Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.I would initially use the hydrocortisone for a few days to settle the symptoms.Elidel can then be used (after discussing this with your PCP/Doctor or Dermatologist) for a more permanent cure.
Elidel is to be avoided if you have a depressed immune system or are taking any drugs which depress the immune system.
Yes,it will help resolve your initial symptoms,it would be safe and effective in the short term. Once the initial symptoms settle down Picrelimus or Elidel can be used.
