FMy little Hairless rat boy is all healed up and the scab on his back is now gone. The bath in Skin-So-Soft must have helped. I have had no skin irritation problems with my other older Hairless rat or my new baby Hairless girl. To keep their skin lubricated, I am rubbing a small amount of light olive oil into my own palms and then handling them so they get just a light coating rubbed in. I’m doing this for my Hairless cavy as well. I think the olive oil is a much more natural lubricant than any commercial human skin lotion that has all those additives we can never pronounce! So far, they’re looking good!
