  • The only thing you can't use are items that contain salicylic acid. Any moisturizer works. Get Udder cream it works soooo well on really dry skin.

  • most moisturizers ingredients can't get past the blood barrier so it should be safe. google it =) if you still aren't sure, ask your doctor.

    if you read the back label, most of the time it will say if there is any need to consult your doctor before use if there is any risk. if not, i'm pretty sure it's fine. but when in doubt, call your doctor.
