The cream has removed a little bit but need a stronger cream it looks like.. What are you recommendations?.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Dominique--got it. Does look like a significan eczema condition. As for the strongest topical medication, you should try eithert acrolimus or piimecrolimus cream--these are the strongest anti-inflammatory prescription creams available.

Ok what does a significan eczema condition mean?. A serious one?..

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
It just looks like an inflammatory type of eczema--not serious in the sense of cancer or anything like that but it can be resistent to the usual cortisone creams
