    Are the ingredients listed here ALL the ingredients in the cream. I need to stay away from salicylates that is why I ask

      Hi Lisa, Thanks for your enquiry around Dermaid Soft 1%. This product is ​​​registered ​as a therapeutic good with the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration), which is the governing body for therapeutic products in Australia. The registration status of the product is indicated by the AUST​ ​R number on the front of the pack. Because of this only the active ingredients and preservatives are listed on the pack, being; hydrocortisone 1% (active ingredients) and phenethyl alchohol (preservatives). All other ingredients remain proprietary information, however I can confirm that there are no salicylates in this product. We hope this helps you. Thanks, The Ego Team

    Why is it that Dermaid Soft makes my eyes sting yet the normal Dermaid does not?

    • Ego Pharmaceuticals June 18, 2014 at 1:33 pm

      Hi John, DermAid Soft uses a water based preparation, whereas DermAid is an ointment. It is possible, that if the product is applied too close to the eyes that water based DermAid Soft may 'wick' into the eyes (like lipstick 'bleeding' along fines lines around lips), causing irritation. We advise you to not apply the cream too close to the eyes and if irritation still occurs, please see your pharmacist. The Ego Team

    This stuff is incredible! It is the only Hydrocortisone cream that I use for my chronic Eczema. It is soothing, rubs in easily, and reduces redness and swelling within 2-3 days of applying. I only use the Soft version (the one in the pink box), because I have very sensitive skin and it has the same texture and feel as a moisturizer. I used to use another Hydrocortisone cream but it was to heavy for my skin so my local chemist suggested I try DermAid. The only negative feature of DermAid is that it comes in a very small tube which i usually use up in 1-2 weeks. Its unfortunate that my Eczema comes back after I stop useing it so my only recommendation to Ego Pharmaceuticals is that they increase the size of the tube from 30 grams, to around 60 to 100 grams. Anyways, a 5/5 for DermAid!

      Dear Edan, Thank you for your wonderful feedback, we are so appreciative of you taking the time to write to us. Eczema can be extremely frustrating and personally stressful, and we are thrilled that you have had such terrific results by using Dermaid. Feedback is very important to us and we take on board all suggestions. Unfortunately however, whilst we would love to be able to offer Dermaid in a larger size, this is not possible at this time. If you would like to find out more, please feel free to email our customer service team on Thanks again.
