    I have used Bag Balm for a long time on my feet which take a lot of abuse in walking and running. I love how it makes my feet feel but my only complaint is the smell. I try not to use unless I will be putting shoes on so no one smells it. I don't know what is in it but I sure wish someone would think to add peppermint oil or something to make it more pleasant to the nose.

    Wow, Judy, I'll look into that product. I use "Working Hands" for my fisher dermatitis which hits twice a year every year. Early Spring and Winter.

    I work in a pharmacy we sell a lot of it, the men really like it that work in garages,& the construction workers there hands are all cracked and like leather when they use this it is like a miracle,they are never without it,plus we have a number of women come in for it.When people come to the pharmacy and want a recommendation I always direct them to Bag Balm for their dry cracked hands Over the years I have had many come thru and say thanks for the recommendation that it has worked for them.

    Neet makes a foot balm for this and so does Dr Scholl, they both have an ingredient that does the trick. So if the balm has the same ingredient it should work.

    I want to try using it but would love some input!
