I was recently diagnosed with dermatitis by a local dermatologist and he prescribed me a topical medication called "Elidel", since he didn't think steroid creams were appropriate for the area of body that I am treating which has thin skin. Anyways, I have been using the Elidel for about 10 days now, and have NOT seen any noticable difference in my skin condition. I am concerned because it says in the instructions not to use for long term, yet doesn't specify how long it should take to start working. I would really appreciate another doctor's opinion on how long it normally takes for Elidel to clear dermatitis? Should I have seen definite results yet after 10 days use, or does it usually take longer to take effect? Please answer as soon as possible!
