"My husband had cracks between his fingers and we had spent a lot of money trying to get them healed. We rubbed Petro Carbo Salve on the cracks and within one month they were completely healed and have not been a problem since. We use it on any sores we get. It's a wonderful healing salve." - L.H., MN
"A metal sliver was lodged in the palm of my hand and it was so deep that I worked for hours trying to remove it. Before I went to bed I put Petro Carbo Salve on the sliver and in the morning the sliver came right out." - K.N., ON
"I've endured severe psoriasis since the late 80's. Side effects from prescriptions outweighed any relief, and standard treatment just made it more comfortable to live with, but did not get rid of it. The treatments also reduced quality of life, as it caused weight gain and dulls sensation. I was totally skeptical to try Petro Carbo Salve. I used it on one bad area, just to test it, and I was amazed at how fast my skin returned to normal. Areas that had plagued me for years began clearing in days. The dark blotches left from previously healed areas began fading within 10 days. At the end of my second week, I stopped using my prescription, and now I use only Petro Carbo Salve." - D.K., ON
"I really love Petro Carbo Salve. I have had a condition called hand dermatitis for about six years and I went to three dermatologists who told me I would just have to live with it that there was no cure. I was desperate to find something that worked. I used it [Petro Carbo Salve] for one full week and after that week I no longer needed to wear gloves. After using it for six months, I'm happy to say that I no longer have to take an oral steroid or have to pay for the steroid medicine for my hands. Your product has been amazing for me in this struggle." - TG, PA
