Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product been dealing with dermatitis for a while now and it was constantly a worry. the doctor would give me some ointment in a tiny tube with no refills and it was just a real hassle going back in there and getting an embarrassing check up and paying for all of that. this ointment is awesome and i plan on ordering another jar soon. apply small amount to the problem areas after a shower and the issue will be gone in a week or two, albeit temporarily as the condition is chronic, it provides great relief from the itching, discomfort and unsightly patches on the skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't laugh, me and the dog August and September in the Mid-west is miserable for allergies. We are still picking green beans and tomatoes, so my the skin on my arms, even with sleeves gets very irritate. I can very thinly put this on under my sleeve as a protectorate before working in the garden and no issues at all. Even keeps gnats and bugs away. Now here is the no laughing part. Our mixed breed dog is strong gene pool Australian Shepard, but this time of year she used to get terrible skin allergies. This product keeps her belly clean from break outs, also the fronts and backs of her legs. The best benefit of all, if she gets a little itchy, she won't even try to chew she comes to me and whines for her coal tar lotion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All redness and scales disappeared within days! My son came over from Seattle, WA recently to visit Coeur d Alene, ID where his friends and myself live. His whole lower legs were in flames, red and scaly in appearance with psoriasis. He has had this condition for several years off and on. So recently while visiting my friend in VT she took me to your store, The Vermont Store. I purchased a jar of MG217 coal tar ointment for my son knowing that he would probably have an outbreak on his legs and wanted him to try this product. Wow! within two days the redness and scaly appearance were contained and the scales were drying up and became smaller. By the time he left a week later from Coeur d Alene, ID his legs were clear! This product works!!!! Thank you and he does also thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The absolute best solution I have found for my dermatitis. I have pustular dermatitis which breaks out on the soles and sides of my feet and the palms of my hands. The prescription I was using from the dermatologist was not helping at all and then I read about the coal tar ointment and ordered it. After the first day I was amazed, my feet no longer look like they belong on a scaly alligator and after 2 weeks of use I am almost ready to wear sandals again which I have been unable to do for the past 5 years. I will never be without this product again.
