Are your hands just a mess right now with the cold weather & dryness? UGH! My hands are just a mess. I feel like I am constantly washing them. I am sure that is adding to the nightmare that is in the form of cracks in the skin along my thumbs. OUCH! I try to remember to lotion up, but I literally wash my hands so much I am not sure that it helps. Not only do we have gluten in the house, with my making sandwiches out of Whole Wheat bread for my daughter, but I baby-sit a little girl and after changing her diaper or wiping her nose, etc, I am washing my hands. I am currently using Curel Targeted Therapy Hand & Cuticle Cream. It works well, when I remember to use it or don’t wash it right off. For more targeted treatment on the cracks, I have been using Aquaphor or Bacitracin and then covering with a band aid overnight.
Anyone else have this issue? What do you use for hand care? All the products I use on my hands are gluten-free. I know that gluten can’t be absorbed through the skin and isn’t an issue unless you have Dermatitis Herpetiformis, but if I eat with my hands, that could be a problem.
