About this item

Description

Exederm Flare Control Cream is the only paraben-free hydrocortisone cream available in the US and was the first hydrocortisone product to receive the National Eczema Association's coveted Seal of Acceptance. We believe that eczema, dermatitis and sensitive skin sufferers are different. Eczema sufferers have very sensitive itchy skin and need to avoid even mild irritants whenever possible. That is why Exederm is formulated without many known irritants: no fragrance, no color or dyes, no SLS or SLES, no Propylene Glycol or Cocamidopropyl and most importantly no parabens. Suitable for adults and children over two years of age.

I had previously been using a prescription cream for my eczema flare and management — but to my horror I ran out! I was desperate for relief from a flare but figured I couldn’t “downgrade” to otc and see any difference. I read reviews here and reluctantly grabbed this off the shelf. These photos have one week difference in them! I noticed an improvement in my symptoms after one application! After a week of twice daily application my original spots are gone. TLDR; this stuff works better than the rx I had before it. Hooked and happy user!

I have rosacea and eczema and I experience extremely painful, burning, angry flares. This cream is so soothing, and it works fast! First pic is my eczema flare about 10 mins ago, second pic is my eczema flare last night. I've been using the exederm for 24 hours in rotation and I'm almost healed. I'm also thankful I can buy this with my FSA card.

Very impressed with how fast it healed my multiple rashes that I had. I was using Calmoseptine Ointment at first and I do believe that helped as well but then when I started using this lotion the healing process speed up and the lotion brought back hydration in my skin. It’s size of the lotion is on the smaller side and it’s pricey but I’d buy it again if it meant not having to deal with horrible itching

So far so good. It definitely helps to minimize the eczema bumps when you first spot them. Can't really say the same if the bumps already spread. But overall it's efficient enough to soothe the itchiness.

I have horrible facial ezema near my mouth and I have tried everything to help heal it. I would end up constantly reopening the wound even after not scratching due to the location of the eczema being in a place where the skin moved while talking and eating. I finally tried this product and within five days, the scab healed and my skin is recoving now. I do have redness but no open wound anymore. I am so happy I could cry. I have my skin back!

Literally within a few hours of applying this cream on my face, there is a noticeable difference! I had dermatitis six years ago and it came back a few weeks ago. I’ve been suffering hard the last week or so. Saw this product and the great reviews and gave it a try. My skin looks so much better. We’re having below zero weather and the cold wind was whipping at my raw face. This is a life saver!

I have never written a review before but this product is absolutely amazing! I had a perioral dermatitis flare up for the first time in my life and tried everything to get rid of it over 6 weeks…Antibiotic cream, regular hydrocortisone, aquaphor, etc. I used Exederm once and the next morning I noticed significant improvement. Two days later and it’s almost completely gone! I am blown away by these results and am so glad I saved myself a trip to the dermatologist.

Saved me a week of suffering: About once a year, my eyelids have a horrible reaction to some product or another (shampoo, face wash, eye shadow, mascara, serums, etc.). My eyelids become red, itchy, burning, swollen, flaky—it’s miserable and hideous and takes about 10 days to resolve. After reading that this cream is safe for eyelids, I rushed out to buy some. The itching and burning went away immediately after I first applied it. After six applications (72 hours), my eyelids are back to normal. So thankful!

This is the only cortizone cream I’m not allergic to! Literally a miracle. Never change the formula PLEASE. I have had one tube that had a little grit of some ingredient, but I still used it and give the product 5 stars because it’s amazing.

This stuff is amazing, seriously!! All of the sudden I had this flaky, dry, puffy line going down under my left eye. I had no idea what it was so I bought lotion and a new face wash only for it to look worse! Then my I asked my OB if he possibly knew and he said he wasn't sure but maybe I needed a steroid cream for it.. so I immediately looked online for over the counter and saw the reviews on this one. I bought it and tried it and it is almost gone after 24 hours!! BUY IT!!

Absolutely amazing product. As a hairstylist my hands were extremely dry, cracked, and bleeding from being around bleach + color plus being in water all day. My hands got to the point where it wasn’t bearable anymore. I did all the things like Aquaphor, Neosporin, etc and nothing was working!! I bought this product and the MG217 product and tested them on each one of my hands. This product helped relieve the itchy, scaliness on my hands within 15 minutes and they looked so much better!! The MG217 burned so bad and just made my hand more itchy, therefore I definitely recommend this product more!! It’s truly a miracle worker!! Before and after photos down below- these were taken 15 minutes apart!

This worked great the very first day. It does have 1% hydrocortisone but it's specifically for sensitive skin. I recommend trying it if you have excema. I use it now primarily for flateups. FYI: my dermatologist prescribed Prednisone for 10 days. Found out pred is not recommended for excema by most doctors because of its rebound effect. This happened to me. My excema came back much worse after stopping the pred.

I have never written a review, but this product deserves one! I have newfound eczema around my eyes. I tried repair creams, skin protectants, all of which helped but never “cured” it. After doing some research, I decided to try this hydrocortisone and my eczema was completely gone in 2 days. Like it was never there! Buy this!
