Bag balm has been working for my husband. But it is very greasy. I am going to pick up some of the advanced therapy dry skin treatment for him to try! Thanks!

this is very thick stuff like a gel it only takes a very small dab and rub in and if possible put on gloves to allow it to soak into the skin let me know if it works...

The best thing I have found recently is Lubriderm Shea & cocoa butter. The cracking and peeling is a mess and sore.
