I have horrible dry patches on my hands in the winter. There are a couple isolated spots that get really irritated and sore (probably eczema).
Of course it doesn’t help that I have to wash my hands every time I turn around, changing 2 sets of diapers and taking Morrow to the potty (and then there’s cooking, doing dishes, taking myself to the potty…). You get the picture. My hands are wet all the stinkin’ time.
I’m trying to use rubber gloves while doing dishes to see if that helps at all.
But I’m also considering trying those overnight moisture gloves. Have any of you tried them? Do they work? I think you put some lotion on and then put the gloves on?
I have to be very careful with what lotion I put on my hands, as well. It can’t have any fragrance or dyes. If I use regular lotion on my hands in the winter it burns like crazy!
A friend of mine suggested shea butter for lotion, but I don’t know if that has fragrance. If so, it’s a no-no. (ha! a rhyme!)
Anyone have a good fragrance-free, dye-free lotion for hands they’d recommend?
Also, don’t forget to weigh in on the gloves! Should I try them?
