    I have a small patch of dry skin that won't go away using just moisturiser. I have started putting DermAid 1% on it. If it is stil dry 10 minutes after applying, can I put normal moisturiser on top? i.e. cetaphil?

    Hi Anthony,

    You do not need to apply a moisturiser over the top of DermAid. We recommend against it, as we cannot know for certain what ingredients are used in other products that may or may not interact with the active ingredients in DermAid.

    Kind Regards,
    The Ego Team.

    I too find DermAid Soft 1% cream very effective for my dermatitis. Can you please tell me why I mustn't apply it to mu skin for more than 7 days?

    Hi Jo,

    Topical cortisone preparations such as DermAid may be used for longer than 7 consecutive days if advised by your doctor or pharmacist. The 7 day warning is in place for patients who have self-selected this treatment; if no improvement is noted within 7 days, it is possible that a cortisone preparation is not appropriate for the skin condition being treated, and it would be best to consult with your pharmacist or doctor.

    Kind Regards,
    The Ego Team.

    Hi so ive had pretty bad eczema since newborn (Im 18 now) and i find that your products are very very good. Ive tried SOOOO many different types of creams ointments etc and i actually am so impressed with the results from Dermaid Soft %1.Seriously nothing compares. The company makes so many reliable and effective creams that Ive bought DermAid Soft O.5% and 1% DermAid cream 0.5% and 1% Egoderm Ointment and Egoderm Cream. I guess depending on the severity of my eczema i can choose the right cream for that given time which is really good. I find that if i want the cream to quickly sink in i use the purple Dermaid cream and its really fast and effective. The pink Soft Cream smells so bad and tends to rub off but in the long run is better and last longer. Overall though to all those readers out there minor irritations try the Egoderm cream or ointment Moderate try 0.5% cream Severe 1%. OH and make sure you dont put this one on your face
