Reviews < / h2>
Larisa Belova < / strong> : I suffered from psoriasis for many years, the disease was especially inconvenient in open skin areas. I have tried many medications, but in the last few years I have been using only Akriderm ointment. Psoriasis after a 2 week course of treatment takes a long time, returns only in the offseason, then I spend the treatment again.
Eugene Trapper < / strong> : When I had a strong neurodermatitis with bubble acne on my hands and feet after work, after severe stress, I was in shock. But after visiting the clinic and making the diagnosis, I was prescribed Acridem ointment. Then I almost immediately got rid of this scourge. Itching was instant, and the inflammation completely subsided in 3 days.
Katerina Kulakovskaya < / strong> : Dermatosis appeared from frequent contact with water, sometimes fingers from cracks without pain can not be straightened. I bought Akriderm on the advice of a friend, the price is ridiculous – 100 rubles. Put it on the problematic surface before bedtime, along with baby cream. After 4 days, the cracks in my hands tightened, the itching disappeared, even no stains remained. The only minus is a hormonal and steroid drug, so it is often not recommended to use it.
