I actually found this for five bucks cheaper at another store after I bought this, but even so it was pretty pricey... but soooo worth it. I was really reticent to put anything on my stitches, especially when I heard this had a "cooling" effect. I did not like the idea of menthol or anything of the sort touching my open skin. That just completely freaked me out and made my skin crawl just thinking about it. I was terrified, really. But I had no reason to fear. It was great and really helped the healing process.
All I can say is "Ahhhh..." That pretty much sums it up!
