I put that on my elbows for psoriasis. It's a thick cream that's clear in color. If someone were to sit in a armchair like at a movie theatre after me, there would certainly be trace elements and they could come into contact with it. Bummer for Freddy if he's clean.

Someone on twitter said Galvis is trying to find the contact number for Braun's courier.
