I always keep this ointment around here. The only thing I've noticed that heals faster is Neosporin, and I much prefer the Burt's since it is almost completely natural, and also it is WONDERFUL for bruises! I use this on me and my daughter...it's really great with rambunctious toddlers who always seem to get scrapes and bruises running around! Cost is about $5, comes in a tiny little green tin. My one complaint with this product is that the tin is extremely difficult to open...I really wish they would change this.
