LIPS-BURNS-DRY SKIN - What’s Good for the Patient is Good for the Doctor -
Dr. Lynn Solem, M.D.
...now retired, came to know about Merino products while he was a part of a 23-person surgical department in St. Paul, Minn., caring for trauma and surgical patients, including those recovering from severe burns. “I first came to know about the Merino products through a patient of mine who recommended the whipped moisturizer,” explained Dr. Solem. “Then I ran into Judy at the Minnesota State Fair and ended up trying the soap and the lip balm because I suffer from dry skin. From his experience, Dr. Solem recommends Merino products for burn patients, especially the lip balm for burn victims.
“Burned lips are very dry, flakey and peal a lot,” said Dr. Solem, "And the lip balm keeps the lips soft and supple. And Merino products are better than others because they moisturize better, last longer and aren’t greasy.”
Dr. Solem, now retired, was the Chief of Surgery at Regions Hospital, in St. Paul, Minn., from 1998 to 2003, as well as chief of surgery of at one of St. Paul’s largest surgical departments for trauma, medical care and surgical patients. He has been active in the American Burn Association since 1976 and served on multiple member committees.
Since December 2003, Dr. Solem and his wife spend several months each year providing burn care and education in underdeveloped countries, including Belize and Tanzania. Prior to attending medical school Dr. Solem attended college and medical school at the University of Minnesota, and served in the United States Navy from 1971-1973.
