    Recommend a hand cream?

    OK not something I'd usually even consider but my hands are driving me insane now, cracked, sore and bleeding!

    Usually, I use Norwegian Formula but I seem to have suddenly become allergic to the stuff - my hands have swollen up, come out in a rash and are itching intensely; wonderful!

    So, any advice for a decent hand cream that isn't greasy so I can keep working after I've put it on?

    I get cracked finger/thumb tips and have had to have antibiotics a couple of times. The doctor recommended Vaseline.

    have you been to see your Doctor? Try and see if they can prescribe you something like cetraben comes in a pump tub. I have eczema and this works great for through out the day and then for the really bad days a steriod based cream I think the one i have atm is Elocon put that on over night and it will make a great difference

    Speak to your doctor - you might be accidentally making it worse by using the wrong creams.

    defiantly best to go and see a DR about it as they may need to send you to see a dermatolagis (sink specialist) i am in the process of it atm as i suffer with ecsma and seriasis
    and lately starting to break out in the same symptoms all over my body. not good when i forgot the medicated stuff, this week as im on a course.

    Bodyshop stuff is brilliant. Pop into your local shop and they'll be able to advise you better, but they do a hemp hand cream which is just amazing, but they have many other things they could probably advise you about too.

    I really would go and see a doctor. E45 cream - which can be a bit greasy and so might be better at night- works wonders on cracked and sore skin and has no additives or anything

    Diprobase - you can buy it over the counter.

    Another vote for E45. Don't bother with anything else. And always wash your hands with warm water not cold and make sure you dry them thoroughly by patting them with the towel not rubbing them.

    Again, another vote for E45 here. I used to work as a pharmacy assistant in my younger years and it was always what we recommended. Try a tube of it first off the shelf, but if you find it works then you can get big tubs of it from the pharmacy counter which works out much cheaper.
