    Thanks for the chat

    Mary

    Ozonol can be bought OTC at any drug store here in Ontario Canada
    It is made by Bayer Inc. Toronto Ontario
    Ask your local Pharmacy

    I use it for everything
    It will not sting on any cut and also prevents dressing from sticking
    Major use is for small cuts, skin irritations. minor burns, insect bites, chafing , and chapping
    Old remedy but it works all the time
    Hope this is helpful
    Cost about $ 6.00 canadian

    Thanks for the information. I will track it down and try it. Still love my Soft-E-Lotion though. I have yet to find any other lotion with such high amounts of antioxidnats in them.

    Well, off to work.

    Thanks,
    Mary

    I was just talking with a relative that is pregnant and I had told her about that Soft-E-Lotion I used. She is getting a few stretch marks and is in her 2nd tri-m at this time. She has started using the lotion adn she said it has reduced the appearance of her stretch marks and that no new ones are coming out! Just though I would share in case any of you were pregnant or had some exsiting pregnancy scars or stretch marks.

    Have a good week all,
    Mary

    Hello; hope this helps:
    try washing your hands with lukewarm rather than hot water and when drying use a dabbing/blotting action. Might be worth badgering your employer for a softer and more absorbent make of disposable towel if that's an option.
    Sorry if this is blindingly obvious-and don't forget the cream!

    I didn't read through all the posts, so I hope this isn't a repeat, but I have found that my hands are helped a ton by The Body Shops Body Butter. It isn't petroleum or mineral oil based, so you could use it at work, but I just put it on AM and PM. I am currently using the blueberry scent, very nice! My skin survives work and my nails grow in so nicely now, no cracking or splitting!

    Guys, I may be repeating what has already been said, but do be careful with your lotions at work. I admit I haven't researched this myself, but our infection control nurse has said that some lotions can impair the integrity of the glove and cause micro-tears that may admit pathogens to your poor, broken hands. BTW: I did wind up with a hard to treat infection to a cracked finger previously- with the same resistant bug my patient had! And yes, I WAS wearing gloves. I don't want any of you to go through what I did! :kiss
