Body Ointment (OTC Coal-tar extract and salicylic acid)
I've been meaning to add another 'two cents' worth to the issue of
P. I've had a few problem
spots of P on my hands that wouldn't improve with steroids, light
treatments, diet, or anything. I've found a little help in fighting the
tough P spots on my hands: Gilds
Body Ointment has mostly cleared the toughest spots that I've had on my
hands. It's a tar/salicylic acid-based ointment so it's a stinky
relationship. I wouldn't
recommend laying down with your honey right after application!
The upside is that after a 7-10 day use, it should offer a couple
weeks of remission without further use.
That's my experience.
Give it a shot.
Hope it helps. I gain nothing by promoting this product.
Response: Thanks for pointing
us to this site, PD. I’ve
heard of Gilds Ointment for years but don’t think I’ve tried it.
I use a compounded coal/salicylic goop on my scalp, occluded under
a shower-cap over night. GBO
sounds similar. Something else
for the arsenal.
Once you’ve read the contents at the web page linked above, click
on “body ointment” at the bottom of that page.
This takes you to more description and a list of the ingredients in
this medication. -Ed
