    My 3 week old baby had a rash on his face & body which the doctor said was baby acne & that it was nothing to worry about. I on the other hand thought it was eczema and got my mom to send me a product called Epizone E which contains Cetomacrogol. I started using the Epizone E 4 weeks ago and my baby is now 10 weeks old & his skin is completely clear. No more bumps or dry skin, his skin is as soft as a baby’s bottom. Hope this helps others. Happy mom and most important a happy baby.

  2. My 2month old was prescribed Epizone E for her dry skin. It works like a charm. I use Epizone A to bath her with then apply Epizone E after baths. It has no parabens, fragrance or colourants which is great. I also use it as a daily moisturizer
    – and I’ll never use anything else.

  3. I was prescribed cetomacrogol cream for an undiagnosed skin rash. I used it as a moisturiser and body wash. The rash kept coming back but whenever I applied the cream, it does visibly calm the rash down and helps with the itching.

  4. Both my 11 month old and 4 year old girl has terrible eczema. Terrible flare up. Even thou I’d occasionally use steroids. When I started using EpizoneE the flare ups frequency became less. But the trick is to use it even if there’s no eczema. Daily as emollient or soap…… In winter as emollient.
    Thank u

    Paediatrician as well. Trust me when they are scratchy and itchy. My logic goes out the window

  5. i used this cream for a unknown allergy at the time for a rash on my face to go as a layer for a steroid cream and does the job every time i flare up!

  6. I am a 70 year old male and have been using cetomacrogol in conjunction with Locoid for the care of eczema on and off for the past 5 years. I apply the moisturiser let it dry and than the locoid (I ONLY USE THE LOCOID IF THE SKIN HAS BROKEN)
    I find that it helps to ease the itch, i apply this twice a day, in the morning and just before bed. After about three to four applications i notice a big improvement.
    I have found that if i continue using the moisturier after improvement water blisters form on top of the skin, which tells me maybe i’m overdoing it,so it takes me back to applying the locoid again.
    I have also noticed that if i cease using the moisturiser than it begins to go dry .so really its a matter of trial and error. What ive found is to use it sparringly.

  7. I suffer from bad eczema that can spread to my face and is unbearably itchy and sore. I noticed an improvement after just one application of Made from Earth Pure Aloe Vera cream – and I have also use this as an overnight moisturiser for my face which worked wonderfully for the eczema. So if you suffer from dry skin like I do, I wholeheartedly recommend it.

    My 4year old daughter n my 10weeks old daughter are both using an all purpose moisturiser called Epi●max junior & baby which also contains cetomacrogol cream and it has proven to be the best so far and it seems like it also fixes bruises caused by scratches from the ground as kids play…i believe it has some healing power.Thank you to the Dermatologists on sharing awareness..

  9. My 2wk old son got a rash all over his body an face. I had him at a Dr an the Dr gave Canex T cream to rub him out. After 3 days no improvement then I took him to the paediatrian. She prescribed epizone E to Bath him an Epizone A to rub him. After 2 days it was all gone but she changed his formula to pepticate as well which is very pricy for a 400g. My baby is happy and so am I an when the rash flares up very bad she prescribe advantan milk which I also use to rub him. I remember my mom used that on me an my brother when we were born with eczema

  10. Have been using cetomacrogol for a couple of years for “contact dermatitis”, very few things i touch does not cause problems, ceto is s miracle, my rashes cause extremely dry hard patches,so i buy ceto with 10% urea which i mix with plain ceto, that combo heals dry parches quickly and acts as moisturiser. People must be made aware how dangerous washing powders are, that is what triggered my dermatitis, now i wash my clothes in sunlight liquid and ceto as my soap, if this info helps just one person to realise where their skin problem originates then i’m happy

  11. I have been using this cream for about a month on an area on my leg which seems to be the result of infected veins . It gets very red and itchy. I apply often during the day and it does seem to help quite a bit. I am using Epy Derm O
