    Hi my names Annalise! And ive been suffering from eczema since i was 5 and am now 18. Recently for the past 2 weeks my scalp has been very itchy and is now irritated and burning, everytime i wash my hair and use a shampoo that is suitable for an irritated scalp. If i applied ego dermaid 0.5 to my scalp would it help?!?

    Hi, recently I have switched from the 0.5% to the 1% after my rash had redeveloped (mainly around the eye area), but when I apply the 1% around the eye area a burning sensation begins, lasting for a minute at max, should I be wary of this ? Also may I ask whether using a Sorbolene moisturiser is suitable, previously using it I felt like the Sorbolene enhanced my rashes/ lumps, but lately my skin has been drying out, thank you in advance.

    Hi Anna,

    We would advise you discontinue use of the DermAid Soft 1% if the burning sensation persists and contact Customer Service so that we may follow up on. Customer Service can also recommend moisturisers for sensitive skin as an alternative to sorbolene cream to assist with skin dryness. Our Customer Service team can be contacted on 1800 033 706 or

    Kind Regards,

    I have just purchased this from recommendation from my chemist. She suggested applying a moisturizer (Ken Kay) as well to lock in moisture. I can't remember if she said to apply it before or after the dermaid cream?

    Hi Amander,

    I would suggest applying the DermAid Soft 1% Cream to clean, dry skin first, as it contains the active ingredients. Use the additional moisturiser over the top to lock in moisture.

    Kind Regards,
    The Ego Team
