    I developed Dyshidrotic eczema on my hands a couple of years ago. Check out: [@] Once it was finally diagnosed, I had to find something that would heal the dry, cracked skin without causing more blisters and heal those, too.I tried LOTS of things. Someone recommended carbolated vaseline but they don't make it anymore. Through my internet search for that I discovered Watkin's Petro-Carbo. Its a real MIRACLE for this condition! Absolutely the only thing that helped at all (they had gotten so bad it was embarassing) and my hands look totally NORMAL now! I put it on every night just before going to sleep. I keep it on my night stand and am SO thankful for this stuff!I hope this helps someone else.

    Better For Dry Skin Than For Cuts

    Unlike the other reviewers, I haven't found it to be effective on cuts. I'm talking about paper cuts and cat scratches, primarily. It doesn't hold a candle to Neosporin and also doesn't relieve the pain. Haven't had the opportunity (thank goodness!) to use it on a burn, so that has yet to be seen. Glad to have it around, just in case. What it works wonderfully for are dry feet. I put it on my feet and then put on socks before going to bed. They're as soft as a baby's bottom in the morning. As foot treatments go, this is very economical! The tin itself needs work. It is impossible for me to open so I always have to ask for help. Wish it came in a container I could use independently. Maybe I'll scoop it out into a different container.

      We use this for just about everything that you would not need to see a Doctor for. It is great on really soar spots on the skin. It takes the pain away and the soar spot also. It works good on dry skin or on the hands. I love it.

              We mix raw honey and the salve and put it on bad bites, we even got rid of a staf infection using the two mixed together. We also used a natural antibiotic if it was bad.

                    Thought this was the smaller tin, label on my old container was worn off, thought it was 3 ounces, but it was 0.3, so did not need quantity ordered. This size container will last two generations, but probably not effective as some of ingredients will evaporate over time.

                        I didn't realize this product relieves pain and swelling until I wrote an earlier review. SO, upon seeing 'relieves pain' and 'prevent's swelling' in the list of potential Pros, I started rubbing Petro ALL OVER the knee replacement area and then applying a heat pad for a while. Great pain relief and the adema diminished. The incision, the whole knee is healing so well... I can't say enough good things about Watkin's Petro Carbo. It has a vaseline consistency, but the Mrs. Meyers hand soap cuts it easily and leaves my hands soft.

                          Hard to find some times. But when you do buy 2. It is a miracle salve. Heals dry cracked skin over night.

                              I like the tin, I am not crazy about plastic containers or squirt tops. I use it every night on a patch of dry skin on my palms and it has helped.
