Ouch! So I bought some at Walgreens for $5. It is glycerin rich and it does work very well at healing cracked skin.
Brian, I didn't get the bargain price, but I'm paying more for the convenient, purse size tube that I can carry everywhere. People on immunosuppressants have to wash their hands all the time, and need moisturizer that is portable.
I don't think I want to drink any, but it does help my fingers. :)
