Take Care of Yourself – by Mike Iaconelli

Here’s an excerpt from Dr. Dan’s partner Mike Iaconelli’s weekly column in Bassmaster.com.

We spend a huge amount of time out in the sun. I’ve been told that skin cancer is a leading cause of death for people in our business. Much of it could be avoided if we just took the time to protect ourselves.

You’ll notice that many of the photographs you see on this site and others show anglers covered from head to toe. We wear gloves, hats with sun capes, long pants and sun buffs. There’s a reason for that. Overexposure to the sun is not healthy. There’s nothing manly about sunburn.

Some anglers have said they don’t want to wear all that clothing. They think it’s probably hot and uncomfortable. If you buy good stuff, it won’t bother you at all. I wear it all the time without any discomfort. Most of the time I don’t even know I’m wearing it.

The final thing about skin care is to always use some form of sunblock. Make it a part of your morning grooming routine before you leave your room or your home. I do. Use whatever brand you want but make sure it’s a first-class product. I use Doctor Dan’s. I’m well satisfied with it.

True Stories: Mosquito Allergies

This month’s true story comes from Cecilia Henson, who has long suffered from allergic reactions to mosquito bites.

Hi, my name is Cecilia Henson and this message is regarding the Dr. Dan’s Anti-itch Stick and how it has helped me immensely these last few days. I was relaxing in the backyard with my friend, Danny Devries, when I abruptly started to itch my leg and I immediately knew I had been bit by a mosquito. Being allergic to them, I suffer all summer long with tennis ball sized swells on my legs that are consistently itching for days. Normally, I take a Benadryl and rub cortisone cream on the bumps almost hourly while resisting the urge to itch. So, I asked Danny if he had any cortisone that I could use and, surprisingly enough, he gave me the Anti-itch Stick. Never having heard of Dr. Dan’s products before, I was skeptical but very relieved and desperate at the same time. I rubbed the Anti- itch stick on all three mosquito bites and it worked instantly, alleviating both the itch and the swelling. I was in complete disbelief! Nothing has ever worked this well. I will always continue to purchase Dr. Dan’s from now on and recommend it to everyone I know.

Got a true story of your own? We’d love to hear it! Leave it in the comments, or send us an email at info@drdanslipbalm.com.

It’s your day in the sun, don’t let sunburn ruin it!

Check out the Dr. Dan’s difference: we applied Dr. Dan’s NEW SunStick SPF30 to one half of this leg, and a leading competitor’s SPF to the other. Dr. Dan’s kept the skin healthy and protected, while the leading competitor left the skin burnt and blistered.

True Stories: Lip Licking

Just as adults have chapped lips, children can also have problems with dry, painful lips. We have all seen children with the red ring around their lips. That red ring comes from children repeatedly licking their lips. In an effort to keep their lips moist, they lick them over and over. This tends to make the problem worse by producing a red, dry, painful ring around their lips. No matter what you try, it just doesn’t seem to go away including Vaseline and regular lip balms.

The patient seen here no longer suffers from a red ring thanks to CortiBalm. With Dr. Dan’s CortiBalm, those red lips were gone in just 2 to 3 days. Within 24 hours, CortiBalm begins to relieve the pain, itching and redness, reducing the need to repeatedly lick your lips. Then CortiBalm keeps on working to help moisten and heal the skin, solving the problem of the red ring from lip licking.
