Vitamin E for skin.
I brought my 4-year-old boy to the hospital for a gastroenteritis (now he's good), and he had, among other things, a fissure, for which the doctor prescribed an oil (topical application).
The commercial name for it in Italy is Vea Oil, however it's Vitamin E , 100%, natural pure oil.
It's viscous and thick, you can use it only one drop.
I didn't know anything about it but reading on the Internet, and on the leaflet, I discovered it has a variety of purposes for skin health:
-Dry or irritated skin, in each part of the body, even mucous membranes, and delicate parts.
-Rough and scaly skin.
-Sensitive, intolerant, or allergic skin.
-Genital or perianal redness or dryness.
-Being edible, it's safe and protective of the lips and mucous membranes of the mouth.
-Protective and against fissures of lactating nipples.
-Relieves itching from insect bites.
-Moisturizes, soothes, softens skin.
I can say that the day after the first application, the fissure of my son had a visible improvement.
And seeing this, I applied it on an itchy area I had, it calmed immediately.
I'll keep it in my medicine cabinet.
