Thanks for letting us know your experience with how to apply nitro-bid correctly. It is so easy to get things wrong, isn't it?
I'm glad to hear that it is starting to improve, now.

I've been using this for awhile now and wondering why I'm not getting any better. I just chalked it up to not using it enough. I'll give this a try right now!

I am desperately fighting to not let this poor little guy ulcerate. I have a crack that is very very sore. At night I put neosporin with pain relief gel on it and a band aid to keep it moist. By morning it's a little better, but once I take a shower and it dries out, we're back to square 1. During the day, at work and all I forget to care for it, and when the Raynauds attacks come, and the tip is purple, the crack looks a little shiny. So I real quick warm it and so far so good, but it is threatening. I sooooooo don't want an ulcer or , gangrene again!!! I lost the tip of a finger two years ago over an extremely painful 8 months, it was horrible!! I became immune to all pain killers and wound up on a pain medication patch. During that time I was alo hospitalized for a thoracic sympathectomy and a heart attack! Anyway, enough about me...I need to think positively an imagine pink happy healthy fingers. peace everyone, hallelujah, sping is coming!!
