Default Flexitol, has the formula changed?

...
I wouldn't ask this here, but some of the folks on this group agreed that
Flexitol was the best thing for dry feet. I have been using it for a few
years, and until the last tube it was great. The tubes last a LONG time, so
I don't know when the change (if there was a change) occurred.
Unfortunately, I threw out the old box and tube before I noticed an issue.
The substance in the new tube just is not working as well at all. Has
anyone else observed this?

Thanks,

Jean B.


I think they may have changed it. I can't really see how this would help
dry feet. Unless there is more than one formula. I bought this for
psoriasis. Just got it maybe 2 weeks ago and bought it online. After I got
it I thought it looked familiar and perhaps I had tried it in the past. For
the psoriasis, it seems to be helping a little but really nothing I have
tried helps totally and they all seem to help a tiny bit. Anyway... When I
ordered this stuff I think it said it was new.

Maybe that is a different Flexitol product? Have you ever tried
Dovonex (if you can't look it up, I will check the spelling)? It
requires a prescription. My daughter's father used it for a
while, and it seemed to help him.

Not sure if I tried that or not. I know I have heard of it. None of the
prescription things I tried helped and all just thinned my skin too badly.
