Definitely worth a try!
on 1 August 2013
The GP had prescribed diprobase, which I know helps many people but unfortunately did not really help my son. With ingredients almost the same as diprobase and the look and consistency very close, I thought I would give this Zerobase a try so bought the small tube: however, also wondered whether it would facilitate blocked hair follicles & associated pus-filled spots that my son, rightly or wrongly associated with the diprobase...
Good news is that my son will use the Zerobase and has no problems with it - it is perhaps 'less thick' than diprobase and therefore a 'lighter' layer goes on, which for him made less itch etc. He has to put it on more often than some other creams he has tried because his skin dries out, but the fact is he WILL put it on!! The Zeroderma website talks you through other similar options and shows prescription availability which maybe helpful for some people.
I am giving it 4 rather than 5 stars because I don't want anyone lulled into a false sense of hope!! Every person and skin is different: I have 3 children with eczema and they ALL have their own product preference! But my son now has now worked his way through a 500g pump dispenser sized tub of zerobase and will wear short-sleeves... so for me, that earns Zerobase at least 4 stars!
