Bag Balm Ointment
It is an ointment, so it’s thick and greasy and does take a little bit of time to soak in… But man does it work. Not only does it soothe and moisturize but it HEALS amazingly.
It creates a skin barrier while also helping tremendously for chaffing, rashes, and irritated skin (including bed sores) as it doesn’t just rejuvenate dry skin, it also heals and prevents further infection.

Curél Ultra Healing Lotion

Eucerin Advanced Repair Cream
Free of any fragrance or dyes, Eucerin is one of the best lotions for cancer patients out there. Enriched with Ceramides-3, it’s lightweight and fast absorbing.
Aquaphor Healing Ointment
This is more like a salve (like petroleum jelly) as its major ingredient is petroleum. This lotion soothes, moisturizes, and repairs dry, flaky skin but also protects from rashes and infections.
Nivea Intense Healing Body Lotion
This does have a light scent, but it’s not overpowering. Enriched with a Deep Moisture Serum, and Provitamin B5 Nivea’s creamy lotion feels great on dry, cracked skin.
