    I had cracked, extremely dry skin, from a very bad skin infection contracted from one of my students. This had been going on for 16 months. I used the Aquaphor for two days and the results were unbelievable. I spent a small fortune over the past year trying any cream that promised healing, with no relief. I can't believe the free sample my dermatologist gave me, gave me almost instant relief.

    I used milk and honey mixture and/or honey and aloe mixture for radiation treatment. Both worked well. I did use aquaphor after dr told me to. I now have irritation and redness where I did not have before. It made my skin dry, red and sore. Going back to my original treatment. My skin feels much better with the all natural, non-petroleum, non-alcohol based product.

    In the first grade,my doctor told me to use this on my hands when they were severely dry to the point where they were cracked throughout. In the seventh grade, my doctor told me about it again for my eczema. It has done wonders in both cases. To this day, I still use it every night on my hands and lips. My only complaint is that it is very sticky and thick. Therefore, I only use it before sleeping ... Show Full Comment

During the weeks of treatment, an immense amount of the Aquaphor got into my hair, I find it impossible to wash out of my hair causing my hair to be sticky and oily. Have tried numerous combinations of products...ie. Dawn dish washing detergent, dawn and baking powder, plus regular shampoo, baby sham ... Show Full Comment
