Mimyx cream for eczema-it's great!
I know a lot of moms here have posted about eczema so I thought I'd post about a new treatment we've been using. Since we stopped using protopic after the warnings came out, nothing has really helped DD's eczema. I was using Cortaid when she really started to scratch, but I hated putting that on her. About a month ago our ped gave us Mimyx- it's a prescription, but it's non-steroidal, and doesn't affect the immune system like protopic/elidel, and it's safe for children of all ages. Let me tell you, it is wonderful. DD's skin feels like silk and she's had almost no eczema since we started it, despite the winter weather. I would use it on myself if it weren't for the cost. The only drawback is the price- I have a $30 co-pay and you only get a small tube.
Just thought I'd mention this- hope it helps someone. And no, I don't work for the company. :)

Thanks for the info. My son has mild eczema and the cortaid is not doing the job. I'm going to ask about this!
