I have been using this for a while and the itching has stopped and my skin is in lovely condition. I would recommend this cream.
I recently was recovering from an infection and one of the symptoms was a small rash over my arms and legs. This was very itchy and no matter how much I tried, I found myself scratching. This product is just perfect. A small amount of the lotion rubbed over the rash stopped the itching within a couple of minutes, and the effect lasted for two or three hours. I would say it stopped me scratching and hastened the healing time for the rash. I now keep it in the medicine cabinet.
This is an amazing product. I have been battling an ongoing eczema issue, situated just at the back of my neck. I know this product isn't particularly meant for eczema, but just a little bit of this and the itching stopped completely for hours . It was absolutely fantastic on that area + it wasn't greasy or staining. I didn't give this the full 5 star because it took a while to be delivered, but this was mainly due to the fact that it was sent from the US.
Really great product for soothing bites and prickly heat. A pity it's not available in the UK (I did contact Johnson & Johnson who have no plans to sell this product in the UK market).
I have MS and use a FES (Functional Electrical Stimulation) device to combat drop-foot and improve walking speed and balance. However, this device involves attaching 2 electrodes to outside of calf and front of shin, which sadly causes severe itchiness. Had used e45 cream on recommendation of clinician, but relief was very short-lived and I'd frequently need 3-4 applications to get through a night. After doing some research, I was more than happy to give this cream a try in the hope it would at least be a better alternative to what I was used to. Well, this has been an absolute blessing!! Since I started using this cream instead of the e45, I need to apply a much smaller amount to enjoy complete relief from itchiness for hours at a time instead of minutes. A real shame that the NHS clinicians never even mentioned this as a possible treatment. Looking forward to telling them that I found a much better alternative without their help !!
I have had a virus called Lichen Planus for the last year. It appears from nowhere & affects your feet & wrists & is extremely itchy. I have had steroid cream which keeps the condition from reaching a situation where it is too uncomfortable to walk. However, my sister was in the USA this summer & was bitten by insects & was given Aveeno which appears to calm skin reactions from insects/nettles & other plants that can give you an allergic reaction so she suggested that I I bought a bottle & can honestly say that my skin is 'quiet' & not driving me insane from itching 24 x 7. I was pleased to note that this cream can be used on kids over 2 yrs old. There is a significant percentage of Calamine in this cream plus the oatmeal which is used so much these days for eczema
