Hi. I've actually been using vaseline day and night as well as a non prescription hydrocortisone cream a couple of times a day. One thing I find interesting is that Mike Pylon, who was recently healed was using a barrier cream as apposed to a classic moisturizer such as vaseline or aquafor. The one he was using was prevex. I think if u want to keep the dead skin on as long as possible maybe a barrier cream such as prevex might be something to try?
