I've tried everything I could think of with Bran...we have a zillion all natural lotions, potions, goop, etc. None of it worked for his eczema... Then this weekend, I was at Wild Oats and saw some liquid lanolin. I remembered reading that people use it for their wool covers so I picked some up. But then I thought that it may work on Bran's eczema, so I've been putting it on him. It's working!!! His eczema is starting to clear up now!! Unfortunately, the side effect is that those spots smell like sheep now (um, yeah....), but at least his dry itchy skin is starting to heal!!!
