I have been dealing with eczema on the skin around my lips for a few months. I have tried so many different creams and I don't want to take any steroid creams (only as a last resort). Whenever I get a flare up, I use a thick layer of this ointment and I swear its the only thing that helps extremely irritated skin. The smell is starting to grow on me, especially since I apply it near my mouth and nose. Another plus is that a full size tub of Restoral has lasted me a long time now!
