I had dry itchy skin on my face due to changing of seasons. Cleared up in two days. Great to use on itchy bites as well. Really calms down the heat of rash or bite.

I've had psoriasis on and off on my arms and in my ears! This cream is the only thing that gives me relief and it disappears after using it for a wee while. I tried everything else on the market but it never relieved it like this cream does.

This is the only medicine that my doctor has prescribed that actually worked. He told me last week that they took it off the market?? If it works why would they take it off the market?

Was prescribed this creme for my children's mosqito bite skin allergy. Each bite swelled and itched intensely. Scratching the bite usually ended up causing staph or strep infections that then required oral antibiotics. Applying this locoid creme ASAP after the bite has resolved this problem. Have been to the urgent care 3X prior for infected bites less than 1 day old. This creme is expensive, ridiculously so, however for me it was far superior to OTC cortisone cremes. Not only stopped the itch, but prevented or reduced the swelling quicker than any other cream I had tried. No side effects noted in the children after use. Only marked rapid improvement.

This medication was perscribed by my doctor. I thought it would be better than the over-the-counter hydrocortizone. It was the same, but I am $50 poorer.

I have ocd and used to pick on my face when I was under major stress from a relationship and my face was so bad with pimples or rash, it was so embarrassing. My dermatologist tried many meds such as Retin-A but nothing worked except for Locoid LipoCream. It was like a miracle drug for me. Now I have been picking on my legs and have tried many topical meds once again, otc and prescription. I don't know why I have not asked my doctor for this one, but I will when I have my appointment tomorrow.

I have had eczema my entire life. Since I was 12 I have had it around my mouth causing very embarrassing flakes. When I was 14 my dermatologist prescribed Locoid and it changed my life. I have tried other eczema treatment including Elidel, but Locoid is the only one that works for me. Two days and the eczema symptoms are gone. I use this when I have flare ups to avoid acne from the steroids. It gets the eczema under control so I can maintain it through regular moisturizers.

Used it for severe chronic eczema. Locoid is the only prescription strength cream that would work immediately and with little effort. One tube of it lasted me over a year with how little I had to use it (because it works that well). The only thing I did not like was (with me at least) with prolonged use, my skin got used to it and it stopped being as effective. I recommend using a very SMALL amount to cover the affected area and only use it once a day. Twice, at most.

After using a certain facial cream my skin became uncontrollably itchy and red with very tiny rash-like bumps all over my face and neck. After a few days of using this cream my skin stopped itching and became less red. It took a while for the tiny bumps to go away, but it all cleared up within a week!
