AND IN NURSING WOMEN
Since safe use of ELOMET Products in pregnant women has not been established, topical corticosteroids should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies potential risk to the fetus. Drugs of this class should not be used on pregnant patients In large amounts or for prolonged periods of time.
It is not known whether topical administration of corticosteroids could result in sufficient systemic absorption to produce detectable quantities in breast milk.
Systemically administered corticosteroids are secreted into breast milk in quantities not likely to have a deleterious effect on the infant.
Nevertheless, a decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or to discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
Ivy Chin: I used Elomet on my daughter, it went off within 2 days. I am now having some allergy on my face, am using it as well after recommendation from my skin specialist, and within 1 day, the redness subsided. Cetaphil is good as it is allergen free.
April Kirke: M y daughter used to suffer at the back of her legs. I used Emollient Cream by Avene. Sometimes when it was really bad, I even bath her with Emollient Cleasing Bath, and it fixed her. I recommended to a friend of mine recently to use on her baby, and it worked for her as well. Now my daughter is 9 and she doesn’t have eczema anymore, but she still use the cream in winter time.
Saodah Hasbolla: Do go to . We are using their products wen our boys got chicken pox n gotta know their soap is good for eczema too
Jess Loh: My personal experience: my boy experience it on his leg. Then I used eumora on him and he recovered after one wk. So far so gd. It didn’t come back. 😉
Naz Spice: Eumora bar is good. I’m using it now for my daughter. However when she was a baby, I used Avado products. Good. ESP d nappy rash cream. Immediate effect of stopping d itch. Even i use it at times when I break out in rashes. My daughters eczema stopped and I could finally remove her mittens…. They have a shop in millenia walk but not cheap.
Katherine Soh: elomet is good for eczema but it’s a little too strong for little children, in my humble opinion, so pls either use sparingly or opt for something milder. I’m 31 and i’ve lived with eczema my entire life and Myra’s right, it’s a combination of genes and allergies. Mine’s more genetic and comes with rhinitis. My kiddo’s 9mths and she’s got mild blotches too but not so we have to dive into using strong steroids like Elomet immediately. i just make sure we use very mild body wash n moisturise it regularly. The child is so young and already we’re introducing strong steroids, then as they get older, what next? eczema can be scary to most ppl, but when managed well and to be vigilant and moisturise, moisturise, moisturise, we’d be fine.
Kerry Chua: seba bath & lotion ph balance.
Saraneetha Rs: Cetaphil is the best choice of brand to treat this problem… it worked well on my baby.
Jamilah Mohd Yassin: Please try olivenol
Kelly Kc: Was told this is mostly genetic. Try compressing salt-soaked bandage (press and hold). Eases itch. The best kind of salt that has 84 trace minerals is Himalaayan salt (absorbed via skin). A skin specialist may recommend light therapy.
