Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! July 15, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Healing this ointment is very good, would recommend it to everybody. February 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeded my expectations! I have psoriatic arthritis and I am on a medication to control it called methatraxate it is used for treating bone cancer, I believe. I recently had rotator-cuff surgery and I am required to stop the medication for several weeks. I was pretty sure that my psoriasis would show up shortly after quitting the methatraxate, and it did "in spades". Before I had the surgery I ordered a jar of MG 217 coal tar formula, and I am so glad that I did. I am in my second week post surgery and I am completely free of any psoriasis, This stuff is Good. You will not be disappointed if you try it. December 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It Works! One of my sons was recently diagnosed with Psoriasis and put on steroids which were only helping a little. I ordered this cream along with the soap bars and it's working so well that he is off the steroids. Guess I'll be ordering more! December 3, 2013
