Other more obscure options are Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream - go figure, people rave about this stuff!
Two summers ago, I spent a bunch of time climbing with Nathan Hoette and Heather. Nathan would be described as a 'wad' in the UK - i.e stupidly strong and good, like 8c/8c+ good. So when they both mentioned the name 'blastoestimulina' I took note. I only managed to get my hands on a tube of this stuff in Spain a few weeks ago (you have to ask for it, it's not on display). And I got the perfect opportunity to try it on Friday. I tore a complete pad off on Thursday evening while fighting through the 4x4's - this is normally an oh-well-no-climbing-for-neal-for-three-or-four-days job. Except I threw it on before bed last night twice, and woke up to find the pad almost healed about 50/60%. It still needs another day of growth, but I can say that this cream seems to work on my skin perfectly. Thanks Nathan and Heather!
Does anyone know anything else better for skin repair? Don't climb? ;)
Update 2nd December: Nige highly recommends Antihydral and I've just had an email from a very well known American climber to say that it works as well as the people say. Most importantly though:
"You still have to take good care of your skin. Filing/sanding/lotion/taping."
Update 2: You'll also see the post below mentioning 'cycatril' that is sold in France....
