peeling skin

I have severe peeling on my palms and fingers. My fingers crack and also my feet. I have tried everything. Doctors have had me use hydrocortisone and ucerine cream with cotton gloves at night with little relief. I put lotion on 20 times a day and really makes no difference. I can not touch alot of clothing as I snag everything except cotton of course. I can't stand to touch anything. Help!!!!!!!!

Re: peeling skin

[FONT="Georgia"][COLOR="DarkRed"]Has anyone suggested or tested for a fungal infection? If it is one, the steroid cream (hydrocortisone) will only make it worse.[/COLOR][/FONT]
