I have had chronic eczema my whole life. I have tried dozens of options and potions to help my cracked and painful hands without success until... Restoral! It's thick and nutrient-rich formula doesn't sting at all, even on raw spots. I use a thin layer once or twice per day, and within two or three days, poof! Eczema is gone. If you don't like its smell (which has grown on me), apply it at night: you'll also get maximum benefits, since your body temp rises slightly, making the product penetrate more efficiently. It's a winter essential in my household now!
