    I don't really understand your comment. So, you've been using Eumovate for a year? And it is not helping? And you reported this and did they propose something else?

    Eumovate is a moderately potent steroid. Sounds like an appropriate approach. Cream or ointment?

    If it is cream, I'd call and ask for the prescription to be changed to ointment.

    If you've been using ointment, I'd call and ask if they would consider adding tacrolimus.

      This is what what was told to me by my DR. I WAS PUT ON CLOBETOSOL and have been in remission since 10 mos after my diagnosis. THESE are all VERY strong and need to be researched. Don't just trust your DOCTOR! Tacrolimus ointment .1% adults ( Protopic brand) -suppresses immune system and eliminates inflammation by inhibiting an enzyme needed to replicate T- cells ( should be used as a last resort, side effects )

      LIZZIE- My Dr said my LS was in remission because I have no pain, no itch, no sores, no tears and no white patches anymore. I take my autoimmune supplements, don't eat flour, grains or sugar and moisturize daily with v magic or coconut oil.

    I had 3 lots of steroid from my gp. Dermovate (Clobestol) strongest and best, Betnovate and Eumovate. The later 2 not so strong so needed more often. I find maintenance of Dermovate twice a week suits me.
