A common mistake is to be too cautious about topical steroids. Some parents undertreat their children's eczema because of an unfounded fear of topical steroids. They may not apply the steroid as often as prescribed, or at the strength needed to clear the flare-up. This may actually lead to using more steroid in the long term, as the inflamed skin may never completely clear. So, you may end up applying a topical steroid on and off (perhaps every few days) for quite some time. The child may be distressed or uncomfortable for this period if the inflammation does not clear properly. A flare-up is more likely to clear fully if topical steroids are used correctly.
My foot & ankle specialist prescribed a compounded transdermal cream for nerve pain along the outside of my foot right below the ankle from toes to heels & it helps. I’m also been using it for fibromyalgia pain. I recently tried it for varicose vein pain & have found it works for that too. Very pleased with results. I am diabetic so it also greatly helps with diabetic nerve pain in the feet. Very easy to use, mine comes in a clear plastic container that dispenses the right amount for each dose much like a lotion pump. Just need to rub it in well. No mess, no pill. I think a physician has to place the order with the pharmacy.
