Geri-Hydrolac (ammonium lactate) for Dry Skin: "I'm Back Of Being A Healthy; Attractive' African American Woman! Because Four Years Ago, My World Was Turned Up-Side Down. How So? A Brown Recluse Spider Bit Me!! And, It Left An Ugly Big Scar Patch On The Right Side Of My Face. I Tried Everything Over The Counter & Natural Remedies, Upon Reducing The Appearance, Nothing Worked! My Doctor Prescribed {Geri-Hydrolax} Lotion, Which Definitely Helped! But, I Need To Note: If You're An African American Person, You Need To Know; Using This Product, You Have To AVOID Direct SUNLIGHT! Because It Will {Cook Your Skin} Make You Turn Very Very Dark!! My Suggestion: Shower At Night, Towel Dry Your Skin, Then Apply The {Geri-Hydrolac} Lotion ALL Over, Because You Want Your Skin Too Look Even. Con't, Wait 10 - 15 Minutes Before You Put On Your Pajamas. 2nd Suggestion: In The Morning, QUICKLY RINSE Off Your Whole Body In Semi-Cold Shower Water, Towel Dry Your Skin, Then Use A Light Skin Moisturizer With Sunscreen Protection."

For Dry Skin: "I developed severely dry feet after moving to Michigan from the mid-south, and I was regularly getting large painful blisters under the dry skin. It seemed counterintuitive to moisturize the skin vs using moleskin or similar, but it works. I use it for almost all dry, cracking skin and it works fast, healing things up in a couple days. It burns for a moment if I apply it to freshly scrubbed skin, but can't find anything else but positive results."

For Dry Skin: "AmLactin 12%. Prescribed for dry feet, no complications like cracking, just dry as a bone since I moved from South Georgia to Michigan. I've had nothing but great results with it, worked in just a couple of days. I've forgotten to put it on some days and my feet were still smooth and moist the next day (or days, once). Definitely better than any Over the counter product."

Lac-Hydrin (ammonium lactate) for Dry Skin: "I purchased this for my son, who has a very bad case of Keratosis Pilaris (KP). This lotion is unscented, non-greasy and soaks in quickly. Best possible for an 8yr old boy. Applied after bath, once skin has dried, especially if skin was scrubbed or has any open sores, as it would sting those areas for a moment. Results of 1-2 daily applications were awesome! I was so impressed with how my son's skin was looking and feeling, I started applying it on my feet at bedtime in between pedicures. Wow! Great results again. Eventually, I began using it on my face, neck, chest and the rest of my body. My skin is now super smooth, has reduced fine lines, fewer pimples and dry skin patches. "

For Dry Skin: "Having had good results with alpha hydroxy products on my heels, I finally gave AmLactin lotion a try. Unlike lotions that just soften dry skin, the alpha hydroxy significantly aids the process of breaking down the rough dry skin so it sloughs off faster and better. Love it. The prior comments that AmLactin stinks has merit, but the slight ammonia-like odor really does dissipate and seems to not be noticeable to other people. I use the product at night so I don't worry about it. There is no stickiness, greasy after feel or staining. But most importantly, this smooths rough skin unlike anything I've sunk money into."

AmLactin (ammonium lactate) for Ichthyosis: "Amlactin was a life saver for me. I had tried everything under the sun. Couldn't stand to take a bath, couldn't stand not to. When I took off my clothes, skin flew everywhere. Big scales, cracked, red skin. Anyway, I use it all over my whole body, and it works. It stinks, but it works. It is too strong for my face. I haven't found a product for a face regimen. I am trying some stuff on my scalp. I have "cradle cap". My head always smells funky, and lately I have lost lots of hair. So, no solution yet for face or scalp. "
