As cracked skin is symptomatic of other conditions, you should see a physician or dermatologist to determine the exact cause. As with any other lotion, it is not advisable to apply directly to a wound but rather, the wound needs to first be cleaned and first treated with prescribed medication. Then subsequently, once dry, GIAB can be applied over to protect the skin and eventually allow the skin to naturally heal, protecting it from external irritants.
A leading dermatologist in the Los Angeles area, Dr. Lisa Benest view on applying GIAB to wound on eczema :
“Obviously people aren’t asking to use it on a gushing wound as a first aid treatment. But in thinking with this, many patients may have dermatitis on their hands, or some cuts with scabs . I have no problem recommending GIAB on areas of skin that have some wounds. I wouldn’t necessarily use it directly over an infected wound. But not a problem over open skin.” – Dr. Lisa Benest
When the application of medications prescribed by dermatologist are of the priority consideration, yes, you can apply the medication first, as directed by doctor (onto clean, dry skin), allow it to dry and only when it is dry, apply GIAB over the top. When done in this way GIAB will help keep the medication on the skin and help prevent it from being washed off, which should result in the medication being more effective.
Gloves In A Bottle is most effective when it bonds with the skin cells of the outer most layer of skin. In order to do this it must be applied onto clean, dry skin.
Alternatively, if the medication is not of priority, then GIAB can also be applied first(on non-broken wound). After it dries, in less than a minute under normal condition, other creams or lotions or gloves can be applied. Most customers tell us that they soon find that there is no need to use other lotions and creams after applying Gloves In A Bottle. We have also heard from a number of doctors that many of the medications that they usually prescribe for use on the skin are no longer required after their patients begin using Gloves In A Bottle.
