I have found something that really does work (well for my boy anyway).  It's called Mrs Mac's special cream and is made by a pharmacist in FNQ.  My 6mo was suffering mild eczema in the creases of his arms and it had been getting worse as it is starting to get quite hot up here.  And he also had really bad cradle cap behind his ears which would sometimes bleed and was mostly always weepy or crusty.  I tried quite a few creams, but mum bought this for me to try and it is amazing. It cleared it all up completely in 2 days. I couldn't believe it. Anyway, here's a link to her website if you are interested.  It's not cheap, but it does work.

That's great you have found something that works OP.

I would have liked to read what was in it, but nothing on the website. What happens if someone has allergies and needs to avoid certain chemicals/substances?

Well I guess you can always pick up a phone or send an email....

a little harsh op? My kids have terrible eczema so I'm always on the lookout for new creams. Due to extreme dairy and nut allergies I'd need to know the ingredients also. I guess I'll pick up the phone myself wink.gif

Thanks OP for sharing this. original.gif

If you have a jar are you able to list the ingredients on here OP? We suffer from bad eczema

Sorry, I would but there are no ingredients on the jar. It looks very homemade.  All the label says is "Mrs Mac's Special Cream" with her email address.

As a pharmacist, Mrs. Mac should know better than to sell a product that has no details about the ingredients.

Yeah I guess it does seem a little strange. I never really thought about it TBH.

I didn't mean any harm to you OP and I think it's great it is working, so much so that I checked the link.
I was a bit confused by the absence of ingredient details, it is unusual. And unfortunate considering it is having a good effect original.gif .

Not having a go at you at all.

It might be worth anyone using it to ask for an ingredient list in case of reactions. I'm guessing it probably has fairly standard ones which would damage the mystique if they were on the label.

Yes, I always look for all the ingredients that go into a product...it's very strange the list isn't printed on the product.

#15 notjustalawyer

Posted 04 December 2012 - 02:22 PM

This sounds good... did anyone who contacted Mrs Mac have any luck getting the ingredients?

#16 Bluenomi

Posted 04 December 2012 - 02:32 PM

No information on ingredients, no Aust L or Aust R numbers. I'd be staying far, far away. She'd making medical claims without approval and I suspect it's never been checked out by the TGA. I wouldn't be using it.

The real question is what are those secret ingredients, given 90% of the moisturisers out ther in the market have a sorbolene base anyway.

Though I am the same as everyone else here - unless it's got an ingredient list I wont touch it.

I'd be worried it was cortisone cream!

It would be all kinds of illegal and wrong if it was a cortisone based cream. I'm fairly sure a pharmacist would not do that.

As I said before, I can almost guarantee there is nothing earth shattering about the ingredients.

I asked after the ingredients and she wouldn't divulge them but said it contained an anti fungal agent. I didn't buy any!

And the website looks awful and looks like a scam. I am glad it works for your family OP, but promoting this website sounds a bit irresponsible?

I was under the impression this was not from a Pharmacy but was something she had formulated herself and was selling on line.So not on a shelf somewhere.

It then depends what is in it, what the labelling requirements are and what her obligations are under The Code of Good Manufacturing Practice.

She certainly hasn't fulfilled her professional obligations.(she may not even be registered anymore)

I'm glad you found something that works for you OP. My youngest DD has eczema and I get a pot of cream made from my pharmacist, Can't remember what it's called the label has worn off but I know it's pretty natural with only 2-3 ingredients. Great when you finally find something that works, no more scabby and bleeding children  original.gif

Sounds dodgy to me, I wouldn't use it at all.
If she is not based in New Zealand I highly doubt that she has sold it and shipped it to New Zealand, they have such strict laws here that customs and quarantine wouldn't allow it in not knowing what the ingredients are.
