I thought I would share a discovery that I made. This is not a review sponsored by anyone, nor am I giving anything away. Sorry!
I have had several dry, scaly, itchy, bumpy patches on my hands for about a year. At first I thought they were hives from some allergen, but they stayed and stayed. Then they became scaly and really itchy and really UGLY. After much research, I thought it must be eczema, though I did not get it diagnosed by a doctor. And they itched! Somedays, I wanted to tear my skin off because it itched so bad.
I tried SO many creams, including expensive eczema creams, Benadryl cream, hydrocortisone cream and anything I could think of that might help. Nothing cleared it up. The best result I got from anything was that it itched a little less. I thought it must be something else, so was thinking about finally going to a dermatologist.
After about a week of daily use, I noticed that the itchy patches on my hands weren't so itchy. And they weren't so red. I was beyond thrilled! This was the best they had looked in a year. I would have been happy if they stayed at that level as they were less itchy, less red, less scaly and less noticable.
But they didn't. After several weeks, the patches were totally GONE! I could not believe it. I had tried so many things to clear this stuff up and all it took was a half tube of this relatively inexpensive cream. I have found that if I go without using this cream for several days, I can feel a deep itch where the patches were and see them starting to come back, so I won't be going without it at all. I have also been using the healing lotion with the same results. So I will buy whichever it the best deal.
I don't know what is in it that cleared those patches up, but it did something many, many other creams and lotions would not do. I love it! So, if you have dry itchy skin, or even eczema, try this stuff out. It just might be your miracle cream, too.
