I have a Stoma and when my skin is raw the recommended product to use is Calamine Lotion. Unfortunately this dries to a powder and stops the colostomy appliance sticking to the skin. A friend told me to use Friars Balsam which is not only antiseptic but is sticky when dry. This works perfectly.
Born 1954. Bad sinus problems as a kid. I needed regular steaming with Friars Balsam to get to sleep. Also used frequently to dress childhood cuts, grazes and bad stings nettle and insect. A must for all family first aid kits!
An amazingly effective product. When my eldest son was 18 months (in 1968) old he had a severe bout of croup. A very young doctor was called out and told my wife the child needed to go into hospital immediately. My wife (even younger than the doc) burst into a flood of tears, causing the young doc to change his diagnosis to steaming the boy with Friars Balsam. Worked like a charm, that time an every other time needed. Im recomending it to a friend whos struggling to recover from whooping cough.
I cant use the decongestants sold due to having high blood pressure. Friars Balsam is cheaper and works brilliantly but I couldnt get it at the chemists, pleased Ive found it online.
I was born in 1950 and as long as I can remember there was always Friars Balsam in the house. Leaving home and having my own family I have done the same as my mum. The last time I needed it was in 2004. When I became ill with a chest infection I was give things from the Docs. This was fine until I needed to get the mucus off my chest. NO ONE sells it any more and what they recommended didnt work so back to the old trusted Friars Bolsam B.P. OLD is best. It works and as it been going for over 60 years what more proof is needed.
My great grandmother used it and I tried it as as kid...there is frankly nothing that does the job as well let alone better and its so cheap its amazing it isnt promoted more! Herbs, bark and other things from nature, works fast without side effects to cure or relieve laryngitis bronchitis and respiratory problems.
