of course some people will see good results with protopic it is primary used for dermatitis. EC is in my strong opinion a form of dermatitis wether it be atopic dermatitis or sebrohic dermatitis or contact dermatitis its a form of dermatitis the reason theres so much confusion is because the location of the manifestation. If everybody just looks at the symptoms its quite obvious. Red inflammed crusty/scaly/thickening skin which is constantly getting secondary infections which is due to a cell which protects the healthy bacterias which control the environment of the balance between good and bad bacteria is damaged due to the condition of dermatitis.
IM CONFUSED AS TO WHY THERES SO MUCH CONFUSION. ITS SIMPLE TRY TREATMENTS WHICH ARE USED FOR TREATING DERMATITIS AND YOU COULD FIND A SOLUTION TO MANAGING THE SYMPTOMS BETTER AND IF YOUR LUCKY FIND COMPLETE REMISSION OF THE SYMPTOMS.
