Hi all,

One of the many side effects seem to be various forms of chapped, split, rashed skin disorders. I had a single sore from my first round of induction TPF and grabbed the old bag balm without thinking. I also have a dry sore spot in my upper nostril so a dab there too. It got me thinking I never saw anyone mention it for use in repairing and soothing their skin issues. Grab a can. IT WORKS MIRACLES.

I would love to try some, I have developed what my Derm doc called radiation eczema (my chemo onc laughed when I told her that and asked if my derm doc prescribed steroid cream... which she had). my back and legs itch almost all the time..and the skin on my back seems much thicker than before. The steroid cream did help I just stopped using it because I don't want to put steroids on my body every day. So I would realy like to know what it is, and where to get some.Thanks,  Ed

and here in Montana, I usually pick it up at the grocery store in the pharmacy part.  I use it all year for cracked hands and feet....so I'm a little embarrassed than I never thought about it for my nose, lips...and maybe even my neck.

Don't know where you live ,but I live in a rural area where there are Ranchers and Farmers and I get it at a farm store. I don't know what all it has in it but I believe it was invented for cows. A friend told me about it 15 years ago and everything that I have used it for it has healed it up. I hope you can find it and it helps you. You might want to ask your doctor if it's ok for you to use it tho.
