infantile eczema

My 2 month old baby has eczema and his doctor prescribed mylocort ointment for 2 weeks. It made the problem better but did not cure his skin. Now the doc has prescribed atopiclair a non steroidal cream but I''m scared to use it because I read up on it on the internet and it had bad side effects for some users. The leaflet in the atopiclair box says very little about side effects. What other " safe"  options do I have?

Mylocort is a mild cortisone cream used to treat eczema in children. It is not a cure but certainly helps when the eczema rash is troublesome. Atopiclair is a new, non-cortisone containing cream for treating eczema. It is considered to be safe for use in children who have eczema. It is a very promising new treatment. I was unable to find any complaints from users of this product, only positive reports.As far as I could find out from a review of its contents it is unlikely to cause any harm.

Thanks doc, i''m happy to report back that 3 weeks after using Atopiclair, my baby''s skin is looking and feeling much better! Using Epimax Junior has also aided the healing.
