Reported Results
Benefits:   the treatment benefits was that the skin irritation did go away for awhile. I thought that I had been cured of the skin rash. It cleared my skin up and gave me relief from the rash.
Side effects:   It turns out it did not cure it at all but possibly hurt my face. It also may have made the condition spread to other areas of my face because in time I had other areas of my face where the rash was. The cream was only a temporary relief to a deeper situation. If one is looking for fast relief it will help but it covers up an initial problem that needs to be addressed.
Comments:   I saw a few dermatologists and each one told me to use it twice daily. I was even given different forms. One a cream and the other a foam. I was also informed to use them for two weeks and then stop. I did, and when I stopped my rash slowly started coming back.
