Question Extremely dry hands...

[FONT="Garamond"][COLOR="RoyalBlue"]Hi...Just wondering if anyone here could possibly give me a few ideas to conquer my extremely dry hands. They get so dry that it looks like I have a million paper cuts and they bleed. I have kids in diapers, so I am always washing my hands. This usually only happens in the Winter time when the temps drop into the 20's. Some lotions really burn when I put them on. I haven't really found anything yet that really helps. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! [/COLOR][/FONT]

Re: Extremely dry hands...

That's the million dollar question! Know what you are going through; mine are also sore, red, dry and look and feel like sandpaper.
Really nothing to get rid of the problem. I know many use cornhuskers lotion or eucerin. These don't seem to burn so much.
Also, at night, good old vaseline!! I put it on my feet, hands, and face.
Lotion, lotion, lotion!!! A good thick one, the less water it contains the better.
