Or at least what ails your skin. Normally I'm not one to plug a product but this has given me such great results that I think anybody who is around anything that can scratch, cut, puncture, bruise or otherwise assault your skin should know about it. Doctor Burt's Res-Q Ointment is a natural salve made of sweet almond oil, olive oil, beeswax, cocoa butter, wheat germ oil, tocopheryl acetate & tocopheryl (vitamin E), lavender oil, comfrey leaf and root extracts. Anybody familiar with plants and their medicinal properties will recognize the properties of many of those ingredients. I've noticed that it makes my bruises and wounds heal twice as quickly as usual and things like Neosporin can't hold a candle to it. Stings like everything for the first second or two when applied to an open wound but after that is soothing and even the oils get absorbed pretty quickly; I'm one of those people who doesn't like a greasy feeling on my skin. Did I mention it does a great job on bug bites too? Beats Calamine lotion all to blazes both in how fast it takes effect and the fact that I normally don't have to reapply it.
What really wowed me though is the effect it's had on Samwise's scars. Because he was so badly burned on his face he doesn't have much hair there and he's been doing something lately that has made the halter he constantly wears rub at certain points; who knows what he's been up to when we're not looking. (I don't need kids, I've got critters. lo)l The other day I didn't like the look of one of those spots and had Res-Q Ointment in my purse so I thought 'why not?' I know it's worked well on cats that had a really bad allergic reaction to a type of flea collar and couldn't see any reason why it would cause Sam a problem. I also applied it to an old scar of his from the burning that doesn't seem to want to heal and I have been amazed at the reaction. The rubbing spot has scabbed over and is well on it's way to healing and the scar has quit weeping, lost it's scabbiness and the skin around it has a nice healing pink color to it. He's reacting even faster than I do and when I applied it on the second day he didn't seem to mind. The only problem I'm having is that he keeps trying to eat the tin out of my hand. LOL
