Has anyone ever tried Bag Balm?

Has anyone ever tried Bag Balm?

My mother-in-law suggested I try Bag Balm...an ointment that is used on cows and horses. The FDA does not approve of it for humans, but many people do use it on dry skin. I'm thinking of trying it...

I tried Bag Balm. It seemed to help for a few days, but then actually got worse and caused a lot more itching. For me, pure Lanolin has worked better.

I read something about bag balm once saying it had a LOT of the same positive effects as more expensive medicine but since it is all natural, it can't be patented...

It's worth a try, but I warn you - it be SMELLY!

It didn't do my eczema much good (I think it's got lanolin in there somewhere), but it worked miracles on my mum's cracked feet.

Has anyone any feedback to give on the use of Cardiospermum Gel both on how effective it is and, if recommended, where I can get it? It appears not to be available from skin-shop. Thanks

I tried it, but it made my eczema more inflamed.
