Holistic: Re-grow elbow callous fur?

Mr. NaughtyBody von den ThunderBunz has developed some elbow callouses. It's in part because he's the size of a wooly Mastodon. I am not in the USA and need an herbal, holistic kinda solution for this, as I cannot get USA brand name stuff here. What will help the fur grow back? Anything? Vitamin E oil? Anything herbal? <span style="color: #CC0000">Has anyone ever had success in getting the fur to re-grow?</span>

I heard something called Bee Balm is good for mastiff callouses so it should be good for GS.

Please bear with my stupid questions. This old dog is learning new tricks. lol.

Actually, the callouses are soft, so I am not worried about them-- I just want fur re-growth! Anyone know what helps with the fur re-growth?

Biotin maybe? Or a product with a touch of zinc with biotin. Biotin is very safe, zinc you don't want too much for too long, it gets out of balance with copper.
