Elidel® (Pimecrolimus) - Detailing from Skin Therapy Letter


Elidel® (Pimecrolimus)







  • Elidel cream is to be applied BID at the very first symptoms/signs of eczema (itch, redness) until symptoms have been resolved.
  • If the eczema flare is out of control, a topical corticosteroid (and antibiotic should a super-infection be suspected) should be used as 1st line. It is then possible to switch to a topical calcineurin inhibitor for intermittent long term use.
