I need to wear medical compression stockings to my knees 24/7. In hotter weather my skin flakes badly and is very dry and can get sore (extremely raw and sore!). Few items seem to work but already I have found this soothing. It absorbs oils easily so I have mixed with castor, Jojoba, some pawpaw and a little honey. Within two days my skin has gone from painful to reasonably soothed. I’m now going to try refrigerating the cream simply because that immediate coolness will remove the heat that pulses from the skin area where the stockings go. Compression stockings can be great but unbelievably drying.
