Zyrtec and cream ingredients

I have been diagnosed with eczema.  I cm chemically sensitive and find many creams irritating.  I searched on-line to find out the ingredients in pramasone and eletone and could find nothing.  I received samples of these from a dermatologist and without the ingredients.  I am unable to find them on the web.  Is there a site open to the public that lists ingredients?

I was also advised to take Zyrtec and wondered if Zyrtec had any more benefit for skin reactions thank Claritin.  Claritin didn't help at all.   Two dermatologists suggested Zyrtec over Claritin .  I hesitate to try the Zyrtec as I took it once a few years ago and promptly feel into a deep sleep.  If it is better for the skin than Claritin can it be taken at night and do any good?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hi,

You could consult a skin specialist and try some local application steroid creams and moisturizers if anti-histamine medications cause side effects in your case.

For mild-moderate eczema a weak steroid may be used (e.g. hydrocortisone or desonide), whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid (e.g. clobetasol propionate, fluocinonide).

Eczema can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Moisturizing is one of the most important self-care treatments for sufferers of eczema. Keeping the affected area moistened can promote skin healing and relief of symptoms.

I use Zyrtec for my eczema. It helps a lots.  I mean a lots.
It's also last longer. It last for two days.
Howver, it does make you feel sleepy little bit.
Go for Zyrtec. It better than Allergra or Claritin
