Hello,
I'm Shantal and I'm a moderator for this topic.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,
Shantal

Good evening,
I will be pleased to help you with your question.
Eumovate is very strong against inflammation and will bring relief soon. Until then you could help your father with cold compresses or ice- packs (wrapped in towels; too cold they would harm the skin). Other creams or ointments are not necessary.
I wish him a soon recovery!
