  • Udder balm is highly recommended. I prefer a cream that has glycerin in it. I saw on a show today to use a cream instead of a pump lotion, because a cream - in a jar- has less water in it. The cream that I use I bought in a card shop. It has a little fabric rose on top of the lid. It is good for dry feet, also.
    Oh by the way, when my fingers split from being dry, I use that liquid bandage, and it works well. It is cleaner than using a bandaid, and washes well. When it wears off you put another drop on. It is also more flexible than a bandaid.

  • The udder cream is called Bag Balm and comes in a green square tin. You should be able to find it at Wal-Mart, drugstores, etc.
