My dermatologist prescribed this medication for keratosis pilaris. Is this common practice? Anyone who uses this medicine for the same diagnosis, please let me know. I have not been diagnosed with eczema.

Default keratosis pilaris

My dermatologist recently wrote me a script for elidel for the treatment of keratosis pilaris. I have never heard of this treatment before and am a bit hesitant to try it. Nothing has ever worked for me before. I've tried lachydrin, finvine, and nivea cream with salicylic acid. I would be interested to know if anyone with kp has seen results from elidel...

I was recently given the same diagnosis. I have been to many dermatologists! Finally I found one that helped me with my skin. I have several problems: eczema, apparenlty now acne, and keratosis pilaris. Wow, talk about a medicine cabinet full of medication!!! So, what was my treatment plan? I am taking antibiotics (can't remember the name) - undetermined length of time. But topical - 2 weeks of cutivate, 2 times day (topical steroid) on affected area. Now elidel cream 2 times day. My skin has been pretty smooth! Hope this helps!
