I had an excema breakout on my left hand that refused to go away. I thought perhaps I had burned it somehow, as I had not experienced excema before. I tried other creams and lotions (I didn't want to have to mail order the TriCeram, and I had other creams that claimed they would treat excema) but TriCeram was the only thing that worked. It doesn't have any perfumes or other ingredients that might irritate. The improvement and healing was immediate. I worked for Osmotics a number of years ago, right around the time this came out. I was told by many mothers that it was the only thing that worked for their infants. I believed them then, but experiencing it for myself made me into a true believer!
