I've been dealing with a (now-healing) fissure and saw your recommendation for using olive oil in a previous post. Worked like a charm on soothing the itch/irritation. Thanks!

I hope its ok with you mj8dokken that I jump in here on your post and thank PB4 also :) 

I have used the olive oil for the same problem and it works wonders. Also used it in the summer on their mosquito bites, took the itch away! I have also been using it as a body moisturizer and will soak my long hair in it once every couple of weeks, it is amazing. Thanks pb4 and you definitely have me hooked!!!

No problem Smile, we have to give thanks where it is due turn

Another awesome moisturizer that I've been hooked on is coconut oil (and it smells super yummy). I also used that with some success for soothing the fissure.

Hey guys :)

I'm so glad you've both found it so helpful...I love it and I still use it everyday as a moisturizer and just before bed I drink a tsp of it also (of course I use a separate bottle for moisturizing and for consuming)...I cook with it practically everyday.

Thanks for letting me know that you use it and find it helpful!

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
