Worth a try for eczema

I suffered from intractable hand eczema for five years, with chronic fissuring, cracking, and bleeding of my fingertips. I visited several dermatologists, and tried a variety of potent and super-potent steroids (clobetasol, betamethasone, desoxymetasone), immune system mediators, skin thickeners, urea ointments, and many other medicines.

I've finally controlled this condition and restored my hands to normal condition by smearing petrolatum on after my evening shower, and then slipping on nitrile gloves for the night. No medicine at all, and just a modest cost. It's great to have my hands back.

Petrolatum is not absorbed by your skin, and has no medicinal effect. It just seals the skin, retaining your body's moisture. Put it on after you bathe (or soak your hands in warm water) to maintain your skin's moisturized state. If you have severe dry skin, you might give this a try.

Vaseline is oft-touted as one of those long-time "oldie but a goodie" beauty products. I recently purchased for overnight use - to massage into my hands and leave cotton gloves on to maximize softness. It is a very think moisturizer when used in this way and I haven't yet perfected my nightly ritual of application, but it is affordable and I believe it will ultimately leave you with the desired results.

      Comments about Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, 13 oz:

      What can you say about this versatile classic? I have three small jars conveniently located throughout my house: nightstand, bathroom, & living room. I LIVE with this stuff on my lips, always have, always will.
      Recently I got a little over-zealous exfoliating my face and Vaseline instantly calmed and soothed the angry, red, irritated areas. I should mention that I also have SUPER oily skin, but this did not cause me to break out. I've also been using it around my eye area at bedtime, gently working into the delicate skin as well as my lashes. It seems to plump the skin and also makes my lashes look naturally thick & healthy. Great alternative to wearing mascara on days when you're going for the natural, minimalist, no-makeup look.

          This is a large tub of Vaseline. I might even use it to refill a travel size. Great for dry skin, particularly around the nose during cold/allergy season. I tend to use it with q-tips to keep down the mess and cross-contamination. Love it!

            Comments about Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, 13 oz:

            I used a facial mask which I had very bad allergic reaction and skin on my whole face was 'ruined'... I have very dry skin and every inch of them seems to be peeling off after the reaction. I tried to apply other product but none was absorbed and the situation is really bad. Then I tried vaseline, and the result was amazing! it absorbed directly after a few seconds! I think my skin is dehydrated for days and vaseline was definitely a savior. After two days, dry skins are gone, and it doesn't absorb in that quickly anymore. But anyway, after leaving it overnight, I do not have the trouble of dryness ever, and this is all I need.

            I have a very sensitive and dry skin. This works perfectly as a night cream for me. Yes, i put it on my face. No break out at all. My skin turned out to be so smooth in the morning. It's a little bit messy when i just put it on though, but i can't stop touting my face now...it's glowing and smooth. I won't recommend for day use, too messy. I also use it as body moisture, love it!

            As above, Vaseline maintains my feet to be smooth, dryness gone. Have tried less expensive brands, but they don't penetrate my skin.
