Lidex review by 32 year old female patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Considerably Effective
Side effects:   No Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   dermatitis
Dosage & duration:   apply to affected area(s) twice a day (dosage frequency: once a day(or more), as needed) for the period of approx. 1 year, on and off
Other conditions:   tinnea versicolor on arms and legs
Other drugs taken:   ketocozonale (oral & topical)
Reported Results
Benefits:   The ointment kept the symptoms of the dermatitis(i.e. itching, scaling and cracking) to a minimum. As long as the treatment was part of my daily regiment it was very effective.
Side effects:   When I fell behind on the regular application of the ointment, the dermatitis would flare up within 2-3 days. Unfortunately, the ointment fails to "cure" the problem and only treats the symptoms.
Comments:   The application is very simple. Just apply the ointment to the affected area(bottoms of my feet) twice a day. The Dr. recommended I exfoliate the area regularly to remove any build-up of skin. Following that recommendation I would use a pumice stone 4-5 times a week prior to applying the treatment.
