My Dermatologist prescribed this ointment for me in 1999 as I had developed bald patches on my scalp. My hair had fallen out to approx the 75% level. I 'buzz' cut my hair for easier application and within approx 3 weeks little hairs began to grow back. I recovered all my hair plus it was thicker. At first it came in a gray color(naturally brown) but soon returned to natural. Very please. Now in 2007 I have same problem again. Believe it is called Alopecia Areta. Hopefully it will work again. Just moved and need to find another doctor.

I developed Psoriasis in my 20's and have used it off and on for quite a few years. It usually clears it up after a few applications and is usually several months before it shows up again. I found that the gel works much better for me.

the treatment seems to reduce some of the redness but does not completely rid me of the disease

I've tried many over the counter skin ointments.. they only made it worse.. including hydracortisone.. this is the only product that works

I used this medication by mistake for chronic ear wax buildup 4 years ago. Got it mixed up with the one I should have used. Believe it or not, I have never had ear was issues in my ears again! Amazing...
