* If needed, applying an antiperspirant roll-on deodorant to the residual limb can help you control odour and perspiration. Do not apply antiperspirant to any open area.

Another use was for a friend who’d had an allergic reaction to some cream prescribed by a doctor. It had a minute amount of peroxide in it and his face swelled up and was very red and itchy. He applied this cream regularly and was pleased to see how well it calmed his skin and within a few days he was back to normal again. He definitely attributes that to this cream.
